Recorded in upstate New York in a converted church, Teen Dream is the third album from the Baltimore-based duo Beach House. Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand first came together in 2005 when they charmed indie music enthusiasts across the blogosphere with their dreamy & languid lo-fi sound. The new album gives voice to a new, fuller universe of unbridled imagination. It features tracks that feel intimate while lushly orchestrated and irresistibly sprinkled with Legrand’s Nico-esque vocals. Teen Dream is one of those records that feels right both late at night, early on a Sunday morning, or keeping you company on a long road trip. Have a listen and let us know where you see yourself enjoying the tracks. Neat bonus: Both the CD and LP formats of Teen Dream come packaged with a companion DVD featuring a video for each song on the album, each by a different director.
