I think anything could be better than Good News For People Who Love Bad News. I don't know, I guess I just prefer the Modest Mouse of old. I'm not a fan of the poppier direction they've taken. Give me The Lonesome Crowded West any day.

Another Wilco album leaked online

By Jonathan Cohen Fri Mar 9, 9:29 PM ET

NEW YORK (Billboard) - In what is becoming an unfortunate tradition, Wilco's new album, "Sky Blue Sky," has leaked online, more than two months prior to its May 15 release date.

The group's 2002 album "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" was online for nine months before it was eventually released in stores, and 2004's "A Ghost Is Born" also hit the Internet well before street date. In the latter instance, Wilco fan site http://www.Justafan.org asked fans who had downloaded the album early to donate money to
Doctors Without Borders, a fund which eventually grew to $15,000.

"There's probably some good argument to be made that (the latest online leak) will prevent a few people from buying the record," Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy told Billboard. "But there's also the idea that I believe is true for us, which is, it's people listening to our music."

"We feel very proud of our record and we want people to hear it. Ultimately, that's the goal," he continued. "I think most people will do the right thing and support us and buy the record, even if they have downloaded it."

Added bassist John Stirratt: "Frankly, I would like to have people get a head start on knowing the material before we come to whatever town they live in."

To stem the tide, the group will stream "Sky Blue Sky" from 9 a.m to 9 p.m. ET Sunday on its official Web site (http://www.wilcoworld.net).

"We've always viewed the whole thing as similar to radio," Wilco manager Tony Margherita said. "We were prepared for it to leak as soon as the first advance CD went out. That's just part and parcel of the deal. As with previous records, our plan was and is to give people another way to hear the record besides the download, since these often sound like crap and are a pain in the ass for people who don't have a lot of time or are not super tech-savvy."

Wilco will get busy on the road beginning April 16 in Brisbane, Australia.

The leak was a result of their streaming of the album, was it not? The only rips out there are directly off their own feed (at least I haven't seen anything of proper quality). How does that constitute a leak?

I'm perplexed.

imp, my guess would be that reuters/billboard/tweedy are all just as confused as we are. people started talking about a leak as soon as the stream was recorded to mp3s and put on the net. there is no proper leak yet.

edit: that said, the latest link i provided does sound like it's in a pretty good quality

Speaking of good quality...


It actually leaked today. I'm downloading a VBR copy of it right now.

I was originally going to wait till May 15 for this one, but a two month advance leak is too much time to deal with.

To make up for it, I'm definitely going to wait for Cassadaga's actual release.

Yeah I'm hearing it too. It's getting pretty irritating.

I still think the quality is better than the webrip though.

yeah, but just a little bit.

this is a rather shitty leak. sounds more like a cleaned version of the web stream.

I'm hoping they announce U.S. tour dates soon. I'm probably only going to have the money to go to a handful of shows this year, and I want to make sure at least one of them is a Wilco show if possible.

It's good to know that the sound quality of the leak isn't great. I'd been considering caving in and downloading it this week, but I'll keep waiting.

Put the DVD into your computer. You can upload the audio on iTunes. Yes you can! Go forth and see!

Oh wow. That's awesome. One problem though. I get to the quicktime screen telling me to click to download. So I click. It doesn't download.
