Selection Reminder: Beach House tomorrow at the Beacham!
Wednesday, May 9 â€“ Beach House
46 N. Orange Ave.
The day we meet someone who was conceived to dream-pop duo Beach Houseâ€™s 2010 album Teen Dream, is the day weâ€™ll officially feel old. Unlike Katy Perryâ€™s Teenage Dream album of the same year â€“Â a record-breaking outing that has likely resulted in way more babies than Beach House vocalist Victoria Legend or guitarist Alex Scally could compete with â€“Â Teen contained an underpinning of yearning for authentic human connection that made it a contender for the most romantic album of the decade. Despite its droning ambience, itâ€™s hardly soporific; subtle, murky hooks propel the albumâ€™s 10 lush soundscapes. While mainstream Americans might be dreaming of drunken Friday-night revelry, Beach House presents an intoxicating, anachronistic vision that eradicates the notion that pop canâ€™t be sensuous without being sexual. â€“ Allie Conti
