SotD: Wilco, “A Shot in the Arm”

Wilco’s Summerteeth is one of my favorite albums from 99. I’d enjoyed the alt-country sounds of A.M. and Being There and saw them in concert in 95 in Lexington, opening for the Jayhawks. But this third release expanded their palette immensely, and in interesting ways. “Via Chicago” was the emotional centerpiece and “I Can’t Stand It” sounded good on the radio the two or three times I heard it there, but I liked this one the best.
