Jeff and Spencer Tweedy release first video from their new band Tweedy
Spencer Tweedy, son of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, is only 18 years old—but he’s already sort of a rock veteran. He started his first band, the Blisters, at age seven, rang in his 13th birthday on stage with Wilco at Madison Square Garden opening for Neil Young, and has drummed on recordings by soul legend Mavis Staples and indie rockers White Denim.
He and Jeff recently launched a father-son band, appropriately called Tweedy, and they’re already pulling in gushing reviews from roots rocker types. They have an album (Sukierae) coming out September 16, and they just released a video for the lead single, “Summer Noon.” Directed by Allison House, the animated clip follows the wide-ranging travels of a lonely red balloon. Hit the jump to watch.
