MP3 of the Week

I love Wilco.  All you have to do is look at my all-time top played artists on iTunes (powered by last.fm and on the left sidebar of this blog) to see that Wilco is at the top of this list.

One of the bands that exists in the orbit around Wilco (and there are several including Loose Fur and  Golden Smog) is The Minus 5.

The Minus 5 is really the name of the people who play music with

Scott McCaughey of The Young Fresh Fellows.  This time around he’s got Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, and Glenn Kotche from Wilco, Peter Buck from REM, and Colin Meloy from The Decemberists among others. This note from Pitchfork tells the whole story.

There is one song on the new Minus 5 record, The Gun Album, that is simply incredible. 

It’s called With A Gun and its my MP3 of the Week

I hope you like it.
