Listen: Wilco Releases New Single ‘I Might’
Take a listen to Wilco’s new single “I Might.”
The bell kit adds a nice touch, juxtaposed with distorted bass a la Queens of the Stone Age. Overall it’s got a catchy momentum, and makes use of space. Pretty safe-sounding, but still solid composition.
The band’s last release has a 76/100 standing on Metacritic. Judging by the safeness of the single, this album won’t break any charts, but the first song is much more interesting.
Whereas “I Might” doesn’t necessarily push many boundaries, the album’s string-laden, 7-minute-plus “Art of Almost” is certainly a fresh breath, delving into more percussive and ambient territory than they tend to frequent. The first minute reminds me a bit of an indie rock Battles, or of Radiohead.
