Bennett's Back

2008_08_jay_bennett.jpgWe've long maintained Wilco's Jeff Tweedy made a huuuuuge mistake when he unceremoniously booted Jay Bennett from the band, especially since it meant that after a brief flurry of solo activity, we haven't heard a lick of Bennett's delicious orch-pop. Well, that situation is about to change as Bennett prepares to release three albums in the next couple months: a solo disc, a collaboration with Ed Burch, and a Titanic Love Affair reunion. We bet any one song off each of those discs will have more hooks than in all of A Ghost Is Born. [S-T]
