New Beach House

The latest offering from meloncholy, lo-fi Baltimore duo Beach House is a limited edition seven inch single featuring the new song “Used To Be.” I hear word that it "contemplates the spiritual and physical effects of life on the everchanging road, love and getting older," and the video is a spot-on visualization of that idea.

As down-trodden as this duo's approach comes across, it still manages to possess an endearing quality that will stick with you. I was introduced to them a few south-by's ago after hearing their debut album sometime in '06. If you're new to this, I'd recommend starting here. The b-side to the new single is a four-track demo version of “Apple Orchard,” one of the first things these two recorded together as Beach House. Get your copy here.
