"This is an album that is simply, in the most awe-inspired sense of the term, absolutely golden from end to end – a real treasure and an utter delight to experience every time you play it." (www.popmatters)

In our straitened times you can really understand the 21st recurrence of dream-pop – the American term for melodic, effects-laden guitar music that refuses to make eye contact. We used to call it shoe-gaze in the early 90s, and it was noisier. Now – depending on what it's made on – it's referred to as chillwave or hypnagogic pop.

The frequent comparisons to bands like Mazzy Star and the Cocteau Twins are logical, considering their records come out on Bella Union, the label run by two of the Twins. But Beach House sound less like either of those bands than a boy-girl synth version of an arpeggiating American outfit like Mercury Rev, perhaps, given that Legrand was born French. (
