Based on the title of Schmilco (a nod to Harry Nilsson), and its cartoonish cover, you’d be forgiven for thinking their newest LP would pick up where its predecessor left off – perhaps it would be the second in a trilogy.

Returning briefly to the Star Wars trilogy analogy, perhaps this really is the second in a trilogy. Star Wars was all camp, something totally unexpected. The follow-up, like the second Star Wars film, is more grounded in a form of reality, with more introspection and darker themes. If this was Wilco’s intention, they have done justice to the comparison. Schmilco continues Wilco’s run of excellent form and stands up against the band’s formidable back-catalogue.
