LISTEN: Beck ‘Looking For A Sign’
Indie superhero BECK was pretty busy last year producing phenomenal albums by Stephen Malkmus and Thurston Moore (I have a dream where these three dudes get gay married and adopt me. Don’t ruin it). However he’s now gotten back to writing stuff of his own, with a new Beck song being featured in an Ed Helms/ Jason Segel Indie comedy, Jeff Who Lives At Home.
And it is a real treat.
The track, titled ‘Looking For A Sign’ seems to be a return to the downbeat, melancholy bluegrass of Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change. This is exciting for a lot of fans, as Sea Change is widely regarded as one of indie’s greatest albums of all time- for its deft song writing and beautiful emotional intensity, a tone which Beck has not really revisited since. There is not information yet as to whether this song will be released commercially, but you can listen to it here.
