Beck's Philip Glass Remix To Feature Memory Tapes, Amon Tobin
On the mainstream end of obscure news, Beck is putting together a CD of Philip Glass remixes featuring Glass covers by Memory Tapes, Amon Tobin, Cornelius, and Tyondai Braxton. No word yet on when it'll drop, but we imagine it'll be around Glass's 75th birthday on Jan. 31, which the album is intended to honor. Coincidentally, equally legendary modernist composer Steve Reich turned 75 not too long ago. Both 75, both going strong. You heard it here first: 75 is the new 100.
