I had forgotten about Jeff Tweedy’s participation in the Boxhead projects.
“Review: Two Brothers (2001)
With Two Brothers a few things happen. 1) Some big names show up in the credits. 2) The songs are recorded in a studio rather than live in front of an audience. 3) From this point on things are never this good again.
Two Brothers sounds like there is a little more direction happening from Krassner. Themes or melodies may even be written out at this point and it may be the strongest album in the catalogue. The second track "From This Point Onward" is a gorgeous and lumbering piece and again, it's Lonberg-Holm gluing all the necessary parts together with the happy surprise of Guillermo Gregorio playing alto sax and clarinet beautifully. Two Brothers is meant to be a meditation on the American Civil War but the subject matter is generally useless to the listener. If you've got a long drive across the midwest or southern U.S. and a relatively quiet car, listen to this. It's perfect driving music. Also, perfect for a quiet morning twilight, breakfast and a loved one. “
