BEACH HOUSE : MYTH [BLOOM, 2012]

Aπό τα πιο συμπαθή μου σχήματα της νέας χιλιετίας είναι οι Beach House από την Φιλαδέλφια. Το ντουέτο αποτελούν οι songwriters & multi-instrumentalists Victoria Legrand [ανηψιά του Γάλλου συνθέτη] και Alex Scally.
“Dream pop”, “εναλλακτικό ροκ”, “ψυχεδέλεια”, είναι λέξεις που αποδίδουν κάτι από το κλίμα της μουσικής τους, όχι όμως και το πόσο ενδιαφέροντες είναι, σε αντίθεση με τα περισσότερα σύγχρονα γκρουπ του είδους.
Beach House from Philadelphia are one of my favorite outfits of the new millennium.
The duo are consisted by songwriters & multi-instrumentalists
Victoria Legrand [niece of the French composer] and Alex Scally. “Dream pop”, “alternative rock”, “psychedelia”, are words that tell something about their music’ mood, but not how interesting they are, unlike most contemporary groups of the genre.


Drifting in and out, you see the road you’re on
It came rolling down the cheek
Say just what you need
And in between, it’s never as it seems
Help me to name it
Help me to name it
If you built yourself a myth
You’d know just what to give
What comes after this
Momentary bliss
Consequence of what you do to me
Help me to name it
Help me to name it
Found yourself in a new direction
Arrows falling from the sun
Canyon calling, would they come to greet you?
Let you know you’re not the only one
Can’t keep hanging on
To all that’s dead and gone
If you built yourself a myth
You’d know just what to give
Materialize
Or let the ashes fly
Help me to name it
Help me to name it

    You are catching me up to 2020, and catching me up to 1900 from many years prior.
    Loving it! Seems I only had 1 century of music in me, before here.

      Well, I don’t want to sound like bragging, but I go back to 1100.
      And trust me, there’s incredibly intelligent and “relative” stuff written in every era.
      Thank you!

        I do trust you! 1100; would that be like religious music, chants?

          Mostly. But also fantastic troubadour songs! the origins of today’s folk!

            Right! Troubadours, minstrels.. I forgot about them. It’s a wonderful thing how far back different musics can trace their roots.
