Know Your Beach Bands

In the mid-’00s, we witnessed a torrent of new bands with “wolf” in their names. Among the acts with lupine roots were Wolf Parade, Wolfmother, We Are Wolves, Sea Wolf, Wolf & Cub, and more. It got old, as trends do, and we reached Canis lupus critical mass in 2009 with Wolf Gang. The gentler… More »

Watch Beach House Play A New Song In Montreal

Beach House have never taken more than two years between albums, but unless they drop some sudden surprise on us in the next two and a half months, they’ll break that streak this year. We’ve heard nothing about a follow-up to 2012’s Bloom, as welcome as one would be. But here’s a welcome indicator of… More »

Beach House – “Saturn Song”

Between the cosmic offerings from Spiritualized and Youth Lagoon, The Space Project is shaping out to be less a gimmicky novelty and more a genuinely good compilation of similarly themed songs. Next up is “Saturn Song” by Beach House, a sparse and ghostly track that’s no less beautiful than its counterparts. It’s a good song… More »

Watch Dan Rossen, Robin Pecknold, Hamilton Leithauser, And Victoria Legrand Cover Gene Clark In Brooklyn

The four-date indie rock all-star tour in tribute to Gene Clark’s 1974 album No Other made its final stop last night in at Brooklyn’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg. As advertised, Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold (still closely shorn!), the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, Beach House’s Victoria Legrand, and Fairport Convention’s Iain Matthews were… More »

Members Of Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Walkmen, Beach House To Cover Gene Clark On Tour

No Other, the 1974 solo album from the former Byrds member, is one of those cult-favorite albums that you’re probably never heard of unless you’re part of its cult. The densely orchestrated album pushed the studio excesses of early-’70s Cali folk rock to its natural conclusion, and all that ornamentation served to highlight Clark’s voice. More »

Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sister design duo behind the line Rodarte, and photographer Todd Cole have linked up for This Must Be The Only Fantasy, a short film soundtracked by Beach House. In the film, a disgruntled Dungeons & Dragons player (played by surfer/model Sidney Williams) liberates herself from the basement, only to have… More »

Way Out West 2013 Day 1: Beach House, Tame Impala, Junip, & More

The biggest piece of news from the first day of Gothenburg, Sweden’s Way Out West festival wasn’t who was there but who wasn’t. Neil Young & Crazy Horse, the band slated to headline the day, had to drop out at the last possible second, axing all their remaining European tour dates after guitarist Frank “Poncho”… More »

The 10 Best Beach House Songs

Baltimore’s Beach House are perhaps the most unlikely indie success story of the past few years. They play the game by their own rules, turning down high profile tour slots and TV advertisements, and often book small gigs not closely commensurate with their popularity. More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Friday’s 5 Best Things

Peel back the surface and look past the picturesque valley backdrop. Forget about the gorgeous, sun-kissed young folk wearing next to nothing (or, on occasion, nothing). Go ahead and ignore the ridiculous hippie art splattering the landscape. Once you get past everything that suggests Coachella is a legit wonderful place, reality sets in. You’re i… More »

Coachella 2013 Friday: Blur, Modest Mouse, Grinderman, & More

“It’s the homeland!” one of the girls on the hotel shuttle yelped as we neared the festival. It really begged the question — who is the most common Coachella archetype? The only data I have to cull from is my experience from last year’s first weekend, but the situation was vastly different. Then, I went… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Yesterday, Beach House and Phoenix both dropped mindbending, huge-budgeted videos at basically the exact same moment; as soon as I got done writing up one of them, I had to launch into the next one right away. So, big indie artists: Pace your shit out a little bit better! Don’t drown us in interesting music… More »

Beach House – “Wishes” Video (Dir. Eric Wareheim)

Eric Wareheim, one half of the absurdist comedy duo Tim & Eric, doesn’t direct music videos too often, but when he does, he can be relied upon to produce some grandly bizarre vision. That’s certainly the case with his video for Beach House’s majestic Bloom grower “Wishes.” It stars Ray Wise (Leland Palmer from TwinMore »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

A whole mess of great videos this week, from some unexpected places as well as the expected ones. When Flatbush Zombies release an excellently hallucinogenic rap video about dropping liquid acid in your orange juice and then hitting the bodega and showing off the skull in your gold fronts — usually my personal sweet spot… More »

Watch Beach House Forever Still Short Film

In making their short film Forever Still, the members of Beach House spent a night traveling to a bunch of different breathtaking locations in Texas to perform four different songs from their 2012 album Bloom. The 27-minute mini-movie looks absolutely gorgeous, with the band convincingly showing just how larger-than-life these songs are. Watch it below. More »

Beach House – “New Year” Home Video

It being a new year and all, beloved reverb-abusers Beach House have shared a video for “New Year,” a song from their 2012 album Bloom. It’s not a music video but a series of images from their recording sessions at Texas’s Sonic Ranch Studios, set to the song. Beach House, you will probably be unsurprised… More »

Hear Merry Indie X-Mas, Featuring Parodies Of Bon Iver, Beach House, xx, Das Racist, & More

When we posted the 10 Best Indie Christmas Songs we limited our list to yuletide jamz that actually exist. Animal New York took a different tack, imagining what holiday songs would sound like if they were covered by folks like Bon Iver, the xx, Wavves, Beach House, Das Racist, and others.

Beach House – “Wild” Video

Beach House’s new video for the dreamy Bloom song “Wild” tells a fractured, unhappy story about romantic violence and obsession, one that I’m not entirely sure I follow completely. It’s shot in a dank, realistic story, its narrative chopped up into isolated moments, most of which are not the happiest. This is an intense piece… More »

Beach House, Dustin Wong @ The Wiltern, Los Angeles 9/25/12

After launching their tour at the House Of Blues San Diego, Beach House weaved their way back to Los Angeles for a sold out two night stint at the Wiltern. Songs like “Wild” and “Lazuli” shimmered around the art deco theater radiantly accompanied by their twinkling light backdrop. Opener Dustin Wong displayed impressive looping guitar… More »
