The New Pollution - Beck


I'm sure there's a deeper meaning to this song that can be interpreted in quite a few different ways. For me, I like to sit back and let my mind wander, often times coming to different conclusions. I really enjoy the sax (at 1:28), it makes me feel like I'm drifting along in space.

What a coincidence! That sax line was actually sampled from Venus, by Joe Thomas.

Well, Dear Reader, it looks like you get two for the price of one today, let me know what you think!

If you liked The New Pollution, be sure to check out the album it's from, Odelay.


  1. beck fan here, spread the tunes!

  2. I'm all about being a 'who sampled who' geek.
    Beck worked with the Dust Brothers on Odelay (sampling masters who produced Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique).
    "Jack-ass" samples Van Morrison's band Them - their cover of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" - great version, check it.
    Full of the geeky music trivia, me.

    Get completely lost on for more of the same.

  3. beck is okay but jmj(the bassist) is awesome

  4. really upbeat the sax is sexay
