EDITORS’ NOTES

Swapping producer Chris Coady for Spaceman 3's Pete "Sonic Boom" Kember, Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand fully embrace their bliss on 7, their haziest, dreamiest album yet. They move seamlessly from meditative to trippy, adopting swelling, stately, Spector-swilling-martinis-with-Eno arrangements on "Last Ride" and entering a reverb-drenched citadel of synths on "L'Inconnue.” Seeming more unabashedly themselves than ever, this is the sound of Beach House doubling down on the aqueous dream-pop perfection that made them indie heroes in the first place.
