20. Beach House - Gila (2008)

Everything Beach House does is slow. From the dreamy, stretched out vocals of Victoria Legrand, to the languid, drugged out instrumental sections created by Alex Scally, the band is never in a hurry to get their point across. Every word Legrand sings, especially on this song with the word "Gila", seems to be about 10 syllables long and last about 10 seconds. This is some of the best cold, rainy day music there is, as the quiet and reflective songs just fit the mood perfectly. The band has released two albums thus far, and Legrand was featured on Grizzly Bear's great song "Two Weeks" from earlier this year, as well as featuring on another Grizzly Bear song for the New Moon soundtrack. Everything they've done is highly recommended.
