156: Beck – Wow

The Beck introduced to me through brief glances at Morning Phase and Modern Guilt was an introspective singer-songwriter with exemplary abilities approaching middle-aged calm. After all, it must be true if Kanye objects. Yet, when ‘Dreams’ appeared a year ago to consistent declarations that it was the 23rd best track of 2015, something seemed to have gone gloriously upbeat and moderately bizarre. ‘Wow’ turns that up another few dozen notches, name-checking Lamborghini shih tzus and sporting an instrumental that riffs slightly on ‘Goodies’ churned through woozy panpipes.
