Wowza-Banger



Beck is a bit like Nandos (stick with us here - Ed) He comes in all flavours and strengths, from laid back, mild acoustic Beck, to full-power, burn your face off extra hot Beck. Everyone has their favourite, but nothing really hits the mark better than when he starts to play in the mainstream lanes, goading the MOR traffic with flashes of brilliance.

Last year’s ‘Dreams’ showed he still had that playful mischief in him, but with a full record on the horizon before the end of the year, ‘Wow’ confirms it. This October, we’re getting Pop Beck, the best Beck of all.

Both lackadaisical and fearsomely on point, ‘Wow’ is fun. It’s not high art - though it’s certainly not dumb either - but it’s music for hot summers, cocktails and good times. A slide flute hook, a slacker beat, there’s line straight back to the ‘Devil’s Haircut’ glory days, updated to the point it feels almost startlingly fresh. Pass the water, this one’s a scorcher.
