Having released The Whole Love earlier this week via their own dBpm imprint, beloved Chicago alt-rock outfit Wilco is being praised in reviews as having produced a work that is notable due to its willingness to experiment. Check out some of that experimentation after the jump with a stream of “Speak Into the Rose,” from the album’s deluxe version.
A near seven-minute alt-country instrumental, the track seems to showcase Wilco back in the divisive glory of their A Ghost is Born days. With odd undulating squeaks apparent throughout the drum-driven track, the band slashes and flairs over the steady beat the leads up to a rather worth it rock crescendo.
After 17 years in the business, it appears that Jeff Tweedy and company aren’t quite ready to pass the torch just yet.
