Worn out your copy of the masterful Yankee Hotel Foxtrot? Here’s a noodling, 39-minute sidecar by Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, drummer Glenn Kotche, and Foxtrot contributor/classic-rock abstractionist Jim O’Rourke. Anthemic minus guitar heroism, psychedelic without melting walls, modestly pretentious, it’s art rock in overalls. And where Foxtrot’s greatness was its struggle between tunes and chaos, here the latter tips the scales. Some nice moments; meanwhile, Wilco’s More Like the Moon EP arrives this spring.
