Beck, Os Mutantes, St Vincent and Liars deliver a delicious WTF moment

Beck is a cracked genius, no doubt about it. One of his multitude of ventures has been Record Club - where he gets likemeinded musicians together to record an album in a day. Check the mission statement on the webpage for the idea. Anyway, as any avid blog watcher will have gathered by now, a new album has been recorded by Liars, Annie Clark and Daniel Hart from St. Vincent, and Sergio Dias from the legendary Brazilian band Os Mutantes. The album? INXS' 1987 'masterpiece' Kick. In all fairness it is an example in pitch perfect 1980s pop rock chic. Chosen by fellow Aussie Angus Andrew from Liars, it makes for delightfully demented listening. You cannot believe how happy I was when I heard about this, and happier still when I listened to it and realised how brilliant it actually is. Go to the Record Club website to check out more, and view the creation of 'Mediate' in all its glory...

Fuck I love Liars.
