Watch Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Mash Up Beck’s “Golden Age” & “Debra” With “Gold Soundz”
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks have history with Beck — he produced their 2011 album Mirror Traffic — so consider it no surprise that, with the release of Morning Phase imminent, the jammy Portland indie-rock combo paid tribute to the good Mr. Hansen Thursday at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. During the Jicks’ encore, a cover of doleful Sea Change opener “Golden Age” morphed to include bits of zany Midnite Vultures closer “Debra” and Malkmus’ own Pavement classic “Gold Soundz.” Check out fan-made video of the clever mishmash below.
Who’s up for a full concert of Jicks mashups bridging sad Beck and funky Beck? Just me?
