Out Of Touch

Until it was brought to my attention indirectly at Samizdata, I wasn't even aware that Beck has had a new record out for over a year now. I looked it up and this was the first thing I found...

Not bad. When I first listened to it I misinterpreted one of the lyrics as "something calling across the water", when apparently it is "songbird calling across the water". I prefer my misinterpretation, having made it my business to cross the waters of Taiwan's reservoirs.

I've liked Beck's music since I bought the "Mutations" record on the day it went on sale in the UK way back in 1998. I hope he keeps going; he seems to be getting better with age.
