Silky dream pop duo Beach House combine subliminal guitar melodies with flickering programmed drums into closely knotted pop songs that wrap up around the listener. Teen Dream is a high watermark of their career, a quietly massive record that feels at once widescreen and whispered.

8/10 Brett 22 January 2010
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 bit less my thing. Having said that, I was mighty impressed by 'Norway', the first single off the album, with its marriage of woozy shoegaze synth drones and yearning, emotive indie that falls somewhere between the poles of the 'rock' and 'pop' varieties. That one's still the standout to me but perhaps it's merely the most immediate and further listening will bring out the treasures hidden amongst the others? The more balladeering tracks certainly have that 'slow burner' feel. In all, Teen Dream gives the impression of a band completely at ease with themselves, doing what they do with an assured lightness of touch. The title sounds pretty apt to me as I think this really is music for dreamers. The CD comes in a foldy gatefold job with a bonus DVD and the LP I know nothing about 'cos it's not here yet.

The promo is in that box over there, I saw it the other day. You're all stupid. I didn't think Clint had eaten it really, he's vegetarian & CDrs are made from beef rennet & glass with a bit of crushed baby seal powder. Bet you didn't know that. And did you know. Beach House ARE A MAN?
