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):
