Looking through yesterday’s post on the sounds of the 1990s, I notice my affection for americana doesn’t reveal itself until Wilco’s release of Summerteeth in 1999. To these ears, the fine balance between alt rock and country is best heard through the output of Jeff Tweedy. In 1987, Tweedy and Jay Farrar founded alt-country trailblazers Uncle Tupelo. Their catalogue is thin, influential and no better than on the title track of 1993’s Anodyne, their major-label debut. The LP was a parting gift, but Tweedy and Farrar’s competitive relationship would yield Wilco and Son Volt, respectively.
