It might sound crazy, but you can thank Wilco for the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in over thirty years. Yes, in the band’s latest music video for “Dawned On Me,” Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto, and the gang rock out with Jeff Tweedy and company in front of the SS Wilco in a video that’s visually appealing, easy on your earbuds, and full of win. Collaboration of the year?
One of the coolest “backstage” performances in recently memory, here are Wilco, Nick Lowe, and Mavis Staples collaborating on The Band’s 1968 single,”The Weight.” It’s a soulful, down-to-earth rendition that will make you want to quit your day job, pick up an acoustic guitar, and join your local gospel choir.
