12 Songs, 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Beach House’s majesty reaches full flower on Teen Dream, the band’s third album. Fusing the layered sound of ’90s shoegaze, the passions of ’50s doo-wop, Rolling Stones-style ballads, and just a touch of lullaby, the Baltimore duo forge a style that’s beautiful but tough, mysterious but open. Against the LP’s soft-focus songs, Victoria Legrand’s voice sounds warm and husky. The overall effect is hypnotic, making for a collection that (ever so gently) demands repeated listens.
