Monday Morning Links: Jeff Tweedy presents the Chicago weather, Solar Fields new album out, Mumford & Sons make Doom/Folk Record

Just a few short snippets of interesting thing’s I’ve seen over the web this weekend.

This is a great little clip of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy presenting the news on Chicago TV station WGN’s morning news last week. Watching Jeff Tweedy report the weather was always going to be fun.

Solar Fields has a new album titled Until We Meet the Sky. The physical edition was out Friday and the digital version follows tomorrow (20th December). I’ve yet to receive my copy through the post but will most likely write some thoughts up after a listen or two.

You can hear samples and pre-order the digital version over at Ultimae records bandcamp page.

Yes, you read that headline right. Mumford & Sons have informed Rolling Stone that their new album, due in 2012, will be a more mature record and that it’s ‘doom folk’. In their words, Black Sabbath meets Nick Drake. I’m struggling to imagine that but definitely interested.
