Baltimore’s Beach House is having quite the year. They just released their new album yesterday, and it’s a gem.+
Thank Your Lucky Stars was announced last week and dropped yesterday. Sure, it comes two months after their blissful Depression Cherry was released, but sonically and thematically it’s different. It’s moodier and a little darker, and where Depression Cherry feels airy and light. They are both appropriately seasonal: Stars fits with the autumnal period, a complement to Cherry‘s summerlike breeziness. It’s an embarrassment of riches any way you look at it for the fan- two albums worth of new music, very different, in a matter of months? Huzzah!
One Thing was performed on Stephen Colbert last night, and it gives you an idea of the soundscape of this album. Brooding and beautiful. Love.
I’ll throw the album version out there too.
