I was talking to a friend a few days ago, and they posed a great question. What are the top albums released in 2023 so far? As we just hit the midpoint of 2023, it’s the perfect time to take a quick look back over the past 6 months and make a list. These are, essentially, my top 10 albums of 2023 so far. As always, I am focusing the list on items I have added to my collection.Read More »The Top 10 Best Indie Albums of 2023 (So Far)
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.
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.Read More »Discography Ranked: Beach House Albums (2006-2023)
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 songs, and you could own a “rare” copy of this!Read More »Beach House | Become EP | Album Review

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.Read More »Fense is Getting Married! Love Song Night on KSVR
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.Read More »Beach House: Wishes (Video)

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 goes on. So yesterday I took it to the shop to get a once-over. Hopefully the damage to my pocketbook won’t be too extensive. Read More »Fense’s Radio Show: June 1, 2012

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 contender for 2012.Read More »Beach House: Myth (Song Review)
