Beach House & Opinions on Erykah Badu

Beach House

Beach House As Jim says, Beach House is in the house this week. The Baltimore duo of Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand recently released their major label debut Teen Dream. They first gained notice with their self-titled indie release in 2006, and later with 2008's Devotion, though Jim and Greg were less enamored with that record. As Victoria and Alex explain to Jim and Greg, having more resources enabled them to expand their sound, without sacrificing the dreamy intimacy for which they're known. Victoria has a unique vocal style, but she insists it's just what comes naturally to her. Alex describes their musical pairing as“the best and most instantly rewarding.”
