I Am Trying To Funky Break Your Heart

words by Dwellephant

While catching up on the weekend’s Boingboing postings, I stumbled upon this [above video] and immediately fell in love.

Don’t know how hardcore Wilco fans are going to feel about this, but as a casual Wilco listener who owns Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (and thus, this song), this cover tune did two things to me:

1. made me a fan of JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, and

2. made me wonder what other softer indie rock jams Brooks & co., could breathe new and exciting life into.

(p.s. Of course Konee Rok would be involved with this, too. Dude hustles like a champion, and is one of my favorites.)

You can download the mp3 of this little gem on iTunes and Amazon. Or you could be a trooper and nab the vinyl here.
