"My favorite modern-day band," Granduciel says. He credits Wilco's 2002 documentary, I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, with inspiring him to be a musician. On A Deeper Understanding, the frontman specifically wanted to channel Jeff Tweedy's dissonant guitar solos, which added new dimensions to otherwise quiet songs like 2004's "Hell Is Chrome." "I like that there aren't necessarily any wrong notes," says Granduciel. "You just find that one note and if you hold it long enough, it'll actually end up being the right note."
