An outgoing Beck Add to ...

Hayden's The Place Were We Lived isn't the only album Howie Beck produced this year. Beck's own How to Fall Down in Public , released in February, is a stylish disc that finds the Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist and songsmith in an outgoing musical mood, with the darkly lit introspections of his previous releases brightened some.

It's hardly exuberant, but a couple of tracks have a breezy "bop-bop, boppity-doo-bop" vibe, and that's not even counting La La La , which has pop star Feist lightly singing those words. There's a classy seventies thing at work, and the whole thing is wonderfully crafted, just so.
