Wilco Go Garage Rock on Their First Indie Single

In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Will Hermes praises "I Might," the first single from Wilco's forthcoming self-released album The Whole Love, which he says "sounds like it was knocked out by a garage band, albeit a knowing one." Also, Christian Hoard loves Lloyd's "crazy catchy, joyfully profane, vaguely retro R&B" tune "Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)" and Jody Rosen gives the thumbs up to Drake's noirish "Marvin's Room." On the albums front, Barry Walters says that Brian Eno brings out the innate musicality of British poet Rick Holland on his new album Drums Between the Bells.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
