Beck and Wilco Cover Skip Spence

In one of the coolest musical endeavors of the year, Beck has been covering entire albums with his musician friends and making them available song by song on his website. So far, he's covered "The Velvet Underground and Nico" and "The Songs of Leonard Cohen" with a wide mix of artists including members of MGMT and Devendra Banhart.

Well, now Beck has tackled former Moby Grape member (and famous acid casualty) Skip Spence's 1969 underground masterpiece "Oar". And this one features members of Wilco and Leslie Feist, which means my interest is officially peaked! Enjoy the first track and cool video below.
