Wilco’s new album, Sky Blue Sky, is out as of last week. By going to this website, you can listen to the entire album through Quicktime. If you like what you hear, please go out and buy the record.

Wilco has a history of being VERY friendly to their audience in regards to streaming albums and live shows on their website. Their philosophy towards making music accessible differs greatly from that of the RIAA. They don’t think it’s necessary to limit the availability of their work, since the whole point of making music is to reach the audience, new and established alike.

If you’ve got a few extra bucks and are looking for a new cd to buy, I’d recommend this one. If nothing else, go take a listen. It’ll keep you company at work when there’s nothing to do (you know who you are).

  1. Yea!–It seems to be working.

    I pre-ordered this album on iTunes, but my account was screwed up, and I didn’t get to download it until a few days ago. In the meantime, I’d been listening to it for free via the website.

    My point, I suppose, is…be good to your fans, and they’ll be good to you.

    I love quite a bit about this album. And I’ll even be at their first North American show in support of it–in Davenport, Iowa.

  2. Yea Chad! I’ll be impatiently waiting until September when they come back to ACL, so you’ll have to tell me how the show is!
