Song Snack of the Day: “Walk in the Park”
Today I’m recommending a track from indie duo Beach House, whose third record, Teen Dream, lauded high reviews across the board and finished in many “Tops for 2010” lists this last month.
The fourth track on this wonderfully crafted album, “Walk in the Park,” is potentially their wittiest arrangement yet. A haunting, yet bouncy organ hook provide an ample echo to singer Victoria Legrand’s smoky vocals. Guitarist Alex Scally selects an absolutely ideal tone for his guitar, which playfully swoons with Legrand’s work on the keys.
I highly recommend Teen Dream, which to me, genuinely captures the environment of its production. Recorded in a converted church in upstate New York, this record characterizes the inviting essence of lonely Northeastern towns.
Snack on that.
