It looks like Lucius and Tweedy & co. have been forming a friendship. On June 21st at Wilco-curated Solid Sound Festival Lucius joined the hosting band for their annual cover set, playing alongside legendary alt-country-whatever stars for a few of the tracks. If you had the good fortune to witness this performance live, then we might have been jealous (and probably still are), but at least now we can hear what we missed out on. Today marks the release of the live cover set, fully mixed and mastered. Check out the impressive setlist below. Looks like a must-have for any of you Wilco/Lucius fans out there. I know I want one.
