Apparently this song has had a bit of a resurgence from Tik Tok? I guess I’m just old and out of touch because I remember Gorillaz from a time long before that! (I don’t think it’s a bad thing if that’s how the kids today know the band. Anything that exposes people to different types of music/art is great. But it’s weird to me to play the song for someone and they recognize it as “that Tik Tok cartoon wardrobe song”!)
I kind of forgot about this Beck album for the past few years and just recently started listening to it again this week. One of the reasons I love Beck as an artist is that he doesn’t seem to be afraid to try new things in his music. ‘Morning Phase’ is definitely a different beast than some of his other albums but I’d say it’s one of my favorites.
