Beach House - Teen Dream

I remember buying the first Beach House from Piccadilly Records after reading one of their descriptions on the front of the CD in store:

Take a vacation at the Beach House away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Let the Baltimore duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally take you to a new place, a unique place where slow hazy pop fills the room with organs, slide guitars, reverb, echoes and simple yet unforgettable melodies. Beach House contains memories from past trips, times, and places: 70s Southern California (lunch with Karen Carpenter), mid 90s England (star-gazing with Mazzy Star no doubt), a weekend at Warhol's Factory in New York (shared a cab with Nico) and a camping trip in the Appalachians back in 1940 (with a country breakfast at Patsy's).

How could I not like it?! Their second album was equally as brilliant and they're set to release their 3rd album 'Teen Dream' on 25th January.
