Beck: "New Sensation" f. Liars, St. Vincent & Os Mutantes (INXS Cover) (Video)


It might seem unlikely considering the subject matter, but Beck’s Record Club version of Kick by INXS is actually shaping up to be the best in the series so far. We’ve already heard his take on “Guns In the Sky” with St. Vincent, Liars and Os Mutantes, and now Beck has recruited the same cast for this version of “New Sensation.”


The bubbly pop of the original is flushed down the plughole and replaced with mournful balladry, which includes a beautiful vocal match-up between Angus Andrew and Annie Clark. There’s also some Bad Seeds-style funeral chanting stirred into the mix, which adds to the somber feel of the track. Check out the INXS version below to see what a drastic overhaul Beck and his cohorts performed.

That's wonderful. Thanks for including the original, too. I agree that it seems they continue to top themselves. What is it about this one, do you think? The source material? The brand-new take?

Wow this is surprisingly excellent. I'm not all that excited for much of the INXS material, but this is surprisingly wonderful. What's everyone's favorite Record Club stuff to date? I thought the Oar work was pretty awesome.
