Calling Wilco the band Dad Rock at this point is no longer a slam but a base descriptor. They have embraced that term and moved on to cornier pastures, as on the Feist duet “You and I,” where Dad Rock and Mom Rock come together and make Baby Rock in Family Rock Heaven. The song is sweet and vibey, Juno 2, Grammy Viagra. I hate it, but I’m a sad drunk critic with no friends and a hunchback; I hate joy itself, and if nothing else Wilco the Album (the download lol) oozes this joy like so much punctured Twinkie.
