Albums of 2010 part 5 - Beach House "Teen Dream"

"Teen Dream" released way back in January is Beach House's third album to date and is their best. A band that have hit their stride and know their voices and instruments inside out. The duo open the album with the stunning "Zebra," with chord progressions and melodies that feel like sand in the wind. Dream pop at its best. Victoria Legrand's vocals on "Lover of Mine" has shades of Nico in parts. Her voice seems to have gone down an octave from previous albums, her husky, battered tones add to the charm and resonance of the record. This album will last beyond the year and decade a modern classic.
