“Lay your arms down. Say your prayers.”

“Defriended” by Beck | Also going the non-album single route is Beck, with his first new material since 2008’s deeply affecting Modern Guilt. “Defriended” still sounds like Beck, only a bit more jagged (not that he hasn’t done that, but this is not the same as his other stuff) and, perhaps, desolated. (Another thing connecting this song to my earlier entry: hints of Kraftwerk. Then again they’re arguably everywhere.) The interesting bit is that he won’t be releasing this song in either of the two (yes) studio albums he has in the works. Evidently that five-year gap wasn’t idle.

Got something?
