Words can't do this album justice. It has to be heard to be believed: if you want gorgeous melodies, hooks that stick in your mind, songs that will be in your head when you wake in the morning, then go out and buy this. After the initial 'what is this?' of the slowish and string-laden opening track, the introduction to 'A Good Man Is Easy To Kill' will knock you sideways....and it just gets better. All the usual Beulah influences are in there (Beach Boys, Beatles, maybe even a hint of Pavement) with a few more thrown in for good measure (mid-period Steely Dan on 'Hey Brother'?), and if there's been a better two and a half minutes of perfect music than 'Silver Lining' released this year, I've yet to hear it. These guys are the business: they should be massive, but for now they are a hidden treasure waiting to be unearthed. Buy this album and do your ears a favour

On their previous album, 'When Your Heartstrings Break', Beulah crafted eleven wonderful songs, full of energy, sunshine and sugar - with irresistable melodies and incredible arrangements. Their latest offering has all of the same and more. The difference this time round is depth - the tunes aren't just wonderful tunes, they go further - and aren't just completely happy. There is pain ('A Good Man Is Easy To Kill'), forbidden love ('Popular Mechanics For Lovers') as well as the classic upbeat tracks Beulah does so well. What sets them apart from bands like Neutral Milk Hotel though is their ability not to be weighed down by pessimistic emotions, but to shine through with a permanent silver lining.
'The Coast Is Never Clear' is stick-in-your-head catchy, but not annoyingly so; emotional, but not cloying; complex yet beautifully accessible, and all this wrapped up in a delightful mix of chamber pop, indie rock and pop with just a hint of country, folk and modern rock.
Once you hear this, nothing else will ever be quite the same.

This is a coast that should definitely be sailed down. Elephant 6 band Beulah is in fine form in their third album "Coast is Never Clear," exploring new turf while never straying too far from their polished pop sound. It's catchy, fun, but still rich and textured and insanely catchy.
It kicks off with the rich "Hello Resolven," before heading into a buzzing, harder guitar riff that is joined by bells, chants, and a tambourine in the musically upbeat, lyrically downbeat "A Good Man is Hard To Kill." A more rock-oriented sensibility enters with the solid "Gene Autrey" and vaguely punky "Silver Lining."
A somewhat more mellow sound enters with songs like "Waiting For Sunset," a surprisingly gentle song with a warm brass intro, or the cute, lulling pop of "Burned By the Sun." But the catchiness is never far away with songs like the bouncy, percussion-laden "Gravity's Bringing Us Down." It ends on a pensive note with the insecure, horn-led "Night is the Day Turned Inside Out."
Imagine the Beach Boys on tranquilizers, meditating on the sunset with an orchestra behind them. That's what Beulah sounds like. Music much like Beulah's is what gives indie-pop its reputation -- well orchestrated, well-written, and indescribably compelling.
One of the best things about Beulah is their instrumentation -- typical indie rock is spiced up with bells, trumpets, tambourines, chimes, strings, and other things that add a warmer tone to the music. The instrumentation slips in and out effortlessly, leaving off and picking up, and slipping together in a seamless weave. It's almost impossible to keep track of it all.
