Three New Beck Songs Streaming Online
If you don't already know by now, Beck has a new album coming out on July 8 called Modern Guilt. In a carefully crafted rollout, the little one with the big hats has dropped a few songs at a time to calm the obsessives. Three have found their way to iLike. They're streams, but they sound okay.
The best of the them, or at least the biggest departure, is "Chemtrails," which draws from the well of both the Beach Boys and Love to create this weird, harmonic, psychedelic pop (not that Beck hasn't found inspiration there before). Produced by Danger Mouse, it bodes well.
Oh, and in case you haven't heard it before, here's Ricardo Villalobos' awesome remix of Beck's "Cellphone's Dead," from The Information.
