Beach House

Between the cosmic offerings from Spiritualized and Youth Lagoon, The Space Project is shaping out to be less a gimmicky novelty and more a genuinely good compilation of similarly themed songs. Next up is “Saturn Song” by Beach House, a sparse and ghostly track that’s no less beautiful than its counterparts. It’s a good song and brings to mind the days of Beach House and Devotion, which previously seemed to have been long gone. Listen to it via NPR.

The Space Project is out 4/19, Record Store Day, via Lefse Records.

  1. Mildly disappointed with this. Kind of goes nowhere. I don’t see the comparison to BH/Devotion at all… :(

  2. I’m quite fond of it. I can definitely see the early days of Beach House in this, back when not all their songs needed a bridge.

  3. I really hope this is the direction they are headed. Much darker and really gives her vocals a chance to shine. Love it!
