Beck

What Beck Was Thinking Back in 2007?


Our Vintage Cafe this week is with Beck. Tomorrow he releases Morning Phase, his first new album since Modern Guilt in 2008. This interview is from 2007 around the time of the release of the Deluxe edition of his album The Information. It contains some fine performances including “I Think I'm In Love” and a wide ranging discussion touching on the hip-hop and indie music scenes. At the time Beck wasn't sure he was still a member of those communities. Also he looks back on his early days dropping out of high school and traveling before settling back in Southern California.
