Beach House - Devotion

Story

“Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise. I said, “Listen, mate, life has surface noise.” - John Peel

That surface noise is one of the warm, fuzzy charms of analog recordings that aficionados, recording artists, and turntable enthusiasts alike treasure about vinyl — Tom Waits even went so far as to record sizzling bacon and add it to digital tracks to capture a semblance of the often-imitated-never-duplicated feel of vinyl. Whether it’s a warm summer night with the windows wide open or a chilly winter evening with the fire going, we love having a few friends over, serving up some drinks, and starting up the turntable with the sounds of our favorite records.

Why We Love Vinyl

  • Unique packaging produced just for vinyl, including the album cover, sleeve, inserts, and records
  • Superior lossless audio quality compared to digital formats
  • Interactive, engaged listening experience — from choosing the record from your bin to dropping the needle to flipping the record
  • Owning the physical copy of the music rather than a digital file, plus most vinyl comes with a digital download included for on-the-go listening

About this Record

Released 10 years ago on February 26, 2008, Devotion marks the point where Beach House found their sound. Singer Victoria Legrand and her musical partner, guitarist and keyboardist Alex Scally, have traveled far since then. Later albums, like 2015’s gorgeous Depression Cherry, have made them one of the most beloved indie acts of their generation. But this one stands alone as a moment of discovery. It felt then and feels now like a glimpse of a private world. A secret worth treasuring. - VMP
