Amoeba Review

09/07/2016

For their tenth studio album, Wilco begat Schmilco – a grooving, eccentrically witty folk rock joy comprised of twelve mostly-acoustic, Jeff Tweedy-penned songs. Schmilco may owe more than its name to Harry Nilsson (Nilsson Schmilsson, get it?), as the wit seems particularly turned up in a Nilssontonian way with in-joke song titles like "We Aren't the World (Safety Girl)" and "Shrug and Destroy." Despite its reverence and reference to Nilsson, Schmilco is decidedly un-baroque with spare, casual arrangements filled out by acoustic guitars and brushes. The contrast to their previous chaotic album, Star Wars, is stunning. As Wilco gets quiet, their songs speak volumes. Less can sometimes be so much more.
