Tweedy, “Sukierae”

What can’t Jeff Tweedy do? When he’s not touring with Wilco or appearing on Parks and Recreation, he does what every great father does: starts a band with his son Spencer under the fitting moniker Tweedy, and records a brilliant album. On Tweedy’s full-length debut Sukierae (Jeff’s name for his wife and Spencer’s mother, Sue), the older Tweedy reaffirms his status as one of the most talented songwriters working today. The album balances psychedelic rock with folk sensibilities along with delicate and heartbreaking lyrics that can be attributed to Jeff’s struggle with Sue’s lymphoma diagnosis. With Sukierae, the Tweedys produce an inspired double record, which easily could be considered some of Jeff’s sharpest and strongest work in a long time. Simple, yet complex, Sukierae is the portrait of a father connecting with his son during a personally trying time, by showing him how great songwriting is done.
