Beck’s Record Club

Beck’s Record Club is a one of my favourite projects on the internet right now. A cast of musicians gather and record an album in a day, and the videos are rough, and unrehearsed, and sometimes incredible.

INXS – “Kick” – St. Vincent + Liars + Os Mutantes

Skip Spence – “Books of Moses” – Feist + Jamie Lidell + Wilco

      I think it might be fun just to play someone elses songs

    I guess I am not much of a cover person. I like to jam and make new songs.

    This is such an interesting project! I think that the platform is perfect to let a guy like Beck really stretch out and play with his musical curiosities. His massive creativity is really on display throughout, especially in the (careful?) curation of the accompanying artists.

    Those Yanni sessions are incredible!
