MP3 Beach House - “Gila”
posted by December 11 at 12:12 PMon
I never really got into Beach House back when everyone was raving about them last year. If they played a show in Seattle, I missed it. But today, I’m bumming out about losing my apartment (rent’s going up $350), I’m thinking about moving boxes in the post-Christmas, pre-New Year’s cold, and I’m pretty prone to this song’s icy melancholy. Also, there’s something faintly familiar about that opening melody—I’ve heard it somewhere, or else heard something like it somewhere, but it’s lost to me now. Anyway, it’s a good fit for today. Beach House’s new album, Devotion, is out 2/26/08 on Carpark.
