Bloggy Goodness: Beck & Wilco Go Skipping

Last month we brought you news of Beck’s latest project called the Record Club, where the musician planned on teaming up with whomever he could grab to head into the studio and record an album by an artist of his choice in one day. The initial installment brought us Mr. Hansen’s take on the Velvet Underground’s self-titled debut. For the second volume of the project, the alt-rocker has recruited Wilco – who stopped by his recording studio on their recent L.A.-swing to tackle Oar, the revered cult classic from former Jefferson Airplane drummer and Moby Graper founder Skip Spence.


Finally, while rumors of the demise of the one-time blog buzz band CYHSY seemed to have been greatly exaggerated, the band’s from man Alec Ounsworth will release his solo debut Mo Beauty on October 20. Recorded at the famed Piety St. recording studio, the album is said to have a distinct New Orleans flavor thanks in part to Ounsworth’s all-star backing band that included George Porter Jr., Stanton Moore and Robert Walter.

  1. Was listening to an advance copy of Mo Beauty on Stanton’s wife Aletta’s ipod a couple of nights back – its pretty damned amazing. Apparently Stanton was on board & Alec said “We need a bassist that sounds like he played with the Meters.” Stanton said, “How ’bout George Porter, Jr?”, and the rest is history.

  2. A little late to ask, perhaps, but how do I get this? Will it be a free download on Beck’s website? Do I buy it online? How has this worked for previous projects? There is scant info on Beck’s website.
