Best Collaboration

City Paper

In interviews, many of the city’s musicians talk about how tight the scene is. And you know it’s not bullshit when you see them making guest appearances on each other’s records and touring together. There was no better evidence of that sense of community than the massive effort organized by the members of Beach House to cover the hidden-gem solo album of founding Byrds member Gene Clark. In addition to Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand of Beach House, the band was comprised of members of local acts Celebration, Lower Dens, and Wye Oak. They were also able to recruit nationally known vocalists Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, Hamilton Leithauser of the Walkmen, and Iain Matthews of Fairport Convention. Rather than play a bigger venue, this large group squeezed onto the stage of DIY warehouse space Floristree and graced the room with one of its most magical evenings.
