The first weekend of Coachella flew by, and there were lots of memorable moments. Hell, R. Kelly joined Phoenix onstage in a surprise moment of the festival.

[Watch] Beach House - "Wishes" (Official Video)

Beach House have gone quite far outside the box with their video for "Wishes", employing Ray Wise of Twin Peaks fame as the star and Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric as the director. Wise provides the soundtrack to a sporting event that cannot be described without words like "ridiculous" and "baffling", but needless to say it culminates in him riding a white stallion. It's confusing as hell, yet absolutely amazing. Pressing play is all that needs to be done.

[Watch] Beach House's Short Film 'Forever Still'

Early last month Beach House released their video for "New Year", which was comprised of footage from the band's time in Tornillo, Texas, where they recorded last year's Bloom. But, the band didn't stop there. During their recording sessions at the Texas studio they compiled loads of beautiful footage, and now it comes together in the short film Forever Still. The 26-minute clip spans a full day, from dusk till dawn, with the band performing in the serene panoramas of the Texas desert. Here's what Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally had to say about it:

We performed/recorded four songs from Bloom outdoors, in various locations that are special for us around El Paso and Tornillo, Texas. The film follows the passing of one night, starting at sunset and ending at dawn."

[News] Governors Ball 2013 Announces Full Lineup, and It's Awesome

The Governors Ball Music Festival, which takes place every June on Randall's Island in NYC, has announced the lineup for the 2013 festival, and it's absolutely awesome. With headliners like Kanye West and Kings of Leon, the lineup goes from "meh" to "holy crap" very quickly. Continuing the awesomeness are Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, The xx, Cut Copy, Animal Collective, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Bloc Party, Local Natives, Crystal Castles, Dirty Projectors, Holy Ghost!, Death From Above 1979, Japandroids, and so many more. Of note, there's one name that is blacked out, which we're assuming will serve as a big announcement in the future.

Tickets for the three-day festival go on sale this Friday, January 25th. Below, you can watch the announcement video for the festival.

[Watch] Beach House - "New Year" (Video)

Beach House begin their new year reminiscing about moments and memories that defined their 2012, and what better way to do it than pair those visuals with the aptly titled "New Year"? Using footage compiled during their Bloom recording sessions at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas, the band paints a picture full of heartfelt memories. As they explain:

It’s more of a home video thing, not a music video…….we just thought these moments and the memories they involve fit this song."

Check out the video above.

[Watch] Beach House - "Wild" (Official Video)

Beach House have never been ones to force anything in your face, instead they take the subtle approach, occasionally blowing our minds with something amazing. They did it earlier this year with Bloom, their fourth LP that should not be overlooked, and now they've done it again with the video for "Wild". The visuals take note from the plot of Trainspotting, focusing on a group of vagrants in a dingy New York apartment as they cope with the effects of drug addiction. Watch the clip above.

[Watch] Beach House - "Wild" x "Wishes" Live on Fallon

So we've already enjoyed The xx making their first TV performance in a while earlier in the shape of "Angels". Now you can enjoy what happened elsewhere on the late night circuit. On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to be more precise. Beach House performed not one but two tracks from their recent album, Bloom. Up at the top of the page you can watch "Wild" while after the jump you can enjoy "Wishes". 

[Watch] Beach House - "Lazuli" (Official Video)

In the new visuals for Beach House's "Lazuli," the second single from their fantastic LP Bloom, we see three rather unlucky individuals experiencing witnessing to strange supernatural occurences. Check out the Allen Cordell-directed clip above.

As well, the Baltimore oufit are further supporting Bloom with a recently announced North American tour, which will take them (literally) all across North America from July through till October (newly added dates in italics). From there, the band is headed off to Europe to perform from October 26th to November 19th. Check out their full tour schedule after the jump.
