Wilco shares the love on new LP

'We'd go crazy trying to please all of the fans'
Glenn Kotche of Wilco

BANGOR - There is a sense of urgency within the grooves of Wilco's new album, 'The Whole Love.' This time out, the band offers 12 new Jeff Tweedy songs (16 on the deluxe version) that leave the listener with a feeling of contentment accompanied by the realization that time is short so make it count.

'The Whole Love' is Wilco's eighth studio album and was recorded in an atmosphere of total freedom and collaboration. Drummer and percussionist Glenn Kotche says every idea was explored in the studio when approaching these new songs. 'There was a sense of we know we can do all of these other things, let's just see what happens,'' Kotche said last week from his hotel room in Nashville, where Wilco had just arrived to play two shows at the Ryman Auditorium. 'When anyone had an idea, it was entertained. Nothing was really shut down.'
