9 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Baltimore duo's second album of 2015 is even moodier than its first, with exquisite layers of ringing guitar, funereal organs, and wobbly keyboards that seem transmitted from another dimension. "Majorette" and "Common Girl" are built upon Alex Scally's silky, arpeggiating lines, while "One Thing" grooves with quivering fuzz reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine. Victoria Legrand's vocals glide with the grace of a wraith guiding you to the light; "Let us find elation," she offers, over the enchanting slow-dance sway of "Somewhere Tonight."

BEACH HOUSE!!!

floating on a cloud

I have to say, after years of listening to beach house and absorbing their signature sound it is really refreshing to hear them go in a bit of a different direction. Depression Cherry and thank your lucky stars are an ethereal masterpiece. Anyone that grew up listening to shoegaze, the cocteau twins, slowdive,air , etc,, can surely appreciate these paticular soundscapes on these two last albums. Victoria still amazes me with her astonishing versatile voice. From a husky smooth croon to a soft angelic coo, this woman is spot on and has one of the most amazing voices in the world of this genre of music. Seeing them live is a revelation and is not to be missed. Perfection is the word i would use to describe this beautiful band. A truely pleasure to the senses.

Better than Depression Cherry

I have been a fan of them since "Teen Dream". I put on Depression Cherry and thought their best days might be behind them. Boy was I wrong.

What I like the most about this album is the choruses. They swirl and surprise you ( I imagine they could be switching keys). The result is music that moves you emotionally. This is some of Beach Houses best music.
