Phil Selway goes solo

The solo album from the drummer. It's not, to be fair, the most eagerly-awaited contribution to any group's extra-curricular activities. Still, Phil Selway has been doing solo stuff for nine years, so he's not exactly rushed into releasing his album, Familial.

Oh, and the line-up helping out is pretty good, too:

Singer/songwriter Lisa Germano, former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Sansone have contributed to the music.

It always bemuses me when drummers get other drummers in to play on their solo records, though. It's a bit like watching a dog take another dog for a walk.
