Sound Scene Revolution has a podcast up with an 8-Bit interview. 8-Bit, of course, made the Ghettochip Malfunction remix of Hell Yes and the Gameboy/Homeboy remix of Qué Onda Guero. They discuss the Beck mixes about 2/3 of the way through the interview.

This interview is most definitely not safe for work. At all.

Beck released a self-titled video compilation on the iTunes Music Store today. It includes the 21 videos below for $2.29 each, or the whole shebang for $24.99 The album notes read:

Beck’s use of strikingly off-kilter imagery — touched by flashes of humor and marked by deconstructed pop culture references — has made him one of the music world’s foremost surrealists, whose promo video work with Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze has exploded the possibilities of the genre. iTunes is proud to present this collection of Mr. Hansen’s videos — ranging from frantic early work, like “Beercan,” to the most recent videos for “Girl” and “Hell Yes.” You’ll also get video footage of Beck performing two of Sea Change‘s finest moments, “Guess I’m Doing Fine” and “The Golden Age,” live.

Here’s the list of videos:

  • Hell Yes
  • Girl
  • E-Pro
  • Ghettochip Malfunction
  • Black Tambourine
  • Gameboy/Homeboy (Que’ Onda Guero) [Remix]
  • Bad Cartridge
  • Lost Cause (Version 2)
  • Guess I’m Doing Fine
  • Little One
  • Round the Bend (V1 – No Beck GFX)
  • Jack-Ass
  • Mixed Bizness
  • Sexx Laws (Version 2)
  • The New Pollution
  • Devils Haircut
  • Where It’s At

Woot, two posts in one day.

Puritan Blister’s most recent post has an Ike & Tina Turner vs. Benni Benassi vs. Beck mashup by DJ Moule called Nutbush Vulture. The mashup uses Sexx Laws and Benassi’s Satisfaction; can anyone identify the Ike & Tina Turner song? It’s pretty good, check it out.

Wired’s Steve Silberman wants you to know about this interview he did with Beck last year. It never ended up getting published but, thankfully, he’s put it online for us to see. It’s a neat interview in which Beck discusses the relationship art and music.
