Lost Tracks: Wilco’s More Like The Moon EP

moonWilco’s More Like The Moon EP was a little dish served up post-YHF and pre-AGIB, showcasing some of the work done during the YHF sessions as well as a few new tunes. The early version of “Handshake Drugs” surpasses the album version in my opinion. There’s a little more of a groove here, and the recording’s a little rougher around the edges and all that. “Magazine Called Sunset” is one of the most upbeat Wilco songs you’re gonna find and one fantastic lost track, but it’s the title track that really steals the show here. As soft and gentle as a lullabye, Tweedy should make a whole record of tracks like this and “Bob Dylan’s 49th Beard.” Nice acoustic ditties with some random bleeps thrown in for the slightly weird vibe. Anyway, just want to say I love this little forgotten gem. BTW, you can download it free and legal here.
