Album: Morning Phase
Genres: Alternative, Anti-Folk (Anti-Folk? Apparently so, however he is very Folk to me)
First Impression: This is enjoyable
In a fast paced world it is important to take the time to kick back, turn on the coffee, make some food, eat it outside while the sun is coming up and enjoy Becks new album Morning Phase, and you will quickly discover that you want this to become your new morning routine.
Beck (Bek David Campbell) has been entranced by music since he was 17 after hearing that one song that changed his life. Inspired by Sonic Youth & Grandmaster Flash you can easily imagine the awesome sounds to come. He started his career playing at local coffee shops and clubs and the rest is history.
This one man band has turned out hit after hit and has two albums (Odelay & Sea of Change) on the Rolling Stones list of 500 Greatest Albums. He has a way of taking experimental music and ideas and making it mainstream. Beck is the definition of a musician that makes the music magical, and will most definitely inspire generations to come.
I think there needs to be music for every part of the day and this is my new morning album. This cleverly orchestrated album includes subtle synth, attention to detail and a original country twang that will have you excited to wake up again & again and again, even if you have to take a day nap to fit in all the extra waking up!
I have been a closet Beck fan for years and, (not that I didn’t want to come out), it’s just that his music was always with me and he is one of those artists that I thought everyone knew about it!
Now there’s no excuse to not tell us what you think!
