With summer fading into the rear-view mirror and winter fast approaching, keeping a stack of good music on-hand seems like a wise plan.
One consistently creative band whose music should be in your library?
Baltimore-based Beach House. Their tasteful indie-rock arrangements are a unique brand of dream-pop that satisfies on many levels.
“Space Song” and “Wildflower” for example – both from their 2015 “Depression Cherry” release – are uplifting pop dreamscapes that still captivate.
And “Myth,” from their 2012 “Bloom,” is sheer sonic perfection that endures.
Based in Baltimore Maryland, Beach House are musical duo Victoria Legrand, vocals and keyboards, and Alex Scally, guitars, keyboards and backup vocals.
Beach House have released seven studio albums since their 2006 inception. No strangers to Portland, the talented musicians (and lifelong friends) played at Keller Auditorium in August.
Over the years their live performances have included Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Kimmel, the Coachella Festival, SXSW and Glastonbury.
New “7” on our playlist
Beach House’s exceptional “Lemon Glow” from their newest Sub Pop Records “7” release has been on PRP’s playlist this summer.
We’re also wild about “Lose Your Smile,” also from the new album. A reflective, sumptuous track, we think you’ll love both its artistic arrangement and compelling delivery.
Have a listen:
Lose Your Smile
Other new album capstones?
Both sonorous “Girl of the Year” and hypnotic closer “Last Ride” (boasting a lovely piano intro) are additional tracks you won’t want to miss.
