Malkmus Beck

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?

  1. best 6 minutes of my day

  2. There’s a bit of Peaches & Herb’s “Reunited” in there too (an uber-clever reference to Peaches & Cream? Ok I’m way over thinking this). I love how he apologizes at the end.

  3. I don’t think he actually sings any actual lines from the song Debra in there, other than saying the name in a falsetto.

    After all, Debra was about more about Debra’s sister.
