Beach House, Zomes

When: Sat., May 5, 9 p.m. 2012

Across their first three full-lengths, Baltimore's Beach House shaped a mesmerizing aesthetic by surrounding Victoria Legrand's siren songs in a gauze of reverb, echoing guitars, fragmented drum machines and wobbly keyboards. While the first two records were intriguing enough, 2010's Teen Dream was absolutely addictive, with Legrand's voice riding beats that felt more direct and guiding hooks that felt more inspired. Against potential backlash odds, they've followed up by upping the ante once again on Bloom. Beneath the scrim, the drums hit harder and the keyboards catch quicker, that ever-present wobble now trussed to an almost bluesy drive. With Zomes. Sold out. —Grayson Currin
