Beach House :: "White Moon"

Nostalgia for something you never knew enough to miss, or maybe nostalgia for something you wished you known well enough to hurt over, Beach House moved into hearts in the last 12-months with a combination of wistful melodies and peeling keys. "White Moon," either a b-side from one of 2010's best albums, Teen Dream, or the down payment on the next one, changes little in the aesthetic, yet offering the haymaker lyric, "do you want me to want to?" in the opening minute. Nearly baroque, the arrangement quietly marches forward like a delicate plow horse in the dream of some rococo dandy. Not that you know what that's like, but you imagine you might already miss it anyhow.

The Beach House Live iTunes Session is out now.
