mp3: new Beach House | "norway"

We've been in love with this song -- which Beach House penned on a train trip through the Norwegian mountains -- since we heard Victoria + Alex play a stripped-down version in an Oslo train station back in '08, and our love grew exponentially when we saw them play a stunning, more uptempo version of the song a handful of times at SXSW earlier this year. And yet, we still weren't quite prepared for this one, which is but one of a handful of instant classics on the group's near-perfect Sub Pop debut, Teen Dream (Ed Droste is right):

beach house :: norway

If the mp3 isn't high-res enough for you, grab the .wav file courtesy of the band (recommended):

beach house :: norway (41 mb)

Teen Dream is out January 26 on Sub Pop.

Dig Beach House, and thought "Devotion" was one of the best albums of '08, but do not see this song growing on me. Have not heard the album, but this song is not that good, comparatively.
