Record Club: Velvet Underground & Nico "All Tomorrow's Parties" from Beck Hansen on Vimeo.

Scott's Tip Of The Day: I lost interest in Beck awhile ago. I enjoyed his albums less and less. A lot of it just started to sound the same. His belief in Scientology didn't really impress me much either. But now that he has introduced a newly designed website, he's upped the ante. Beck and his friends rerecorded all of the tracks on the Velvet Underground's debut album, The Velvet Underground and Nico. This could have easily been a disaster, but turned out to be quite enjoyable. Above I embedded a cover of All Tomorrow's Parties, my favorite track on the original album, and my favorite rerecorded track. Listen to it. Enjoy it. Even though Beck probably prayed to Xenu right after the recording session, try to forget about that. What? You can't?

Then check out Beck's interview with Will Ferrell. Not really substantive, but definitely entertaining. Beck is back!!!
