I recently discovered the band Beach House and their sophomore release Devotion. The duo of Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand produce dreamy, sparse pop tunes that are perfect for quiet, thoughtful evenings and sunny afternoons. This music reminds me of a lonely beach in New England (perhaps because the band hails from Maryland?), or a bunch of eclectic 20-somethings hanging out at a summer house drinking wine and talking literature.
Standout tracks are "Gila" and "Wedding Bell."
Also not to be missed, their first album, the self-titled Beach House.
