Beck and Tweedy [re: Forgotten_Boy]  

The new Beck album "Oar" is pretty weird stuff. It's a cover of an old album by a dead man, this is what pitchfork.com said about it a while ago:

"Beck got together with Wilco in L.A. to record their version of the 1969 cult fave Oar by onetime Moby Grape/Jefferson Airplane member turned acid casualty Skip Spence. Beck's long been a public admirer of Spence; he covered Oar's "Halo of Gold" on the 1999 tribute album More Oar. We are good and excited to hear what happens when Beck and Jeff Tweedy, the owners of two of rock's most evocatively weary voices, sing on the same track."

I haven't been able yet to decide wether I like the album or not, but in any case it is definitely worth checking out. The original is unknown to me but the Beck /Wilco (and Feist) collaboration is certainly interesting stuff. It has some weird tunes and noises on it, which make it as far from the mainstream as I am just able to cope with - and then again it has some very cool drum loops and vocals which are not far from radio friendly pop.

This is not a comfortable listening experience, but an interesting one nevertheless. Probably even more so for those who have ever heard the original by Skip Spence.

Tracklist:

01 - Little Hands (Skips Spence cover feat. Feist, Wilco and Jamie Lidell)
02 - Cripple Creek (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Feist, Jamie Liddel)
03 - Diana (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Feist & Jamie Lidell)
04 - Margaret-Tiger Rug (Skip Spence feat. Wilco, Jamie Lidell, and Feist)
05 - Weighted Down (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Feist and Jamie Lidell)
06 - War in Peace (Skip Spence cover feat. Feist, Wilco and Jamie Lidell)
07 - Broken Heart (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Feist and Jamie Lidell)
08 - All Come To Meet Her (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco & Jamie Lidell)
09 - Books of Moses (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Jamie Lidell and Feist)
10 - Dixie Peach Promenade (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Jamie Lidell, and Feist)
11 - Lawrence of Euphoria (Skip Spence Cover feat. Wilco, Jamie Lidell, and Feist)
12 - GreyAfro (featuring Wilco, Jamie Lidell & Feist)
