With Arctic ‘Mun-kays’ taking me over the edge, to almost liking Tranquillity Base, I thought I should opine on the album I’ve listened to most in the last two weeks, 7 by Beach House.
Despite the availability of new music, through the likes of Tidal and Spotify, I feel it has been a disappoi..
Beach House’s release of ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’ comes hot on the heels of the release, in August, of Depression Cherry. The obvious question to ask is are these tracks, that were recorded at the same time as Depression Cherry, offcuts, rejects or a glorious encore?
Being Beach House’s fifth album, Alex Scally and Victoria Lagrand clearly feel they have no need to make excuses for themselves or their music and I think this comes across in a more confident album that is simpler in construction and presentation.
