The question "what would life look like if you were listening to Beach House at the Silver Surfer's Bed-Stuy apartment while playing with his smoke machine and hula hoops" has never been asked, but it has certainly been answered by the video to "Silver Soul". It's hazy, murky, and dreamy, an appropriate combination of visual obscurities to compliment the auditory coma created by Teen Dream. And for the price of a Flexflow 1500 and some glitter, you can recreate it in your bathtub!
Victoria Legrande (one-half of the House) has directing credits, an interesting move for the young band, that definitely shows their versatility. Teen Dream, their new album, is out today, and the companion DVD contains a video for every song (show-offs), each by a different director. Get ready for an audio-visual cluster-cuss.
Beach House is playing their record release show at The Bell House tonight in Brooklyn, NY. We don't want to ruin any surprises for you, but don't be surprised if you see us there. With cameras. - joe puglisi
