Beck – “Missing” [Remix by Hugo Nicolson] (mp3)

With the rare sunny weather we’ve been enjoying in Boston, I find myself turning to some of my standby summer albums when I’m out strolling around. Beck’s Guero is one of my all-time favorites, especially this remix of “Missing” by Hugo Nicolson (featured on the companion remix album Guerolito). I believe this track was only available on the digital version of the album and not included on any of the physical copies (bumped off the list in favor of Air’s (in my opinion) lesser remix of “Missing”) which is sad since it’s easily the best thing on the whole album. I love the way the simple, quirky backing beat showcases Beck’s often underappreciated crooning skills and reveals the sense of longing at the soul of the song.
