J.C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound cover Wilco

I knew nothing about J.C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound until today, when I saw the video for their soul-style cover of Wilco’s I Am Trying to Break Your Heart on Boing Boing.

The group is from Chicago, so this comes off as a nice homage to their fellow Windy City dwellers. And let’s be honest: It takes some balls to tackle a song that’s become so sacred to Wilco fans, but these guys pull it off wonderfully, giving a bit of depressing indie rock a bright spin.

The cover is the B-side of a 45, available via Rabbit Factory.
