Hear an FUV Live session with 'New Dig' artist Tweedy, tonight at 9.

The latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is a collaboration with his son Spencer. The band started when Jeff was working with Mavis Staples on her latest album One True Vine, on which Jeff was producer and Spencer played drums. After the album was finished, Jeff and Spencer simply continued making music together. Now, under the very appropriate moniker “Tweedy,” the father-son combo releases their first album, Sukierae, on Tuesday and it's in the spotlight this week as FUV's New Dig. During this episode of FUV Live, we'll get a preview of some of the new songs and hear my conversation with Jeff and Spencer.
