I don't think "soulify" is really a word, but that's the most accurate term I could think of to describe Chicago-based JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound's recently-released cover of the renowned Wilco track, "I am Trying to Break Your Heart." The video for the song came to my attention this week, and as a major fan of cover versions that reinvent instead of merely retread, I just had to post. Check it out below.
They've also released the track as the B-side to their new single, "Get It Together." The band will play two shows this month at Tonic Room (2447 N. Halsted) - Wednesday, March 10 and Wednesday, March 24.
