Beck – Defriended
Here’s ‘Defriended’: A singular taste of returning Beck before new, acoustically-centered album(s) drop later this year. Beefy drums and fragmented synths split his familiar baritone into paused drawls. Pay very close attention, or you’ll miss motifs that occur with jazz precision. Folks musically-minded will find the sheer pace damn near arousing.
Scattered and discordant though the track will at first sound, it is irrefutably Beck and well overdue.
‘Defriended’ follows a recent collab with Jack White. Here’s a track from that effort called ‘I Just Started Hating Some People Today.’
