Swift meet Wilco: Skip off into the sunset

This is the type of stuff I like to see.
From CMJ:

California crooner Richard Swift (of PWAH favorite: Indiana's Secretly Canadian label) is set to embark on a month-long, North American tour, garnering a highly coveted slot opening for Wilco, whom the songwriter met while recording a session for the BBC program Later...With Jools Holland on the same day as the band. Swift is currently on the road in support of "Dressed Up For the Letdown" (Secretly Canadian), while simultaneously busy working on a debut release for his ambient, electronica side project, the Instruments of Science & Technology. Swift and Wilco will end the slew of dates with two nights at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium. (It's just too bad that people as talented as Swift have to freaking have a nervous breakdown before people starting paying attention to their art)
