Beck’s 40th birthday was yesterday. We at Noise Narcs like Mr. Hansen, from his frequently underrated albums (2008′s Modern Guilt was a minor gem, if you haven’t been keeping up) and his weirdo Record Club experiment (the current one is covering Yanni’s Live at the Acropolis with Thurston Moore: I’m not kidding).
Do Scientologists even celebrate birthdays or do they Jehovah’s Witness it? How would they celebrate it? Beats me. But we can celebrate with his new collaboration with Bat for Lashes for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack. Are you
a Betty or a Veronika a Samantha or a Carrie an Edward or a Jacob? Zeitgeist!
