A deep cut from Wilco

Before they were the American Radiohead or supposedly Dad Rock cliches Wilco were an alternative country band. Their debut album “A.M.” even allowed Wilco the opportunity to dip their toes into the waters of the Bluegrass swimmin’ hole.

The track is all frolicking strings and wistful lyrics. Although Jeff Tweedy never tries any high, lonesome pining, and instead opts for a modern take on the fatal maladies affecting a modern relationship “That’s Not the Issue” is an unmistakably Bluegrass-inspired song. 

It’s also one of the highlights of an important band’s first album.
