Beck Debuts Record Club With the Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And it sounds pretty amazing

Yesterday, we told you about Beck's new Record Club project, wherein Beck and friends will pick an album, spend one day recording a cover of the entire thing, and then post it on the internet, one song at a time.

Beck's starting the project off with his version of the Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground and Nico, and today he posted the first song from the project, perennial mixtape staple "Sunday Morning". You can hear it now, complete with intentionally grainy footage of the studio session, on Beck's website.

Fuckin' aye man, that sounds great. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album, and EVOL as well.

Don't really like it, but I like it enough to check out some of the rest when it comes out.

Great idea, though I'd prefer to hear Beck do VU's third album - it's folky feel is more his style. Then again, Beck can pretty much do any musical sub-genre successfully.

I don't really like Beck but I love The Velvet Underground. I enjoyed what I heard and I'd like to hear more.

About 13 years ago at Spaceland, I saw him participate in a live remake of Rush's "2112" with a band called Lutefisk. It was hilarious!
