The Lonely Island & Beck – “Attracted To Us”

We knew Beck was one of the many guests on the upcoming Lonely Island album Turtleneck And Chain. Now you can hear him on "Attracted To Us," a fast and bubbly singalong that reminds me of the Mae Shi because of the shouted/chanted group chorus and synths, and Childish Gambino for all the… More »

Thurston Moore – “Benediction” (Produced By Beck)

Thurston Moore's newest solo album, the Beck Hansen-produced Demolished Thoughts, is out in May via Matador. It was recorded in Los Angeles and Northampton, MA. The title comes from The Faith's "It's Time." (It's also probably still the name of Moore's hardcore band with J Mascis, Don Fleming, Andrew W.K., Awesome Allison, etc.) For a… More »

Beavis And Butt-head’s Best Video Commentary, In Celebration Of Their Return

Last year MTV mentioned that new episodes of Beavis and Butt-head were in the works, but there was no premiere announced, and creator Mike Judge had no comment. But MTV officially announced the show would be part of their summer lineup yesterday during their new programming presentation. Very exciting! Even Justin Beiber is More »

Beck Remixes Lykke Li

Last week we heard Mike D's remix of Lykke Li's aggressive "Get Some." It sounded a lot like his Matt & Kim remix. Beck's remix suits Lykke Li a lot more. You could imagine her pounding out the beat on this remix during one of her shows. Vocals are pitched up, slowed down,… More »

Beck – “Ramona” (Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack)

Here's an isolated listen of "Ramona," Beck's ode to Scott Pilgrim's love interest, the haver-of-seven-evil-ex-boyfriends Ramona Flowers, from the forthcoming indie-rock manga-satire graphic novel gone Hollywood adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Beck's all over the soundtrack as the voice and noise behind Sex-Bob-Omb, Scott Pilgrim's fictional band. On "Ramona," it's Beck playing… More »

Devendra Banhart & Beck – “Life During Wartime”

"I did a song with Beck for Todd Solondz' AMAZING new movie Life During Wartime!!! If ya haven't seen his films check them all out, truly, one of the great luminaries," Devendra Banhart said in an email about his collaboration with Beck. The song's lyrics were written by Solondz, while the song itself was writte… More »

Nigel Godrich – “Rumble” (Music From Scott Pilgrim)(Stereogum Premiere)

As mentioned, Edgar Wright's Michael Cera-starring film adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim is out in August with Nigel Godrich serving as executive producer of the indie-friendly soundtrack (to which Beck contributed original songs as Scott Pilgrim's Sex-Bob-Omb) and the composer of an original score that includes collaborations -- Cornelius and… More »

Tobacco – “Grape Aerosmith” (Feat. Beck) Video

In which a working stiff experiences raw sirloin bursting through his skin to the sounds of Beck's disembodied moans and pleasantly dusky vocals, overtop Tobacco's "Terrible Lie" reminiscent synth-wonk spunk. The album's called Maniac Meat, which might explain at least one visual herein. Allen Cordell directs. It's the second track (after "Fresh Hex") we've… More »

Beck – “Summertime” (Scott Pilgrim OST Bonus Track)

Good timing on this one, as ComiCon is this week (Gabe is going!), and just yesterday Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, the sixth and final volume of the indie rock manga graphic novel you're most likely to have read, was released. And as you might remember from the day the internet first freaked over More »

Beck & Thurston Moore Cover Yanni

In the '90s, Yanni was weirdly present in my life. I only watched Live At The Acropolis once (and maybe halfway through), but someone gave me a Yanni folder as a joke, I owned a promo copy of the album, and he came up often as a punchline in conversation (that hair, that mustache, the… More »

Glee Does Beck’s “Loser”

I have never seen Glee, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying Gabe Liedman's recaps on Videogum: "If there’s one thing Glee is not, besides good and sexy and original and non-anti-Semitic and unpredictable and worth-watching and cool and inspirational, it’s FUNKY." Watch Puck and Finn choke on the splinters. More »

Stream Twilight: Eclipse Soundtrack

You heard Vampire Weekend's "Jonathan Low" (one of VW's top three songs about vampires) and before that Muse's “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)” (inescapable at vampire proms this month). Now you can check out Beck & Bat For Lashes' much anticipated collab... More »

Beck’s Record Club Does “Never Tear Us Apart”

It's the one we've been waiting for... As Beck & Co. continue their track-by-track move through Kick, they finally arrive at iconic '80s ballad/prom song "Never Tear Us Apart." As on "Need You Tonight," DJ Annie Clark handles lead vocals, and puts her intonations to good use. She digs deeply with… More »

Beck – “Bad Blood”

Already featured on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse OST, Hansen extends the vampire theme/thing by contributing fuzzy blues-rocker "Bad Blood" to True Blood's roots-y second soundtrack. The 14-song collection also includes new material from M. Ward (a cover of much covered "Howlin' For My Baby") and Lucinda Williams with Elvis Costello, along with old favorite… More »

Twilight: Eclipse Soundtrack Nabs Vampire Weekend, Beck, Bat For Lashes

After Thom Yorke, Bon Iver & St. Vincent, and Grizzly Bear & Beach House made soundtracks to multi-million dollar hormonal-teenage-vampires-in-love franchises a safe place for indie artists to premiere their wares, you had to figure more folks from Stereogum's tag cloud would lineup at the chance to lure Bella & Edward heads from the… More »

Beck, Liars, St. Vincent & Os Mutantes – “Mediate” (INXS Cover)

Beck's current Record Club has so far covered "Need You Tonight," "Devil Inside," "New Sensation," from INXS's Kick. There are likely a few more to come (if I remember correctly, Kick spawned 85 number one singles). This latest cover is the most fun they'll have with a song, probably. The "Mediate"… More »

Beck, Liars, St. Vincent & Os Mutantes – “Need You Tonight” (INXS Cover)

St. Vincent takes lead vocals, while Liars's Angus Andrew backs her up for this Record Club submission. Previously we saw and heard them do Kick's "Guns In The Sky," "New Sensation" and "Devil Inside." The original track was sexy already; St. Vincent keeps her voice at a breathy purr for this cover.

Tobacco – “Fresh Hex” (Feat. Beck) (Stereogum Premiere)

We brought you "Sweatmother," the first bit of electronic nastiness (in a good way) from Tobacco's upcoming Manic Meat LP, and mentioned that other tracks featured one Beck Hansen. Why not? He's not doing a lot these days. I was wondering if Beck's contribution would show through Tobacco's murk, but his work on "Fresh… More »

Beck, Liars, St. Vincent & Os Mutantes – “New Sensation” (INXS Cover)

Following last week's "Guns In The Sky," Beck's Record Club (it's like a book club, but cooler) tackles the second track on Kick all quiet-like. More »
