Portland Cello Project

When: Mon., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2013

In this strange epoch, it is fitting that Beck—whose "Loser" touched off a major-label bidding war when it debuted on KCRW Santa Monica in 1993—has released his latest collection of songs not as a recording at all, but as a collection of sheet music called The Beck Hansen Song Reader.

Anyone can buy the Song Reader and play it, provided they know several skilled multi-instrumental musicians. One such group is the Portland Cello Project, which has released a recording of all 20 Song Reader tracks that is simultaneously the most modern and the most old-timey album I have heard all year.
