The Chemical Brothers – “Wide Open” (Feat. Beck)
The Beck collaboration from the Chemical Brothers’ new album is here. More specifically, it’s at KEXP. The Seattle station played Born In The Echoes track “Wide Open” yesterday, and as The Future Heart points out, you can listen to it at the station’s archive. It’s way more chill than I expected — kind of a minimal electronic version of the Sea Change sound, or an entirely synth-driven Modern Guilt? Frankly, it doesn’t sound like a lot of other Beck songs, which is a hard thing to pull off at this point in history, and it’s not your average Chem Bros. track either. I like it a lot. Hear it here.
Born Of The Echoes is out 7/24 on Astralwerks.
