“80% awesome and 20% ridiculous.” - Andrew Sherman
Stereogum is reporting the newest effort to push boundaries concerning the perceived limitations of listener experience in music. Beck’s idea is surprisingly endearing and feels more genuine than most attempts of pop music spectacle. Sure - it lends itself to terrible, terrible covers - but even if it has 10 success stories and 10,000 duds - it’ll still be a lot of fun to see listener engagement on this level.
Song Reader is due out in December!
Fortunately for you - you’re probs not going to hear any Beck Covers from me - all I got is two turntables and a microphone and the song above requires a ukulele.
