Loose Fur returns -- Jeff Tweedy and co. are Born Again
Jeff Tweedy fans, rejoice! A new Loose Fur album is on the way. While Tweedy fans have been given plenty of nuggets of late with a Wilco live album and his contributions to the new Minus 5 LP (not to mention the spring Wilco tour), Loose Fur provides another taste of the man's wares. In fact, not just one man's, but three -- Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche (also of Wilco), and Jim O'Rourke. The trio has worked on several projects over the years, with Loose Fur serving as a chance for a fun collaborative effort. Their first (self-titled) album was released on Drag City in 2003. Their follow-up, Born Again in the USA, is due out in March. However... you can sample two tracks now here on C&T:
Loose Fur - The Ruling Class (LINK REMOVED)
Loose Fur - Wanted (LINK REMOVED)
Billboard gave the release some coverage, and Prefixblog has an early review.
