Wednesday, May 9 – Beach House
46 N. Orange Ave.
The day we meet someone who was conceived to dream-pop duo Beach House’s 2010 album Teen Dream, is the day we’ll officially feel old. Unlike Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream album of the same year – a record-breaking outing that has likely resulted in way more babies than Beach House vocalist Victoria Legend or guitarist Alex Scally could compete with – Teen contained an underpinning of yearning for authentic human connection that made it a contender for the most romantic album of the decade. Despite its droning ambience, it’s hardly soporific; subtle, murky hooks propel the album’s 10 lush soundscapes. While mainstream Americans might be dreaming of drunken Friday-night revelry, Beach House presents an intoxicating, anachronistic vision that eradicates the notion that pop can’t be sensuous without being sexual. – Allie Conti
