Beck blending genres at The Pearl

His catalog is akin to AM radio of the '60s, where genre designations were still largely a thing of the future and R&B, psychedelic rock, candy-coated pop and country could all be heard on the same station, one right after the next, even.

All those sounds, and plenty more, can be heard in Beck's free-range discography, where hip-hop and folk are bedfellows and the mood alternates between earnest and sardonic.

As such, he's been alt-rock's leading chameleon for close to two decades now, his repertoire akin to light passing through a prism, continually being refracted in different directions.
