Well we made it through the year, through another apocalypse, through another mud-slinging election and we are safely landing in the warm bosom of 2013, emerging anew. I'm not going to pretend I listened to everyone's favorite album this year, but after some reflection, 2012 was a pretty-fucking-good year. There was hardly a game-changer in the bunch with perhaps the exception of one rap wunderkind from Compton, but that doesn't make it my favorite record of the year. My list is dominated by guitar, call me old-fashioned, call me predictable (I might be)-I still find that the ancient [...]

Beach House na své poslední nahrávce Bloom staví další patro svého domu na pláži z ještě jemnějšího přediva než na předchozí, kritikou i posluchači velice opěvovanou, deskou Teen Dream . Za dobu své existence a především od minulého alba si vybudovali svůj specifický zvuk, který pro kapelu je velmi důležitý, aby nebyla zaměnitelná. To se jim podařilo už na předchozí desce. Na Bloom tento koncept dotahují téměř k dokonalosti. Ubírají sice na jisté hitovosti jednotlivých skladeb, o to více vybrušují strukturu skladeb. I když to není úplně přesné. Spíše bych měl hovořit o menší přístupnosti k [...]
Each track is an exploration into the aural world Beach House has painted for us, inviting us to take it all in and come visit for awhile.
by Bill Pearis Baltimore dream pop duo Beach House will play Bowery Ballroom on May 15 -- the same day they release their fourth album, Bloom . $30 tickets go on sale Friday, May 4 at noon (with an AmEx presale happening 24 hours earlier). The Bowery date, which Zomes is opening, will be the the last of a short East Coast tour (all dates are at the [...]
Indie darlings Beach House became the most talked about band back in 2010 with the release of Teen Dream. Now the time has come for their follow-up album, and the anticipation is already creating quite a buzz. Bloom is set to release May 15th, and from the sounds of it this Baltimore-based duo has picked [...]
Beach House have their newest single 'Lazuli' out now from the upcoming album Bloom. 'Lazuli' was also featured over the weekend as a Record Store Day only limited single. The lush sounds of Beach House continue to flow in this track and make the anticipation of Bloom seem that much more exciting.
I hope you managed to get through Record Store Day with your credit card balance under control and with no post purchase guilt! Some of you may have been lucky enough to pick up Beach House 's limited run (2,400) of 'Lazuli' on blue vinyl! The b-side is the ethereal track 'Equal Mind' which will not be on Beach House's upcoming LP 'Bloom' (due May 15 via Sub Pop ).

It’s happening again this year! Record Store Day 2012!! This will be my third year trying to get whatever “limited edition” records around. Like previous years I made a list of what records I wanted to get and what I bought . I understand some of the release will be available only in the UK and USA. The Ottawa music stores that are participating are: Compact Music CD Warehouse Birdman Sound [...]
It's finally Record Store Eve, everyone! The night in which, uh, Record Santa, throws records down a chimney - or something. While we can't promise you a visit from some made-up record-slinging fat man, we can promise you that we've got another batch of big tunes from heavy hitters including Beach House, The Walkmen, and Hot Chip. So, sit tight, take a listen to these ten tracks, and keep the anticipation going for tomorrow's big day. -Adam Kivel Senior Editor A.Dd+ - “When Paris Smokes” [...]
Can it really be a year when I spent a good 12 hours feverishly searching the racks of Rough Trade for the limited edition Big Star box set, in addition to myriad other vinyl delights, which were essential purchases on this most singular occasion? I have attended, financially supported, and been excited by all of the RSD’s these past three years, and Saturday will be no exception. However, I do find myself asking the question: who is this for? Originally, it seemed to be a day to put a spotlight on those treasured institutions the length [...]
Début mars, le duo Beach House lançait un premier single, Myth , dont nous avons fait écho. Un mois plus tard, Alex Scally et Victoria Legrand récidivent avec une autre pièce, Lazuli, en prévision de leur prochain album, Bloom, prévu pour le 15 mai sous le label Sub Pop . Musique et voix s’entassent dans le cerveau comme on remplit un plein pot de boules de ouate… C’est doux. Ici, la dream-pop baigne l’univers de Beach House : apaisant, angélique et ça vaut deux visites sur le sofa de la psy. Thérapie… à gogo? C’est selon… [...]

I did a post on this new song off Beach House 's upcoming album, Bloom , the other day, but the site that was streaming the song took it down shortly after I posted it. Now the band has officially released "Lazuli" on Youtube, so let's try this again. This song is number three on the upcoming album, and like anything else by them it is a beauty. It starts out with one of their trademark stuttering drum machine beats accompanied by a cheesy synth arpeggio, but then, with a cymbal wash, it opens up [...]
Following "Myth," Beach House has just released its second single from the forthcoming album Bloom . This is a strong single, and sounds like a bit of a progression for Beach House. It's a sleepy track with delicate keyboards, distant drums, and an ethereal vibe. Victoria LeGrand sounds especially carefree here, and with summer around the corner, this track arrives at the perfect time. / via /
Late Monday night Beach House tweeted an announcement of a new song for Record Store Day (btw it's this Saturday) entitled "Lazuli". Here it is in digital form. Beach House | [ Official Site ] [ Twitter ] The song will also be appearing on the band's new album Bloom , which is due out in less than a month's time. If you'd like to get yourself a limited-edition blue vinyl copy of "Lazuli" or something else really cool, [...]
This album is incredible . May 15th folks .
Are you ever walking leisurely alongside someone until they spontaneously start sprinting and tear ass up the street? Whether they left their oven on or they're trying to score Bieber tickets, that person just found a good reason to tap into some pure animal power, one of evolution's less backhanded gifts. I just did the digital equivalent of that trying to bring "Lazuli" to you. After "Myth," I was guardedly optimistic for Beach House's new album Bloom , out on May 15th via Sub Pop. Now I've gone full on banshee tween. Starting with an immaculate and precise, almost [...]
Uno de los lanzamientos más esperados para este 2012 es, sin duda, Bloom, el cuarto trabajo de estudio del dúo estadounidense Beach House . Luego de más dos años desde Teen Dream, uno de los mejores discos del 2010, la banda dio a conocer "Lazuli", el flamante nuevo single del álbum, cuyo lanzamiento se espera para el próximo 15 de mayo bajo el legendario sello Sub Pop. Otro lanzamiento que también esperamos con ansias es el séptimo disco de estudio del quinteto neoyorquino [...]
