Beach House 'Devotion' 2xLP
2007 album, pressed on coloured vinyl with CD copy.
Feeling lonely tonight? Then turn off the TV and lower the lights, for Baltimore duo Beach House have returned with their sophomore full length entitled “Devotion”… Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand have written eleven delicate pop songs about love, feelings, and, of course, devotion. Their new album is a sure-fire antidote to the winter blues.
Beach House have developed their craft exponentially since their 2006 self-titled debut. The recording is crisper; the songs are fuller. This is a band that is taking the pop duo format to the limit. The organs, slide guitars and reverb are still there, but Beach House lay down some new sounds for their newest offering. While on their debut critics made comparisons to early ‘90s dream popsters like Mazzy Star, Slowdive and Galaxie 500, on “Devotion” listeners will also hear the band’s longtime admiration for ‘60s Motown and country folk.
