RIYL: Lower Dens, Grizzly Bear, Cocteau Twins

Label: Sub Pop / Bella Union

When you’ve released as many near-flawless albums as Beach House has over the last decade, you’re bound to accumulate a hefty pile of material on the cutting room floor.  The Baltimore dream pop duo explains that these tracks never found a home on their full-lengths because they didn’t quite feel as cohesive to the whole, not because they were lesser quality.  So, consider this a collection of equally fantastic individual tracks with their own vibes and perspectives.

Sub Pop has a bunch of clear vinyl ‘Loser Edition’ copies up for preorder now, and while there is no indication of the quantity pressed, Beach House product will inevitably sell out quicker than you think.  Check out the sublime album opener Chariot below.

The Details

All customers who pre-order the LP version of B-Sides and Rarities will receive the album on Loser Edition clear vinyl while supplies last (available until you read right here that it’s no longer in stock!).
Customers will be given access to stream the full album on June 16th, two (2) weeks before release date, from your SubPop.com account with a pre-order of the album on any format.
All pre-orders will also receive any and all pre-release track downloads in advance of the album release as they are made public, which will be available from your SubPop.com account as they become available.
All physical pre-order items should ship out from our warehouse in Seattle, WA between 5-8 days before release date, so long as their are no delays in manufacturing that would delay this advance shipping timeline.
International orders may not arrive by release day as extra time must be taken into consideration for distance traveled and customs department clearance.

Price $19
