Conclusion: Already at the first stages of my obsession over this band, I can safely say that I place their newest album Beach House up there beside my love for The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. According to the numerous articles and reviews I've read about them, this is the kind of band that mainly focuses on Tone and Sound. With this in mind, it's easy to see how much work was put into their album Teen Dreams, with the amount of intricacy beyond the vocals. They (Alex + Victoria) are both said to be very particular with what they like, so it's interesting to see the product of two perfectionists with different but obviously similar desires, finding and perfecting such a beautifully put album. Thank you Beach House, I need to see you guys live!

  1. I saw Beach House live twice in 2010. They are breathtaking. I would put Teen Dream as my favorite album of 2010, hands down. It also helps that I'm madly in love with Victoria Legrand.
