Stream reissue of Wilco’s “Being There” via NPR

What finer way to go out for the weekend than being able to listen to the reissue of Wilco’s classic album from 1996 “Being There” – including the bonus tracks, smart arse.  As they say, “The double album built on Tweedy’s strengths as a pop-rock songwriter while remaining tethered—but not too tightly—to the rootsy rock he was known for. The result was Wilco’s first artistic triumph, setting the stage for many to follow. And as the disc of outtakes, alternates and demos from the forthcoming Being There: Deluxe Edition amply show, even Tweedy’s reject folder overflows with treasures.” You can listen to the whole thing over at NPR here, or if you’re feeling rushed/lazy just a track below.  Have a good weekend dear reader.
