I’ve been dreading writing this entry for some time, because I know that if I say everything I want to say, no one will read it. Not much use writing to myself, right? I’ll break it down for you.
The album, titled Guero (short for “whitey”) came out five days ago. It doesn’t sound like the EP, but it’s okay because it totally rocks.
To find out a bit more about the album, watch or listen to the interview Beck gave on KCRW in Los Angeles last Thursday, or the one he gave to the BBC the day before that (with some really great videos there).
Notable tracks: E-Pro, Qué Onda Guero (wow), Girl, Black Tambourine, Hell Yes, Scarecrow, Go It Alone, Farewell Ride… who am I kidding? Buy the frickin’ album, cheapskate! It’s all good.
Beck is now unquestionably my favorite artist. Yes, that means I like him more than I like U2. Or Harrod and Funck, Daft Punk, John Mayer, Caedmon’s Call, The Flaming Lips, Lemon Jelly, and everyone else. Just check out my Audioscrobbler stats if you don’t believe me.
