21 Days Until My Speakers Are Devoted to Beach House

Baltimore's own Beach House will release their second LP titled Devotion on February 26th. The album will be released on Carpark Records in the US and on Bella Union in Europe and Australia. The dreamy dream pop duo has released a sample track from the album titled "Gila", and can be found here at their website.

The forthcoming album has already gotten plenty of hype due to their previous highly acclaimed self titled LP, and many folks who have been lucky enough to preview the new record have similar praise.

Beach House begin a 2 month North American tour 2 days after the release of Devotion in their hometown at GSpot. The Papercuts, who put out a stellar folkish rockish album titled Can't Go Back last year, will open for them throughout the tour. The roadtrip conveniently ends in D.C. on April 4th at the Rock and Roll Hotel.

The band also promises music videos involving fishbowls, sand boxes, and lit plastic. Hopefully the lit plastic isn't as creepy as that old SoundGarden video with the burning Barbie. That would be weird.
