Beck

Beck was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night (3/1) which was hosted by Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons. He performed two songs from his elegiac new album, Morning Phase: single "Blue Moon" and was backed by a string section for "Wave." On both he was joined by Father John Misty's J. Tillman. You can watch both in this post.

Next weekend, SNL goes full Brooklyn with host Lena Dunham and musical guest The National. Beck videos below....

Super Mellow, still getting into this album, great performance short and sweet, made for more sketches and not tooting your own horn, classy Beck

Praise Xenu.

What's Beck's excuse this time for releasing another boring, "serious" album? Did some broad dump his ass again?

I know people who have worked with Beck and it sounds like he is an ASSHOLE.

I'm starting to think Beck suffers from an iron deficiency. His material lately is so dull and uninspired.

BECK is great. This album is inspired. BV nay say-ers are just that - nothing to contribute, nothing to mind. Ha! Critics are the cowards that come onto the field after battle and shoot the wounded.

Morons posting forget-able bs. May they go to hell.

Guys, this is his best since Sea Change. Let it sink in.

Drippy, not trippy.

Beautifully conceived, produced album. Takes time to absorb.

Posted by anonymous | March 2, 2014 6:15 PM

I almost feel sorry for Mr. FootFetish. You know he's working really hard to try and be funny, but it's falling completely flat. Probably the same dude who tried to do the D schtick for a while until he realized literally no one found him amusing. Sorry man. Try absolutepunk.com, it's more your speed.

that might have been one of the worst snl's ever. not a single sketch was funny. the host sucked. weekend update was even bad. that sketch with shaq and ? was awful. the new weekend update anchor sucks. and then to top it off, the music sucked. why do they even bother? they should have just broadcast a blank screen.

Real Estate is groovin compared to this shit.

If you think this is insufferable, just wait until Lena Dunham next week.

7:38 that's saying something...real estate is about as enjoyable as foot-guy

I love the new Beck album. It reminds me of Sea Change. Check out my review of 'Morning Phase' along with concert reviews @ http://wevebeentherebefore.blogspot.com/. Its a personal blog, no ads.

I really like the new Beck album, however, I was hoping for FJM to hijack the performance and sing "nancy from now on".

live from my butt, iyt/s sunday niiiiiiggghhhhtttt?

that J Tillman is an incredible back up singer. I saw him when he was with Fleet Foxes @Union Hall and you could really hear his parts and they were always perfect and added extra dimension to the song. His solo stuff falls a little flat for me though. I got to give it another shot

Next weekend, SNL goes full garbage with host Lena Dunham who will fall asleep naked on the toilet listening to musical guest The National.

These "City" jokes are just as stupid as all of the Daft Punk, hummus, frohawk and all of the other stupidity that you morons have spewed here for years. Maybe if you were at least close to being funny but instead you just come off as sad.

you're joking 2:53p, right? michael gira? i'd hang myself if i was him.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 9:49 AM

ha ha 7:13. midnite vultures was his best album ever.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 9:51 AM

Sea Change > Odelay > Mutations > Midnight Vultures > Mellow Gold > Morning Phase > Guero > Modern Guilt > The Information

Or something like that.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:18 AM

I think Guero should be higher. That was a pretty underrated album.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:23 AM

Does anyone really care about FJM? Know what's really cool about this backing band? That Justin Meldal Johnson is back.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:40 AM

I like sea change but not as much as some others. It is still a great album but I would go like this

Odelay<Mutations<Midnight<Sea Change<Mellow<Modern Guilt<Information<Morning Phase

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:42 AM

^Guero between Mellow and Modern

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:45 AM

Great fucking record.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 10:57 AM

Guero was the first Beck album that sounded like a rehash.

god damn, beck is so horrible.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2014 11:41 AM

1018 I think you got it about right. Top four could be in any order depending on my mood that day. Even the last three have a few good tunes on them. Beck has had some career so far.
