MP3: Disco Volante - Lover of Mine (Right-Click-Save-As)

Whenever I see Beach House vocalist/keyboardist Victoria Legrand perform , I just can't get over the contrast between her well-scrubbed, babyfaced looks and the smokey, bourbon-soaked vocals that spill out of her. It's a nice surprise. Togetho\er with bandmate, Alex Scally, this Baltimore duo form the core of Beach House, a band whose moody, etheric sound evokes both 1970's AM-Gold and today's cutting edge psychedelia. 'Lover of Mine', a track off their fantastic new record Teen Dream, has a timeless, dream-like quality, as soothing as it is challenging, and it's the first song on today's playlist...
