We’ve written about Wilco and Jeff Tweedy a lot in the years of this site, in part because Wilco continue to be supportive of what we tapers do, but more importantly because they’ve continued to refine and expand their live show, making for something worth recording. For Jeff Tweedy’s inaugural Mountain Jam, Tweedy decided to serve up a slew of new songs (twelve, to be exact) , as well as some of the best-loved Wilco classics including “Jesus, Etc.” and “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart”, as well as the always-poignant “California Stars” from the band’s collaboration with Billy Bragg. The new tunes will appear on Tweedy’s forthcoming album with his son, Spencer, entitled Sukierae, which drops on September 16.

While the Wilco classics are always welcome, the new material was this set’s standout. Tweedy managed to get the audience to sing along to “Slow Love” despite that none of us had heard it before, and “Diamond Light” already looks like another great “jam” song, with a fiery guitar outro that begs for improvisation. There’s plenty more we could say about the set, but for Tweedy fans, the reason to hear this will be clear, and we want to get it out there as quickly as possible. Without further ado, here you go.

I recorded this set with MBHO microphones from an area to the immediate right of the soundboard. Despite this being a wide-open outdoor show at a decent distance from the stage, the vocals and general PA sound is clear and direct, and an excellent representation of this performance. Enjoy!

    Some of these songs are some of the most gorgeous pieces of writing I’ve ever heard. “Nobody Dies Anymore”, alone. Good God.

    Hats off to the NYCtaper crew bringing so much good live music to a derved audience. I discovered this site by accident through archive.org while looking for Lucero. Did not find them but is this site providing good stuff. Sharon van Etten to Gov’t Mule. Where to start listening….so much goodies and so little time to listen. I will figure that out….Thanks for the music.

    Greetings and salutations. I was overjoyed to stumble onto this page while looking for a song called ‘Let’s Find Each Other Tonight’ Tweedy covered recently in awesome Coen bros. inspired series Fargo. I couldn’t find it but a rather recent full from Jeff is certainly not a bad consolation prize! Thanks for doing this peerless service for mankind. I have some older Wilco and Tweedy stuff, live boots and otherwise, and looking forward to hearing some of the lovely Sukierae album live. ;)
