Beck delves further into the 60's with Modern Guilt


Beck's new album Modern Guilt is out now and I'm digging its groovy 60's vibe. It's a little bit more psychedelic and moodier than his previous more upbeat and funky albums like Odelay and Midnight Vultures, but is definitely worth checking out if you're a fan.

This new album was produced by Danger Mouse whom you might know because he's been working with Gnarls Barkley on his last two albums.

Here's a video for the song Gamma Ray, even the video is straight out of the 60's, it sorta reminds me of stuff you'd see coming out of Andy Warhol's The Factory:

This is a promo video he made for the album:

Here's the video for the song Run from Gnarls Barkley. If you listen to the beats you can hear the similarity in styles with some of the songs on Beck's album. The guy DJ-ing is Danger Mouse. I love this video, it gets super trippy about half-way in so check it out.
