Tweedy will release their debut album, Sukierae, on September 16th via dBpm Records. In anticipation it’s streaming in full at NPR.org.

Tweedy is composed of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and his 18-year-old son Spencer on drums. Though still young, Spencer has steadily been building up his musical resume, playing with Chicago band The Blisters and playing drums on Mavis Staples’ last album, One True Vine. Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius and Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Minus 5, The Baseball Project) all contribute to Sukierae as well.

“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing,” Jeff said in a statement. “Solo to me meant that I would do everything — write the songs, play all the instruments, and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.”
