It's been over twenty years since “Loser” was first released, defining its generation almost perfectly over the course of four minutes. I want that to sink into you all – one of the most zeitgeist-capturing songs of a generation is now culturally historic. Let's feel old together. Old and tragic.
Beck's still about though, and he's still writing his slightly dreamy folk-rock. His newest slice has a physical release on April 21 and it's brilliant – a slow and hazy walk through love and loss that at times recalls some of Pink Floyd's more contemplative material. Go check it out now, and we can weep for our lost youth together.
