Sam Bekt

New Sam Bekt LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sam Becht, operating under the pseudonym Sam Bekt, offers up stylish, homespun, pop melancholia on their album Selfie. A reflection on our culture of burnout and tech malaise, the LP combines field recordings and samples into songs that play cheerful despite taking on darker topics like social media validation and post-grad listlessness. The tracks touch on many genres without landing in one particular spot, giving Becht plenty of room to flex their producer chops. Tracks like “Switzerland” and “Sign Off” display an impressive range in style when put side by side, never deviating from offering a clean and full sound. You can take Selfie for a spin below. - Josh Kelly
