Beck Hansen remains a figure of few pretensions. Somewhat closer to J.D. Salinger’s Holden Caulfield than a caricature of music’s greatest eclectic, and with a career closing in on three decades, his two most recent albums, Morning Phase and Colors, have seen him ride another career high. It’s a new trajectory. To many, it suggests the Los Angeles native has been recast from a rebel to a figure embracing the pop archetypes he’s long satirised, but this would be misleading.
