What's Almost as Good as The Wire & Also From Baltimore? Beach House!


Okay, so for some reason everyone's posting Norway from Beach House's as of yet to be released Teen Dream album. Either the reason is that that's what Sub Pop is dictating to be the next single or just because 10/10 bloggers prefer that specific more uptempo track to any of the other 9 songs on the album. Of course, all bloggers are either milquetoasts or windbag contrarians (this one included!) and often they're wrong - as they are now. Walk In the Park is a better song... And it's the 21st century, what does a single for an indie band mean except that that's the song the label wants played on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic so Alex Patsavas can license it for whatever movie/tv show she's working on?

Great blog! And thank you SO MUCH for posting another song from that album. I kinda can't stand Norway, even though I love Beach House. It made me feel like their style was changing in a way that I DID NOT like. Glad to see this is not yet the case!

Thanks for the kind words, and yeah, I was kind of confused that Sub-Pop was leading with Norway as the single...
