Beck Record Club!!!

If you are a fan (we are), then you might like the Beck Record Club.... According to his site: "Record Club is an informal meeting of various musicians to record an album in a day. The album chosen to be reinterpreted is used as a framework. Nothing is rehearsed or arranged ahead of time. A track is put up here once a week. The songs are rough renditions, often first takes that document what happened over the course of a day as opposed to a polished rendering. There is no intention to 'add to' the original work or attempt to recreate the power of the original recording. Only to play music and document what happens." We really like the approach that Beck is using when covering these songs and the music videos are very lo-fi and awesome....Be sure to check out some of the earlier record club collaborations...especially their version of Sunday Morning
