RT Music Score DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 800034362 LA English T1 Song reader : twenty new songs by Beck. A1 Beck,, Rosen, Jody,, YR 2012 SN 193807338X : 9781938073380 AB In the wake of Modern Guilt and The Information, Beck's latest project comes in an almost-forgotten form--twenty songs existing only as individual pieces of sheet music, never before released or recorded. Complete with full-color, heyday-of-home-play-inspired art for each song and a lavishly produced hardcover carrying case, Song Reader is an experiment in what an album can be at the end of 2012--an alternative that enlists the listener in the tone of every track, and that's as visually absorbing as a dozen gatefold LPs put together. The songs here are as unfailingly exciting as you'd expect from their author, but if you want to hear "Do We? We Do," or "Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard," bringing them to life depends on you.
