Video: Beck, St. Vincent, And Angus From Liars Do INXS’ “New Sensation”


Just so you know, Beck’s star-studded Record Club conceit, wherein he and a teeming stable of indie luminaries cover a famous album in its entirety, is rolling along: After messing about with the Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, and Skip Spence, they’re on to slightly more frivolous fare: INXS’ 1987 masterwork Kick. Except this version of “New Sensation” is slow, funereal, and remarkably beautiful. When it comes time for Annie Clark to sing lead on “Devil Inside” some dudes out there in Internet land are gonna lose their minds.
