Record Club: INXS "Need You Tonight" from Beck Hansen on Vimeo.
beck's record club is one of my new favorite things, and this week's video couldnt be any smoother or sexier.
if you don't know about this project, here is the rundown:
Record Club is an informal meeting of various musicians to record an album in a day. The album chosen to be reinterpreted is used as a framework. Nothing is rehearsed or arranged ahead of time. A track is put up here once a week. The songs are rough renditions, often first takes that document what happened over the course of a day as opposed to a polished rendering. There is no intention to 'add to' the original work or attempt to recreate the power of the original recording. Only to play music and document what happens.
