Recensione album

Golden Smog introduces their fans to the "post-Jeff Tweedy era" on this eight-song EP, the first release from the semi-supergroup to not feature the Wilco frontman as part of the lineup since 1995's Down by the Old Mainstream. Given Tweedy's minimal participation on the 2006 album Another Fine Day, his absence shouldn't come as a tremendous surprise, and this EP follows a creative lead similar to the album, dominated by smart but gently sloppy melodic structures and vocals that wobble back and forth between heartfelt and purposefully goofy. (Two of the songs here, "Can't Even Tie Your Own Shoes" and "Look at You Now," are leftovers from the sessions for Another Fine Day, so it's no wonder some of the approach rubbed off.)

With the future seemingly hazy for both the Jayhawks and Soul Asylum (whose members dominate Golden Smog at the moment), Blood on the Slacks' pearly moments suggest these guys might be saving some of their top-shelf ideas for this band for a change, even if they didn't spend a lot of time sweating over the finished product.

The group first came together in the Minneapolis area in the late '80s as a country-rock reaction to the punk and hardcore sounds that dominated the Twin Cities' musical scene at the time; eventually Golden Smog became something of a fixture...
