Golden Smog:: Another Fine Day (Album Review)

They started out as a kind of jokey supergroup involving a bunch of Midwest rockers, but Golden Smog has now evolved into a genuine concern for its key players: the songwriting constellation of Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, the Jayhawks’ Gary Louris and Soul Asylum’s Dan Murphy. The group’s fourth release is another treasure trove of Americana, veering from elegant rockers (“Think About Yourself”) to stomping barroom workouts (“You Make It Easy”). Louris’ old bandmate Marc Perlman also drops by to lend a hand, channeling the Burrito Brothers on “Corvette.” For a bunch of jokesters, these guys deliver some seriously good music.
