Videos: Wilco - “I Love My Label” / Jeff Tweedy - “Dawned On Me”

While we’ve only heard one studio take from Wilco’s forthcoming eighth LP, The Whole Love, the band haven’t been shy about revealing solo acoustic previews or sharing session footage from their Chicago recording space, aka the Loft, ahead of the album’s September 27 release. Last week, they offered a glimpse at the tracking of opening cut “Art of Almost,” and now comes video of the boys putting “I Might” B-side “I Love My Label” to tape, complete with a steaming cup of Wilco (The Coffee) cross-promotion. Check out the Nick Lowe cover above and an intimate clip of Jeff Tweedy strumming through “Dawned On Me” in a seat at St. Louis’ Peabody Opera House below.

R.I.P. Clarence Clemons, 1942-2011

twentyfourbit:

Very sad news today: Clarence Clemons, iconic saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, has died due to complications from a stroke he suffered last weekend, The New York Times reports. Clemons, aka the Big Man, was 69 years old.

Clemons performed alongside Springsteen for four decades following their 1971 meeting in Asbury Park, New Jersey, contributing a slew of the most memorable sax solos in rock history to the Boss’ songs. Born To Run, which famously features a cover photo of Springsteen leaning on Clemons’ shoulder, includes a handful of particularly iconic Big Man-starring moments: the extended solo in “Jungleland,” “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” (where Bruce sings about how “the big man joined the band”), the title track, the stunning closing section of “Thunder Road,” and many more.

“I grew up with a very religious background,” Clemons once said. “I got into the soul music, but I wanted to rock. I was a rocker. I was a born rock ’n’ roll sax player.” Below is a classic clip of Big Man’s show-stopping solo in “Jungleland,” live in 1980, as well as a statement from Springsteen’s website:

No soy músico, mucho menos cantante. No pretendo demostrar nada, ni obtener valoración alguna.

Esta tarde han vuelto a meter en la carcel al novio de mi madre. Es así como siento la canción.
