Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Lecture

Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of my favourite albums. But this sonic masterpiece was also one that said a lot about the state of the recording industry, predicted the future of how we’d listen to music and was the band’s departure that marked the end of the beginning for alt-country.

I’ll be giving a lecture on the influence of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot on November 17 as part of a series called Sounds of the Times: Albums that Change How We Listen sponsored by Ryerson University’s Philosophy department.
