Loyalists are encouraged to cast ballots at his just-announced Beckvoting site. Beck's Record Club has, of course, seen prominent friends like Wilco, MGMT, Liars, Feist and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore help reinterpret famous albums.
Record Club renditions of songs from classic discs by the Velvet Underground, INXS, Yanni, Skip Spence and Leonard Cohen leave Beck's core audience with literally dozens of tunes to choose from. If the Feist-led take on Spence's 'Weighted Down' and the MGMT and Devendra Banhart-assisted reworking of Cohen's 'Master Song' seem like obvious choices, Yanni's 'Keys to Imagination' with Moore and Chicago experimentalists Tortoise are tough to beat.
