Beck‘s Danger Mouse-produced new single, “Chemtrails,” definitely has its producer’s gnarly fingerprints all of it, from the retro bass lines to the spacey drums. But song isn’t exactly exciting — with its wispy vocals, it sounds more like Caribou‘s “Melody Day” than anything else — and I don’t think even DM can stop the once-beloved musician’s inexorable slide into post-Scientology irrelevance. Maybe dude should work with JT and Timbaland next.
