autumn fires

i wish i knew how to link these things in a more attractive way but i don't know anything about computers. but i do like music and this song, WILCO'S-SUNKEN TREASURE, is one of my favorite songs of all time. its a live version from 2002 and everything is perfect. it's basically just jeff tweedy with his guitar for the first half of the song with some VERY subtle keyboards shadowing him. by the end it he's furiously strumming away as drummer glenn kotche lays down a stark and abstract drum beat. this is what i feel is the defintive performance of this song, the dynamics are perfect, you can hear the genuine melancholy in his voice as he questions the importance of music in his life. god i love this song.
