Though I'm not exactly a Beck fanatic, I do own all of his albums, and I appreciate the musician's expert ability to dabble in so many genres. Most recently, he's handing us an experiment in country music in the form of a cover tune: "Forget Marie," written by the recently deceased Lee Hazlewood.
Recorded in Nashville and now streaming on Beck's homepage, the ambling cowboy tune will appeal to fans of Beck ballads. The ethereal but quirky vibe reminds me a lot of his album, Mutations, which is one of my favorites. I especially like the whistling at the end. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.
