Featured Release This Week From Tweedy

Sukierae ​(pronounced "sue-key-ray") is the debut album from the duo Tweedy.  Tweedy is mainly Jeff Tweedy, best known for being the leader of Wilco, as well as his work in Uncle Tupelo with Jay Farrar (and the sometimes overlooked group Loose Fur).  Jeff is the guitarist, vocalist, bassist and keyboard player in Tweedy, joined by his 18-year old son Spencer on drums.  Sukierae certainly does not represent a great musical departure for Jeff Tweedy.

California native Ty Segall began his career playing in various underground bands in Orange County and the San Francisco Bay Area.  Since 2008, the songwriter/vocalist/guitarist (and drummer)  has been prolifically releasing solo material.  Segall has followed the indie rock tried and true path of starting out lo-fi, fuzzed-out and experimental, then steadily refining his music, still retaining that initial spirit.  Now we have Manipulator, Ty Segall's most satisfying record to date, with a generous 17 tracks that move along in well-crafted form for nearly an hour.
