I was beyond pumped to discover that Baltimore dream pop duo Beach House released its fourth full-length album, Bloom, last month. Teen Dream was my favourite record of 2010 and pretty much defined my time in Paris. With Bloom, Victoria Legrand’s voice takes me back to my time abroad; dreamy, magical, addictive.
In support of their new material, Beach House will be performing at the Commodore Ballroom on Monday, October 1st. Tickets went on sale today, June 16th, via LiveNation. Don’t be stupid by missing out. The mysterious and beautiful Victoria rivals Karen O as the coolest girl in rock music today. Seeing her live will no doubt put me over the edge. I imagine the experience will be as profound and intense as seeing Warpaint live last year.
Michell Eloy of Paste Magazine describes Beach House’s latest offering.
Steady percussion; repetitive, almost hypnotic guitar; reverberated piano; sparkling synthesizers—they’re layered and arranged in a way that amplifies the band’s distinct sound.
To see what he means, watch Beach House with Jools Holland on the BBC Two.

The dreamy duo will also be performing shows at the Kool Haus in Toronto on October 13 and Astra Kulturhaus in Berlin on November 10.
