A Gorgeous Mix of Slowdive with Mazzy Starr,
This review is from: Teen Dream (Audio CD)
I bought this on the same day as The Courage Of Others and for sheer listening pleasure (and in my humble opinion) the Beach House offering knocks the Midlake one out of the water.
It reminds me of the much maligned Slowdive releases from the early 90s, when ethereal guitars and "woozy" vocals were the rage, in the era known as "Shoegazing". If you recall them, and add some Mazzy Starrish vocals into the mix, you are about there. It is the sort of music you can put on and listen to, or allow to float on by in the background dipping in and out of at will. More contemporary comparisons are likely with the Fleet Foxes and Beach House deserve these comparisons.... Lovely.
A couple of albums to be investigated from the back catalogue me thinks!
