Famed roots rockers Wilco are out with a new album, Ode to Joy. Wilco puts less pressure on themselves these days and recorded at the band's studio in Chicago, The Loft. So, Ode to Joy is more of a low-key collection of songs.
The band will play at The St. Augustine Amphitheatreon April 18, in their only Florida show. Lead singer Jeff Tweedy joined us with a preview.
