What a month it’s been for albums. It’s January, traditional dead time but we’ve already had beefy albums from Owen Pallett, Vampire Weekend, These New Puritans and Four Tet with the knowledge that great records from Yeasayer, Two Door Cinema Club, Gorillaz and Massive Attack to name a few are coming soon.
I guess we already know you can add Beach House’s Teen Dream to that list. Their third album is by far their best – an instantly enveloping, rich and beautifully woozy collection of songs with Victoria Legrand’s stunningly atmospheric vocals and it’s out today in Ireland (next week elsewhere) so this is your reminder (and mine) to get it. Vinyl please.
Gorilla Vs Bear debuted five music videos from the DVD album of Teen Dream this week and here’s the last video, directed by Legrand herself and one of my favourite tunes from the album – ‘Silver Soul’.
