Beach House - "Some Things Last a Long Time" (Daniel Johnston cover)

Baltimore dream weavers Beach House have a new album arriving early next year, and in true touring band fashion they have been debuting new songs at their recent shows. I heard a couple new tunes myself not too long ago, but what I didn't get was a cover of Daniel Johnston's "Some Things Last a Long Time", which the band has included on Devotion, the album in question. Here they are seen playing the Johnston classic at a show in Columbus. But they're not the only one fixated with Johnston - folk troubadour M. Ward included his take on Johnston's "To Go Home" on last year's quite wonderful Post-War. As the two groups have proven, it's pretty difficult to screw up these timeless tunes. (Via Forcast)
