Tweedy: Low Key

New energy found among household names like Melvins, Aphex Twin, Thom Yorke and more in the music we tweeted this week

Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer had us at “directed by Nick Offerman” with their new video for “Low Key,” a song off their debut album Sukierae. For the visual narrative, the “Parks and Recreation” actor sends the duo on the road as traveling salesmen (peddling their album) who—despite holding precious cats—are rejected by the likes of Conan O’Brien, Chance The Rapper and other celebs. While some musicians may lean on famous faces to bolster an average song, this isn’t the case; “Low Key” is perfectly low key and full of welcome whoo-hoos that “dad rock” Jeff is known and loved for in his own right, and now with his son.
