Best of Beck Six must-hear tunes
Death is Coming to Get You
An outtake from Beck’s unofficial, debut Golden Feelings produced during his very lo-fi, anti-folk years (my friend used to play it at parties).
Ingenious, ramshackle, folk-hop anthem and resented slacker millstone from 1994’s Mellow Gold (Beck released two other albums in 1994 – Stereopathetic Soulmanure and One Foot in the Grave).
Gets the Dust Brothers to help create a groovetastic, postmodern gem with 1996’s Odelay.
Exorcises his heartache with works of straightforward beauty on 2002’s
Returns to the Dust Brothers and party music in 2005 with Guero (he also seriously injures his back making the video).
Lovely, happy-sad west-coast lethargy from last year’s Morning
Phase or, if you like, Sea Change 2.
