has been on an absolute tear as of late. Specifically since their eighth album, The came out in September of last year. Jeff and Co. have been traveling from city to city, armed a deep catalog they seem to be changing up on a nightly basis. Except for ‘’, which is thankfully played at every gig and should be until either leaves or they break up all together (gasp!) will be committed to bringing you coverage of the remaining US so keep checking back. Last night played and on Friday and Saturday they play the in , CA. Check out the video for “Sunloathe” and my plea to Jeff after the jump

, released a video of “SunLoathe” directed by @PeterGlantz art by crew member Nathaniel Murphy. It’s a pretty trippy video that you’ve got to see.

A Plea to Jeff for an Electric Spiders (Kidsmoke):

return “Spiders (Kidsmoke)” to it’s rightful place in electric ladyland. Lately, the band has been offering us an acoustic take on “Spiders”, but in my not-so-expert opinion, it has hindered the song for this very reason. The original direction, a psychedelic jaunt through ’s paranoia is lost with an acoustic guitar. Let shine on “Spiders” like we all know he can. This is a simple plea to Mr. Tweedy and if you agree with me (how could you not?), drop a comment below and tweet to @Wilco with the following hashtag #ELECTRICspiders. You can thank me later. Here’s proof of it’s magic:
