Beach House’s new song is my favorite Beach House song

Beach House’s new song is my favorite Beach House song

Beach House debuted a fantastic new tune over the weekend. I’m a moderate Beach House fan, but this one seems like it could be the one that tips me into rabid fandom. It’s got some meat to its bones without losing their etherial quality. Can’t wait for a studio version. Until then, here’s a live MP3.

Thanks to GvB for shining a light on this one. Captured Tracks has 500 copies of this on white vinyl — quite tempting despite my dwindling finances.

MP3: Widowspeak – Harsh Realm
Chalk “Harsh Realm” up among those contemporary tunes that feel like an unearthed vintage cool-as-hell track. You know — like something you’d hear as incidental music in a Tarantino film. Only “Harsh Realm” is slowed down 1.5x from what I’d say is normally the speed of this category. Use this to soundtrack your next windows-down cruise through town under the speed limit.

[MP3] M.I.A.: “Zig-Zag”

[MP3] M.I.A.: “Zig-Zag”

M.I.A. let loose this unused song from the /\/\/\Y/\ sessions. This one’s pretty all over the place, but it’s at least a bit more fun than the ones that made the cut for the LP. Really, she probably made the right choice by leaving it off the album but giving it to us anyway. Make your own decision, though:
