Tweedy’s Sukierae, the debut album from Jeff Tweedy and his drummer son, Spencer, is out September 16th via Wilco’s own dBpm Records. In anticipation of the forthcoming LP, the father and son duo have been premiering new material amidst their ongoing U.S. tour. Already we’ve heard recordings of “World Away” and “Low Key”, and now, courtesy of their appearance at Mountain Jam this past weekend, you can hear audio of their full 12-song set of new material.
The new tracks are mostly ambling folk numbers, such as the understated “New Moon” and “Slow Love”. “Flowering” faintly echoes Nick Drake, while “Summer Noon” is relatively uptempo. Meanwhile, “Diamond Light” is a sprawling, seven-and-a half-minute cut, which will be released on 10-inch vinyl on June 18th.
Closing the set, Tweedy appeased old fans by playing Wilco standards like “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart” and “Jesus, Etc.” along with the Uncle Tupelo standout “New Madrid”.
