Beck's Record Club – Velvet Undergound's Sunday Morning

Beck is a madman. I've always been super into his sound, and most music enthusiasts agree that he's always bringing some serious work to the table. The thing I think I love most about Beck is his very unique experimentations with songs, which always turn out awesome.

His new project "Record Club", is in fact that, a record club. He describes it as an


informal meeting of various people to record an album in a day. An album will be chosen to be reinterpreted and used as a framework. Nothing rehearsed or arranged ahead of time. A track will be uploaded once a week on beck.com as well as through the web sites of those involved with the project.


For their first run at it, they went with The Velvet Underground & Nico's "Sunday Morning", after much deliberation between it and The Digital Underground "Sex Packets". Participants in this release are Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Brian Lebarton, Bram Inscore, Giovanni Ribisi, Chris Holmes, Thorunn Magnusdottir, and of course, Beck.

Here we have the video for the session, and a download of the song (sshhh, you won't find this anywhere else very easily for a minute!) It was just released today, and I am thoroughly impressed. So put it on, and let Beck get all Velvet Underground on you.

    I am JSully, the author of the above article you decided to criticize:

    Here is what you wrote on 06/29/2009, 11 days AFTER my posted article, which was written on the day the songs and video were released:

    "I think I mentioned this last week (too lazy to look) but Beck has a new project called the Record club. His first project is to cover the Classic Velvet Underground & Nico album. The first two songs are available & here they are."

    You also stated, the week before:

    "Beck has gotten some talented people together and begun what he refers to as the Record Club."

    And that's it. There was also a quote, taken directly from the BECK website, just like my article, which happens to be similar to the other blogs I am sure covered this story.

    I think you can tell the difference in the articles. I'm on vacation right now, enjoying the one week I've taken all year, and this comment was enough for me to find internet and repost. I however, got my sources directly from the Beck website which you can find at:
