Mp3: Beach House, “Gila”

Post Author:

This song shares more than a passing resemblance to the songs on fellow Baltimore natives Celebration's recently released The Modern Tribe, but blame that on the powdery layer of organ that blankets the composition like two inches of snow. This is Beach House reemerging with a new album in the middle of February called Devotion (Car Park). The waves outside are deceptively soft, the wind is frigid and they're inside drinking wine at two in the afternoon; if there's no fireplace, there's at least some central heating.
