New Beach House Single

August 7, 2008

Beach House will be releasing a 7″ single on October 21 via Carpark.  The A-side is a new song entitled “Used to Be” and the B-side will contain a demo of “Apple Orchard”, a song released on their self-titled album.  I love the album artwork, it suits their style so well.

They’re also touring at the moment.  After a few more gigs in the US they’re vacationing around the world to Australia and New Zealand (and also performing there too).  I bet they’ll be staying in a beach house (hah… hah… uhh).

Thanks Dublab for this excelent live video of Ariel Pink.  I’m loving the golden microphone.

Linkah! ->

The sequel to last year’s 77 Boadrum is coming (and I’m missing it, again).  Just yesterday the drummers of this 88 man full drum set drum circle were released.  You can find the list here.  There’s just one thing perplexing me; why is Brian Weitz, a.k.a. Geologist from Animal Collective, listed as a drummer?  Since when did he play the drums?  Hmm… sounds as incredible as it was last year, I’m wishing for 99 Boadrum.
