In my last post, I reviewed the 2023 Record Store Day EP, Become, by dream pop duo Beach House. Become is somewhat of a companion EP to their 2022 album Once Twice Melody. Today, I’m going to look back over the band’s career and rank the eight full-length albums they’ve given us so far.
Tag: Beach House
Beach House is a indie dream pop duo out of Baltimore. Formed by Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally in 2004, the band released their debut, self-titled LP in 2006 on Carpark Records. They signed to Sub Pop after releasing a second album on Carpark and have been with the famed Seattle label since.
The band found great success with their track “Space Song” off the 2015 LP Depression Cherry after it trended on TikTok on videos that emphasize dramatic irony. The track continued to grow in success after its placement in a scene in the hit Netflix show Wednesday in 2022.
Also in 2022, they released their eighth LP, Once Twice Melody.
Below, you’ll find a complete collection of album reviews, song reviews, features, music videos, lists, and more covered on FensePost that include Beach House.
Beach House | Become EP | Album Review
Record Store Day in April of 2023. It was announced that there was a new companion EP to Once Twice Melody, the 2022 LP by dream pop duo Beach House. It’s called the Become EP, and it was limited to — get this — JUST 8,000 copies on clear wax. Shell out $20-25 for five…
The Best Albums of 2022: Counting Down My Top 22 Records of the Year
It’s every record collector’s favorite time of year, and I’m not talking about holidays or gifts. I’m talking about the time of year where we all hole up and analyze all the new albums we checked out this year to compile our best of lists. I was going to do a top 5, but then…
Falling Man: A Mixtape for a Tumultuous Year
To say that 2018 has been somewhat of a tumultuous year would be an understatement. It’s been erratic and transformative for sure, filled with chaos and excitement and monumental, life changing catalysts. Upheaval, though, doesn’t have to be a bad thing. But even good, it requires periods of adjustment, rejuvenation, and contemplation–especially for a classic…
Fense is Getting Married! Love Song Night on KSVR
Yep, I’m getting married in a few days, so I figured it was time to put together a love-themed radio show. I tried to keep it centered around positive love songs, but with indie music, but a few oddities slipped in. In true form, I also made it my latest vinyl-only night.
Beach House: Wishes (Video)
Alright. Let me just say that this Beach House video is totally amazing. It features Ray Wise, best known for his role as Laura Palmer’s father Leland Palmer in David Lynch’s epic Twin Peaks series. “Wishes”, directed by Eric Wareheim, is equally as imaginative, other-worldly and surreal as Wise’s famed role.
The Best LPs of 2012 Countdown: 30 to 21
It’s day three of my top 50 countdown, meaning we’re in the middle and doing #30 down to #21. Par with how the previous two have gone, we begin with a pair of honorary mentions.
Fense’s Radio Show: June 1, 2012
Damn. The Bimmer done broke down. Once it warms up, it refuses to hold an idle. I did some research over at BMW 2002 FAQ and found that it could be one of a number of things: a faulty ignition coil, a fuel mixture issue, the carb needs tuning, the timing is off… the list…
Beach House: Myth (Song Review)
Teen Dream, Beach House‘s last LP, came in as my number 2 album of 2010. Within its cover are 10 songs, not a single one is weak. Beach House is back with Myth off their album Bloom and if this song is telltale for what we can expect, the new album could be a solid…
Fense’s Radio Show: March 9, 2012
I haven’t had much time of late to write. The house project of repainting walls, painting trim, pulling up carpets, and laying down bamboo has absolutely dominated my time. That and working on my BMW, which in the past few weeks has received a full tune-up (with exception of replacing points and cleaning the carb).
