Interesting CD releases for June 30 by uncdiversions

I’m really sorry to disappoint you. But other than one new CD, this week blows.

Notable mostly for new entries from cringe-worthy acts such as Rob Thomas and Killswitch Engage, there’s little of value in this Tuesday’s new records.

But luckily that one release is a biggie. And also one that’s been seeing pretty good buzz.

Genre-bending, counrty-leaning rock band Wilco return with their newest effort, sarcastically called Wilco (The Album).

The songs that have seen the public eye have all been great. “You Never Know,” which is up up on the band’s MySpace, is a very amusing Beatlesy comment on youth, and “Wilco (The Song),” which the band debuted on the Colbert Report in March, is a hilarious self-parody of Jeff Tweedy’s neurotic songwriting.

For Wilco to be 15 years into its career and be as self-aware as it is on these two songs is remarkable. And that fact alone is enough for me to want to take a chance on this one.

Sadly, that’s all I got for you this week. I’ll be back next Tuesday.
