Beach House

So if you're not getting drunk and listening to Boys And Girls In America (and really, there is no reason you should be doing anything else at this juncture), but are in the mood for something a bit more moody and introspective, give Beach House a listen. The Baltimore male/female duo's new album is actually suprisingly unique, fusing brooding, layered Hammond organs, slide guitar and whispy vocals into something that just screams "soundtrack to autumn 2006." Think mellow Velvet Underground or Fiery Furnaces without the masterbatory freakouts. Some tracks tend to meld into one another, creating a big, forgetable lump, but there are a couple of superb songs on this record, "Apple Orchard" being the prime example.
