Beach House - Teen Dream (2 stars)

Beach House - Teen Dream

Bella Union

This third album from the Baltimore dream-pop duo is billed as a more immediate platter than previous output, and while that’s certainly true, there remains a certain obscurity and lack of personality that makes it, well, a tad wishy-washy. Reverb-soaked wispy organs and chiming guitars abound as Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally stumble through a breathy pop landscape familiar to fans of Galaxie 500 and Mazzy Star, but they never seem to stamp their sound with enough charisma to make any of their melodies stick in the mind. Pleasant on the ears while it’s on, but instantly forgettable afterwards.
