Song Post: Checking in with Beck and his Remix of Lykke Li's "Get Some"



This remix is Beck's most recent song, believe it or not.  It's a remix of Swedish hipster chick Lykke Li's "Get Some."  


Us Beck fans out there know that the man is notoriously prolific.  So, it comes as a bit of a surprise that Beck hasn't released an album since 2008's Modern Guilt, excepting the songs he did for Scott Pilgrim and, sadly, Twilight.

The song is pretty good.  It has a driving, if repetitive, electronic beat.  It's not as dynamic as the original, but I find it a little bit more pleasing.  The original song is good, however I don't find it all that exciting.  This one adds a little something.

Makes me hungry for a new Beck album.

    I am not really a Beck fan, but the bass is worthy of my sub.

  9. I have been listening to Beck since Stereopathetic soul manure... On his first visit to 120 minutes on MTV, he grabbed the host's hand and wouldn't let go for the whole interview. And he barely talked. He's great. Interesting track for sure. Following
