Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Produced by the band, and mixed by Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth, Gastr del Sol), YANKEE HOTEL FOXTROT sees the Chicago-based band stretching their creative borders once again, imbuing their trademark sound with inventive "found" textures on their debut for the Nonesuch label. Singer/guitarist Jeff Tweedy's stirring songwriting melds with the band's unique and eclectic sonic approach on tracks like the poignant opener "I'm Just Trying To Break Your Heart." Highly personal lyrics meet stark and powerful musical backdrops on songs like "Ashes of American Flags," while other cuts - such as the delightfully wry "Heavy Metal Drummer" and "Kamera" - show off Wilco's more playful pop side.
Named in honor of the three-word codes used by short-wave radio operators, Wilco's fourth album sounds like a late-night broadcast of some weirdly wonderful pop station punctuated by static and the sonic bleed of competing signals. Songs that begin with simple, elegiac grace--"Ashes of American Flags" and "Poor Places"--end in a cathartic squall of distortion. The results can be initially jarring, but it's these tracks more than the sturdy jangle pop of "Kamera" or "Heavy Metal Drummer" that demand, and reward, repeated listens. Mixed by studio experimentalist Jim O'Rourke and produced by the band, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot harkens back to a time when the words "pop" and "sonic adventurism" weren't mutually exclusive. The Beatles and Kurt Cobain knew this, and clearly so do Jeff Tweedy and company. --Keith Moerer
