Alt rock darlings Wilco are at it again. Their eighth studio album The Whole Love (out September 27) promises more of the progressive group’s signature blend of folk, country and roots rock. Fans of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and the band’s self-titled seventh album have much to look forward to—the pre-released single “I Might” is a carefree jaunt full of catchy hooks that might just be this summer’s ultimate driving song. We just wish the rest of the album would get here sooner.

Hawk by Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan
2010’s under-the-radar collaboration by Isobel Campell (of Belle & Sebastian fame) and Mark Lanegan is a rootsy revival that’s haunting at times and raucous at others.
Quicksand / Cradlesnakes by Califone
Singer-songwriter Tim Rutili has been creating his own brand of acoustic folk rock for nearly as long as fellow Chicago natives, Wilco. Give their fifth album a listen, and lose yourself in Rutili’s gravelly voice.
