BEACH HOUSE: New Album & Tour

Hopefully some of you checked out that great video I posted last week for "You Came To Me" (my favorite track off of their latest album, "Devotion"). I cannot recommend this album enough; subtly layered dream-pop with influences as varied as the melancholic Nico, 60's Motown, warm & sauntering country, and shoegaze. The various organ sounds elevate what we came to know from their debut even further into the hazy, reparative stratosphere where I want to drift around without abandon.

Beach House will be playing The Earl on 3/01 with Papercuts opening (also ICTH recommended!). Their new album "Devotion" comes out on February 26th via Carpark Records. You can pre-order both the CD and the 2xLP from Insound and receive a free Beach House poster.
