Tweedy is new the collaborative project of Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his 18-year-old son and drummer Spencer. Together, on September 23rd, they’ll release their debut album Sukierae (pronounced sue-key-ray) via Wilco’s own dBpm Records.
Today, the father-son pair reveal yet another album track in “Fake Fur Coat”. Coming off the heels of the more abstract “Diamond Light”, this latest song’s bare-bones structure certainly falls closer in line with the earnest folk-rock of “I’ll Sing It”, “Summer Noon”, and “Wait For Love”.
Yet, even as it amounts to little more than Jeff Tweedy haggardly crooning over a broken-down acoustic guitar, there’s something more subliminal going on here. Maybe it’s the touch of bluegrass, or a certain kind of frills-free, Springsteen-ian balladry, but “Fake Cur Coat” definitely vibrates with a much different kind of warmth and integrity than its predecessors.
