DOWNLOAD: Beach House - Norway (MP3)

Teen Dream

Everyone's already raving about the new Beach House album. Sub Pop will release Teen Dream on January 26th. The song "Norway" from that album a free download. You can grab it above above the barely-visible cover art. Tracklist below. For this album, the band,

"marched further into isolation, deciding to bottle up all those wild visions away from home. They packed up their lives and settled into a converted church in upstate New York with producer Chris Coady. For a month they continued the birthing process, sweating and pushing out sounds inside a cocoon of their very own weaving. "It wasn't about arriving at a church and it revolutionizing a feeling," Scally notes. "It was a continuation of what we were doing without disruption. Whenever something good happens, we look at each other and we know that was it. It's instinctual and it's private." Through the course of a month, they chased down songs and dark rushes, the creative telepathy that Scally and Legrand share together taking a strangely physical hold. "There's a different level of intimacy, a physicality on Teen Dream," Legrand explains, pacing back and forth. "Rhythmically, there's new motion. This record touches you. On your chest."
Beach House play a few days in Spain this week and then return to Europe for more touring in February and March. A North American tour hasn't been announced yet, but they will return to to NYC to headline Webster Hall on May 6th. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday followed by general sale Friday.

that song up there sucks. Since when did shitty New Age get mistaken for hip, indie music?

I'm glad that the album art is barely visible. It makes the shit stain I leave when I wipe my ass with this record more profound.

Anyone who's actually interested in hearing this album already has it 2 months before its retail release.

Yeah, I'm going to have to call this one of the best albums of all-time along with Veckatimest, Yellow House, Bitte Orca and Radiohead. It's kind of boring but sooooo great

So glad "Used to Be" is on this, thought it might just be a single when it came out a few months ago.

I hope you are kidding when say Bitte Orca is one of the best albums of all time.

I'm a teen who dreams of all days long.

I like this record but there's one track that makes me worry that they are gonna become the Adult Contemporary darlings of 2010 FM/Satellite/Starbucks douchery.

Chixxx > Beach House

Posted by anonymous | December 8, 2009 12:33 PM

i agree with 12:03 and pray 12:33 is wrong but could see that happening. Teen Dreams will be one of the top albums of 2010 in my book, new songs are on a whole 'nother level for them. the new tunes are so great live

Posted by bQ | December 8, 2009 1:08 PM

I like them a lot but...tickets for a May 2010 show are on sale tomorrow!?? Beach House and Pavement are way too optimistic about the ability to buy food staples in 2010, aka The Greatest Depression.

12:33 who is Chixxx?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 4:06 PM

Gene Shalit (If Gay) is def the best chixxx track
