If you’re a fan of Americana-inspired mope rock and small paper notebooks, have we got something for you. Wilco, one of my favorite bands, and Field Notes, one of my favorite notebook makers, have teamed up to release something that can only be described as outtasite.

The notebooks were made in conjunction with members of the band. From the press release:

We paired each member of Wilco with an exceptional artist, handed them all the same limited palette of colors, and let them improvise. This ?Wilco x Field Notes? Box Set is the result of that collaboration. The six Memo Books reflect the craft and talent of the artists and the passions and personalities of the musicians, and they?re waiting for your lyrics, set-lists, and show notes ? or maybe your reminders, grocery lists, or meeting notes. Whatever it is, it?s always a good idea to write it down.

Field Notes is a great little business. They made their notebooks in America and I’ve used a few of them over the years. The artists in this special set include:

Jeff Tweedy &?Aaron Draplin
Mikael Jorgensnen &?John Gall
Glenn Kotche &?Cody Hudson
Pat Sansone &?Lauren Dickens
John Stirratt &?Brett Stenson
Nels Cline &?Lawrence Azerrad

I, for one, will use them to write notes for my heavy metal drummer. You can pick up the notebooks at WilcoWorld for $27.50.
