Jiminy Cricket

The Crickets

Tom Waits (on Robert Wilson): "Wilson, he's always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts - you wouldn't believe it. It's like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it's just slowed down, they didn't manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there's something to be said for slowing down the world."

Counting stars by candlelight
all are dim but one is bright:
the spiral light of Venus
rising first and shining best,
From the northwest corner
of a brand-new crescent moon
crickets and cicadas sing
a rare and different tune

Wilco Loves You

So Out of Tune

Following in the footsteps of Listen to the Dead and Phish Tracks, here's a Wilco website where you can stream what appears to be the majority of their shows: http://sooutoftune.org/
Looks like it also includes solo shows and side projects by various members. 

Rejoice, Wilco fans! The Spiritfather has bestowed upon us a great bounty of kind tunes to groove in the fields to. And all was well throughout the land.
