Beck at Spring Studios (December 9, 2017)

By Will Oliver, December 27th 2017

This year saw Beck release his new album Colors vis Capitol Records. His tour didn’t come around this year for a proper New York show of his own, but on December 9 Beck played a special intimate show at Spring Studios for members of Hilton Honors program.

Prior to the show, guests were invited to enjoy an open bar as well as h’orderves and other snacks before Beck took the stage. Although Spring Studios is a decent sized room, it was modestly packed and still, getting to see Beck in a place like this was a treat.

Beck at Boston Calling 2015

By Will Oliver, June 5th 2015

1_Beck_Boston Calling

Beck ended the brief but fulfilling first day of Boston Calling with a career spanning set that was a mighty fine was to spend the final hours of the night.

Being a festival set, I anticipated a set more geared towards his hits, but even so, I didn’t expect so little material from Morning Phase, you know, last year’s album of the year at the Grammy’s (sorry Kanye). He only shared “Blue Moon” from that, but when you get a set featuring “Devil’s Haircut,” “Lost Cause,” “Girl,” “Gamma Ray,” and “Where It’s At,” how can you complain?

Beck at Hammerstein Ballroom (June 30, 2014)

By Will Oliver, July 1st 2014


Last night saw Beck take over Hammerstein Ballroom, the first of his back-to-back New York shows, with tonight’s show going on right now over at Central Park.

Things kicked off with an opening set from The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, the band led by Sean Lennon (John’s son). I saw them open up for The Flaming Lips last year, but they sounded even better this time around. Heavy on the psych elements, with plenty of vocals moments that served as reminders that this is indeed John’s son.

Beck started things off with an acoustic set composed of songs from the recently released Morning Phase, along with songs off Sea Change, its companion album of sorts. It made sense that Beck’s live band consisted of the band that made both of those albums with him (Jason Falkner, Smokey Hormel, Joey Waronker, Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Roger Joseph Manning Jr). They were also joined by Gus Seyffert.

[new]: Beck – Waking Light

By Will Oliver, February 11th 2014

Beck - Morning Phase

Beck’s new album Morning Phase comes out later this month (February 25 via Capitol Records). He previously shared the first single “Blue Moon” and now he’s fired back at us with a lovely cut titled “Waking Light.”

The Sea Change comparisons are inevitable, but I’m actually hearing a great deal of Pink Floyd in “Waking Light.” It’s a majestic listen that is quite breathtaking. It’s awesome.

Take a listen to it below.

[new]: Beck – Blue Moon

By Will Oliver, January 20th 2014

Beck - Morning PhaseOver the weekend Beck shared a teaser for his new album Morning Phase. It included a brief snippet of the album’s first single, “Blue Moon.” Today Beck has shared the new single with us in full.

Reports of it being reminiscent to the feel of his classic album Sea Change are fairly accurate. There’s a light acoustic guitar and dreamy feel that would have been right at home on the album. Beck also makes good use of electronic blips that add to the lovely atmosphere that the song dabbles with. Lets not forgot some typically strong vocal work.

It’s a great track, and a great sign for the rest of what’s to come with Morning Phase. I’m very excited.

Enjoy “Blue Moon” below. Read the rest of this entry »

Beck - Morning Phase

Beck’s new album Morning Phase comes out February 25 via Capitol Records. That’s the album art above.

We’ve yet to hear any recorded music from the new album yet, but today he’s shared a trailer for the album that features a clip of a song from the album titled “Blue Moon.”

It definitely has a Sea Change feel with a heavily present acoustic guitar, but there is also great use of electronics to give it a really pretty sound.

Take a listen to the new track and enjoy the video which shows the new record getting pressed. The video is posted below.

The other night Beck performed in Los Angeles, where celebrities performed songs from Song Reader, his sheet music album. During the show Beck himself performed a new track from his upcoming album Morning Phase.

The song he played is called “Wave,” and it was played with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It’s a lovely, haunted, song with strong vocal work from Beck.
