Beck – “Looking For A Sign”

The new movie Jeff Who Lives At Home features a brand-new Beck song called "Looking For A Sign" on its soundtrack. It's a dusty, heartbroken countryish lope, one that reminds me a bit of the stuff he was doing on Sea Change. More »

Feist – “How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix)”

Beck and Feist are both single-named alt-pop icons with mass appeal; they are a natural pairing. And now they've linked up for a remix, with Beck taking on Feist's slow-burning torch tune "How Come You Never Go There." He chops up the song's vocals and horn-honks a bit and adds some big, loping drums. More »

Charlotte Gainsbourg – “Terrible Angels” Video

"Terrible Angels" is the title track from Charlotte Gainsbourg's forthcoming EP. Beck produced the song just like he produced Gainsbourg's IRM album, but it's a straightforwardly glammy dance-pop stomper, and it doesn't really have any of his fingerprints. It's basically a toned-down version of a Dr. Luke production, and it's the last thing I expected… More »
