Beach House
Teen Dream
(Sub Pop)
Releasing: 26 January

From their self-titled debut LP to 2008’s tragic Devotion, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scully have kept traction in the music world with a very direct and conscious goal: simplicity. By following this, Legrand’s seraphim pipes and Scully’s stealthy reverb keep Beach House as mystifying as ever. Now, the bedroom pop duo has the chance to break out, like friends Grizzly Bear, with their Sub Pop debut Teen Dream.  A standout track on Teen Dream is “Norway”, showing Beach House’s more rhythmic side.

SONG LIST
01 Zebra
02 Silver Soul
03 Norway
04 Walk in the Park
05 Used to Be
07 Lover of Mine
08 Better Times
09 10 Mile Stereo
10 Real Love
11 Take Care

That gang of evil preppies from an ‘80s teen comedy put out a video for “Cousins” from next year’s Contra, which is sure to be either the pinnacle of human achievement or the scourge of the earth, and nothing in between.
