Our favorite alt-rocker Beck is back with a new album. It is called Morning Phase and I have to say after a quick first listen I absolutely love it.
The good people over at npr.org have the whole album on stream and here’s a few words about it;
Of course, new thinking sometimes shows up disguised in familiar rags. Sure, Morning Phase resembles the earlier work in that it’s slow and stately and more confessional than any of Beck’s Odelay-style sonic jumbles. Get inside the new songs, however, and a more nuanced perspective emerges. There are surprisingly approachable settings here, songs that start with humble acoustic guitar and grow into vast and dazzling canyons of sound. The rhythms suggest a different experience of slowness, a patient (or maybe just grown-up) approach to the pulse.
So what are you waiting for – head over there to have a listen. Go go go!
