BEACH HOUSE – MYTH (Indie/DreamPop – US)

Beach House

After weeks of rumours and wild conjectures, Baltimore duo Beach House are finally sharing a first taste of their fourth studio album, Bloom, due for release on May 11th via Mistletone Records/Inertia. Expectations are pretty high for this new LP, especially after the success of the duo’s 2010 album, Teen Dream, which spawned a few memorable singles and remixes.

Beach House’s new single “Myth” was recorded in late 2011 at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX and mixed at Electric Lady in NYC. The song’s spiraling guitars and gentle drums provide a velvet lining for Victoria’s warm vocals.

The album that will follow in May was largely designed on the road, during two years of tour. Throughout this period, melodies, chords, rhythms, words, and textures surfaced in moments of their own choosing. These spontaneous ideas were later gathered and developed in Baltimore, with Chris Coady as co-producer.

BEACH HOUSE – REMIXES (Alternative/Indie – US)

Beach House

Hailing from Baltimore, Beach House is Victoria Legrand (vocals, organ) and Alex Scally (guitar, keyboards), who are joined by Daniel J Franz and Graham when performing on stage.

Since its formation in 2005, the duo has released three albums: Beach House (2006), Devotion (2008) and Teen Dream (2010). Blending Victoria Legrand’s delicate vocals with an expansive dream pop sound, Teen Dream has been hailed as one of the best albums of 2010. Very carefully and thoughtfully put together, Beach House’s songs are dream pop at its best. Their slow-paced melodies and eerie vocals combine to create vivid magical soundscapes.

No wonder this music has  been a source of inspiration for many DJs and producers who have released  incredible remixes that enhance the best qualities of Beach House’s original songs… umstrum||music has selected some of the most noteworthy remixes and you can find them just below:

Their music is often described as dream pop, mainly due to their slow-paced organ-filled melodies and the eerie warmth of Victoria’s voice. On Teen Dream Victoria and Alex seem more confident than ever and the album is clearly the best they’ve done so far. Very carefully put together, it sounds more accessible than their previous work but still just as magical. So much so that it has actually inspired some DJs, such as Californian DJ Martin Vidal, to produce some remixes that are not bad at all either…
