Beck and Co. Cover Skip Spence's "Weighted Down," featuring Leslie Feist and Some Wilcos

We've been slacking on Beck's consistently fascinating series of covers over at, and have missed the fact that he and his band of crazies has been covering the entirety of Alexander "Skip" Spence's mope-rock classic, Oar. Our favorite track on the album is probably "Weighted Down," though we love "Little Hands," too. But it's the former that Beck and co. have just popped on the site.

Of particular note on this version of "Weighted Down" is the appearance of a few Wilco members: native Angeleno Nels Cline and Chicago drummer Glenn Kotche. And that's Leslie Feist singing.

Hell, it doesn't cost us anything to embed "Little Hands," too. Check it out after the jump.
