Beach House’s Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally return to the spotlight with Depression Cherry, the striking follow up to 2012’s breathtaking Bloom. On Depression Cherry, Beach House continue to explore their expansive sound, delivering songs that feel as crisp and cool as the arrival of fall. I expect to curl up with it all season long.
Depression Cherry reflects Beach House’s relationship with time: “For us, Depression Cherry is a color, a place, a feeling, an energy… that describes the place you arrive as you move through the endlessly varied trips of existence…”
With the passing of summer comes the beginning of new yet familiar trips. Most notably, the start of school and professionally, the final quarter and the crunch before the end of the year.
In the spirit of the season, I’ve created a back-to-school playlist. Titled After-School Sounds, the playlist provides motivation and reverie for the after-school haze of homework and extracurricular activities.
Additionally, Sound Dessert is giving away a Beach House Depression Cherry CD and red velvet poster.
