Still “dad rock“?
Wilco’s “Unlikely Japan”, an earlier version of what became Sky Blue Sky’s “Impossible Germany”, is kinda batshit. It starts modestly with just piano, vocal and a steadily-strummed acoustic guitar, and then in a couple minutes ye olde Wilco static invades. And then there’s the synth, electronic beats and vocoder (vocoder?! JEFF NOT YOU TOO!).
My jury’s still out on exactly how much I like this, but even a trainwreck (the last 1:30?) has its appeal. I just can’t look away.
