      Hyperspace

        Beck's 14th album feels like an amalgamation of previous albums, given a light dusting of pop sheen, thanks to the production of Pharrell Williams amongst others.

        It's largely set at a fairly slow pace, with nods to the folk tinged melancholy of ‘Sea Change’ or ‘Morning Phase’, some lovely slo-mo synth-soaked pop and occasional upbeat moments: "Saw Lightning" harks back to his "Loser" days and is as upbeat and catchy as anything he's ever done.

        On ‘Hyperspace’, he's hit the sweet spot between his adventurous, experimental past and the more accessible 'pop' leanings of his recent releases.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: As ever, a brilliantly produced and impeccably conceived outing from the ever-reliable Beck. This one has a little more reliance on big rock choruses contrasting to Morning Phase's hazy atmospheres and languid curves. It's as brilliant as anything he's done for a long while, and shows clearly that there's no end to this man's talents, at least not yet!

        Beck

        Mutations

          Reissue of Beck's 1998 album Mutations. Whereas his previous album, Odelay had been a found-sounds and sample heavy mish mash of folk, blues, grunge, old-school hip hop and electro, Mutations harks back to the more stripped back style of his One Foot In The Grave album. It’s a laid back, mostly acoustic affair, taking in psychedelic-folk, country and blues. It may not have the commercial punch of Odelay but it’s a fantastic album that still stands up today, and shows what a great songwriter Beck is. 180 gram vinyl and includes download code.

          JACK WHITE, JEFF TWEEDY, FUN., JARVIS COCKER, JACK BLACK, AND A HOST OF OTHERS JOIN BECK TO BRING ACCLAIMED SHEET MUSIC-ONLY ALBUM TO LIFE

          The now legendary Beck, Song Reader - twenty Beck compositions previously released exclusively as stunningly illustrated sheet music in partnership with McSweeney’s - receives a long awaited traditional release when Warby Parker/Capitol Records issues the Beck Song Reader compilation album, produced by Beck and Randall Poster, known for his music supervision work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and many others. Warby Parker will commemorate the release of Song Reader by reissuing limited-edition Carmichael frames created in collaboration with Beck, this time in Black Cherry—as well as a new edition of the Song Reader book, featuring two new prints from artist Marcel Dzama.

          The 20-track all-star collection features exclusively recorded versions of Song Reader charts by the likes of Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, David Johansen, Jason Isbell, Fun., Eleanor Friedberger, and several more including Beck himself.

          The Warby Parker release of Beck Song Reader marks the first officially recorded incarnation of the project, which has already inspired interpretations from hundreds of musicians the world over. The record includes the studio-quality debut of songs previously only played live either by Beck himself or at one of the handful of Song Reader concerts staged over the last two years. The most recent of these was presented by the L.A. Philharmonic in partnership with McSweeney’s and Warby Parker at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on November 24, 2013. Described by The Los Angeles Times as an “expertly delivered and received night… another big step in Beck's long, fascinating evolution,” the show’s highlights included Jarvis Cocker’s interpretively danced “Why Did You Make Me Care?" and Jack Black’s borderline frightening “We All Wear Cloaks,” the latter of which makes its recorded debut on the Beck Song Reader album.

          Odelay

            'Odelay' is the second full-length studio album by Beck and was originally released on June 18, 1996. On its release, 'Odelay' received almost unanimous critical applause. 'Odelay' was nominated for the Grammy award for album of the year and won a Grammy for best alternative music album in 1997 as well as a Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for Where It’s At. Odelay was also ranked number 16 in Spin Magazines 100 Greatest albums (1985-2005). 'Odelay' was awarded Album of the Year by Rolling Stone and was voted as the best album of the year by The Village Voice. In 1998, Q magazine readers voted 'Odelay' the 51st greatest albums of all time and number 9 on its list of 100 best albums of the nineties.

            Sea Change

              THE PICCADILLY RECORDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2002

              Despite baffling reviewers by not continuing with his genre twisting hip-funk beats, this is a truly beautiful work. Musically it sees Beck returning to his folk roots but with superb production (by Nigel Godrich) that gives the songs a lush melancholic gloss. It grooves still, but it's laidback and the words of sadness, loss and longing complete the magical picture. Part acoustic and part orchestral, the songs are some of Hansen's most personal and touching, as well as melodically dreamlike and engaging. If you loved his cover of "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" on 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind', then prepare yourself for a whole album of similarly imagined originals. Dismissed by the majority of critics at the time as half-baked, with no single releases or press interview to support it, "Sea Change" quickly became a very special record at our shop and was unanimously voted the Piccadilly Records Album of the Year back in 2002.

              Beck

              Guero

                "Guero" is already being heralded as one of Beck's finest albums and it sees a return to collaboration with producers The Dust Brothers (who last worked with him on "Odelay"). Gone are the melancholic acoustic vibes of "Sea Change", well mostly anyway - there is still some melancholy (and a few guitar twangs!) in amongst the "Odelay" style funky loose grooves, hip hop loops and samples. But don't think that this is by any means a step backwards, the reference points and influences on "Guero" are much wider and more refined than "Odelay" and the whole feel of the album is more cohesive. We love it!
