The faces Beck presents through his music are as different as Mellow Gold from Midnite Vultures – albums in which the recording artist gives personal license to define alternative rock before taking it where it’s never been. So when his 12th studio album was released earlier this year, the comparisons of Morning Phase to 2002’s atmospheric Sea Change rushed across the web along with praise for a return to elegant strummers with simmering lyrics. For many of us, however, Beck will always be at his best when indulging all his musical sides, and the anthemic drone of 1994’s “Loser” is as audacious as the day it was released. Beck returns to Tulsa to play the Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St., on Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. It will be his first concert in T-Town since his 2008 show at Cain’s Ballroom. Tickets are $49.50-$59.50 at
