Wilco side projects, Abdullah Ibrahim, Gidon Kremer

The Days of Wine and Booze

Scott McCaughey gathers some of his closest friends from R.E.M., the Posies, Wilco and more for his latest invention.


This is an odd but beautiful album with a dozen different variations on the "Happy Birthday" theme.

The Escape Artist

Ponticello is a Seattle trio that plays their own blend of ecclectic American Roots music.

The Mountain

This selection will likely sound familiar to listeners of All Things Considered.

All That Innocence

Singer/songwriter Patty Larkin has been a self-described musical "adventurer" for more than 15 years.


Sue Garner got her start in the fertile music scene of Athens, Georgia more than 20 years ago. On this album she blends scraping, angular sounds with poetry.
