Beach House Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

Innovators of boring, Beach House make slow, unravelling dream pop that’s as good to listen to from underneath your duvet as it is on a long journey to another planet. Their one-two punch of organ synth and looped guitar, served up with a drum machine of varying pomp, has existed in homely, low-key environments and out in the widescreen world too -- just compare the tea-time pop of ‘Devotion’ with the massive and expansive ‘Bloom’. All their records sound the same, but also, they don’t?

Similar to Beach House:

Grizzly Bear, Yo La Tengo, Beach Fossils, Real Estate, Washed Out, Ariel Pink, Slowdive, Cults, Warpaint, Perfume Genius, Tennis, DIIV

Beach House
7

Beach House get to the stage in their career where they name the album after how many records they have released. So 7 is their 7th record and shows a bit of a creative rebirth for a band who never seem to stop. They had a more fluid way of working with this one which has taken them into new areas particularly as they were helpe...view item »

Beach House
Depression Cherry

If you didn’t like ‘Bloom’, that’s okay: I don’t think Beach House did either. The dreamer duo’s last record amped up their sound and stretched it out against a widescreen; where their combinative organ/guitar melodies used to melt into each-other, they now crashed under the weight of expectation and, um, ...view item »

Beach House
B-Sides and Rarities

A self-acknowledged serving of mediocrity from the most emotionally milquetoast band of all time? Don’t mind if I do. Few bands can make me want to cry as soon as I hear a song of theirs open, and boring old Beach House do it every time. This collection of discarded tunes is no less beautiful than usual, offering cut tunes that beam as bri...view item »

Beach House
Thank Your Lucky Stars

Robert Pollard, Prince, Buckethead… they’re all so fucking pissed right now. Beach House might just have undercut them in the runnings for quickest successive albums, detailing surprise record ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’ a meagre two months after ‘Depression Cherry’. It’s not release date alone, though, th...view item »

Beach House
Bloom

Hands up who didn't like the last Beach House album? Hmm, not many. It was an excellent affair where their brand of woozy melancholy took on unexpectedly strong melodies to create one of those career defining albums that they'll now have a problem living up to.What...view item »

Beach House
Teen Dream

This new Beach House album was a highlight of one of Clinton's recent lone missions into the office and he really wanted to review it but the promo CD went off to that ethereal parallel universe with the odd socks and Brian's house keys so it couldn't be done. I'll try to do justice to his love though I fear I might be doomed to failure 'cos it's a...view item »

Beach House
Devotion

Mingus would wish he was here to review the Beach House 'Devotion' CD. In his absence I'll give it a whirl... Okay this is sophisticated late night lounge pop that makes me think I'd get the best out of it wearing a polo neck in candle light with a fag in one of those big cigarette holders and a smoking jacket. The lads are comparing this dreamy or...view item »

Beach House

Beach House: "S/T" (Bella Union) Debut album from this duo who hail from Baltimore, USA. This immediately makes me thing of long hot summers, sitting on a porch, an allotment or some flowery garden elsewhere far from maddening crowd. My ideal beach house would probably be either be in Bahia, Brasil or St Anns, Jamaica, i'd while away ...view item »
