    Beach House "Lemonade" — Gucci Mane Cover

    What happens when two of the most cult-followed musical acts of their respective times and genres collide? Magic, that's what. During Coachella in 2010, the indie rock duo ventured a brief tribute to Gucci Mane by covering his "Lemonade" and the crowd—at least those with enough hip-hop knowledge to recognize what was happening—went crazy. Although this brief clip is only the chorus of song it makes sense that Victoria Legrand and Alex Scully would be drawn to it because the clamorous piano riff feels like what a Beach House song written in the '90s would sound like. When Scully recreates the riff on his electric guitar and the booming drums are added, the song assumes an eeriness that Gucci's version never conveyed.
