Beat Connection – The Palace Garden, 4am
This month sees the release of new material from Seattle’s Beat Connection, with their debut LP, The Palace Garden. The first single The Palace Garden, 4am, is a heavenly piece of melodic electronica that will make you want to stay up all night, smiling at everyone and anything. Despite there being a current flux of bands like this – think Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi, Washed Out etc – Beat Connection still manage to sound fresh and exciting. Good stuff.
Their track Silver Screen, is one of my favourites of last year. Imagine my delight when I discovered this delicious little remix last week, which had managed to pass me by.
