Wilco Kick Off dBpm Records With Limited 7" and Solid Sound Fest v. 2.0

It's been a while since we've checked in with Wilco, but suffice it to say: the band's been busy. After completing their contract with Nonesuch, the band has broken out on their own, and decided to start their own record label, dBpm Records. Unlike last time, when the band departed their label amongst big-music tomfoolery, this time things seem to have gone much more smoothly.

As such, the band seems to be in good spirits, and is kicking off the summer with a limited edition 7" as the first release from their label. Containing two tracks, a new Wilco song "I Might" and a cover of Nick Drake's "I Love My Label", the record will be available in two formats on July 19th: clear blue vinyl (online preorder), and classic black (retail, above).

If that's not enough for the collector in you, then head to Wilco's Solid Sound fest in North Adams, MA on the weekend of June 24th. In addition to hosting a slew of awesome music (Wilco, Thurston Moore, and Levon Helm band, to name a few), the festival will have a third, clear vinyl, version of the single available for consumption. Win!
