As you may know, we love Full Album cover sets. We also love Wilco. We’ve done a whole set of Wilco covers in the past, but never fit them into our Full Album rotation. Thanks to Muzzle of Bees, now we don’t have to.

The Wisconsin-based music blog commissioned fifteen local artists to cover every track off the band’s seminal Summerteeth. The album is called Wisco: A Wisconsin Tribute to Wilco’s Summerteeth (cute) and features a bunch of great bands you’ve never heard of (and maybe a few you have) covering “Can’t Stand It,” “She’s a Jar,” “A Shot in the Arm,” and all the rest. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot would have been the more obvious choice (or, given the blog’s name, A Ghost Is Born), so big ups to Muzzle for throwing a curveball. We’ve got a couple sample tracks below. Check those out, then pop over to Muzzle of Bees for the whole thing.

  1. Yes!!! My favorite Wilco album! The original is an underrated masterpiece. (In my opinion, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is great, but the production absolutely ruins a few of the songs for me… in their album version, at least.)

  2. thank you. thank you. u in illinois?
