19. Beach House "Myth"
Producer: Chris Coady
Label: Sub Pop
"Myth" is everything you want from a Beach House single: heartbreaking, forlorn vocals and lyrics from Victoria Legrand that seem to exist somewhere between Alex Scally's vibrant guitar lines.
Like their previous work, there's nothing terribly difficult or heady about this cut. It's all about the way everything marries each other, particularly when Legrand belts out "Help me to make it" right before Scally melts your brain with a brief and lush solo. It's beauty in its most simplistic form. -AM
