Initially this seemed like the worst idea in the world. Beach House make delicate music and Little Girls make music that sounds like a dude screaming into a box in a damp basement. Both have their merits, but they probably shouldn't ever actually meet. Except this cover of Beach House's "10 Mile Stereo" starts to make a lot of sense. While it's played probably a little too straight at the beginning (Beach House's twinkling guitar taps mixed with heavily reverbed dude vocals aren't exactly a recipe for success), it quickly turns into a Jesus & Mary Chain approximation—every instrument blends together into a warm hum, and suddenly Beach House's original feels worlds away.
