today’s tunesday album is the new one from beach house, called teen dream!
i first heard of the duo when i saw grizzly bear in concert and victoria legrand of beach house was there to sing the backup vocals on “two weeks.” she has a beautiful voice that has drawn comparisons to nico and stevie nicks, and i can definitely see the similarities- especially on songs like “zebra” which sounds like it could be from the 70s. beach house’s music is often described as “dream pop”, their album is called “teen dream,” and it was recorded in a church in upstate new york called dreamland…so it’s hard not to use dreamy when describing their music- but it is just that. it feels like the type of music that would be playing in the background in your dreams, or walking through a field of flowers, or, appropriately enough, taking a stroll on the beach.
now take a listen to some tunes from the new album!

I love how simple her outfit is. However, considerations were made to make it look super sexy-Thigh high boots and a cluster of jewelry. I’m Lovin layering my jewelry at the moment, the more the merrier I say!

the sundance film festival started yesterday in park city utah and runs through january 31st. among the films that will be screened are “howl,” about the life of beat icon allen ginsberg and the events leading up to the writing of his famous poem, and “the runaways,” about joan jett, cherie currie and their band’s rise to fame. but perhaps the most anticipated screening will be “exit through the gift shop,” a documentary film by the mysterious street artist banksy. check out the trailer:
