Black Cab Sessions are genius…and Beach House "Heart of Chambers" video

So…fancy yourself a Daytrotter fan? Well they’ve got nothing on these guys. Welcome to Thunderdome. The gauntlet has been laid, my dear friends.

The gist is this: grab your favorite indie artists, including Spoon, Daniel Johnston, Okkervil River the National, and Elvis Perkins…stick them in the back of a cab and have them play. Whilst driving around. Genius.

In other news…Beach House’s record release went swimmingly last night at the G-Spot. Check out their latest video, just released, for track “Heart of Chambers” after the jump.

Beach House has a new video!

Maybe not super-new now, since I feel like the last person in the e-world to break the news on this…but it should be done. So here it is…Baltimore’s own Beach House recently released the video for “You Came To Me,” a track off their upcoming LP, Devotion, out on Carpark Records.
