It’s getting close to a year since Wilco (The Album) came out, but clearly the band is still into it, as they showed up on Craig Ferguson’s show last night (May 10) to perform “Deeper Down” from the album. “My next guests may be the best rock band in the world working today,” says the host during his intro.
They might not quite live up to Ferguson’s jokey preamble, but “Deeper Down” is a perfectly serviceable track from Wilco (The Album). It’s got most of the Wilco ingredients you’d expect by now—a country-ish twang, some acoustic strumming, and earnest vocals from Jeff Tweedy. They just need to slowly reinvent the Wilco wheel next time out.
