Beck joins Childish Gambino on “Silk Pillow” - true! Over drums and keys Beck rekindles his youth, prioritizing rhymes over sense a la his Mellow Gold-era, bragging in some heady way - “wonder why you can’t turn traumas into nirvanas.” Meanwhile, Childish Gambino verifies that he’s still a “young buck,” that he used “to fuck with your cousin,” and apparently both he and Beck enjoy discussing anacondas. This is certainly a bit strange, but the heavy loops and crushing electro outro make this a solid though intriguing track overall, and the delightful lack of a chorus strengthen’s this hip-hop odd couple’s musical statement.  Stronger with every listen:
