Beach House announce more tourdates, waterfront property values don't even budge

Ironically, if Beach House owned a beach house, they probably wouldn’t get to use it too much this summer. They’re going out on tour in like a day in support of Bloom, their follow-up to 2010’s Teen Dream (TMT Review), which is due out May 15 on Sub Pop (and May 14 in Europe on Bella Union, and May 15 in Mexico on Arts & Crafts, and May 18 in Australia on Mistletone; check out a track from it below); and they’re really only coming home for a little bit here and there before jetting off again on another tough leg of grueling nonchalance. So, if I were them, I’d probably be eschewing the beach house and using my time off the road to do important stuff like washing my laundry, rounding up all of the stray, rumpled cigarettes left over in otherwise-empty packs laying around the van and consolidating them into into one mega-pack, and cramming all those Hunger Games books before some little shit at one of my upcoming shows gave away the plot to some future movie. Those little fuckers.

As for Bloom itself, I don’t know a ton about it, but I am pretty sure it’s a concept album about this film adaptation of Ulysses from the early aughts. So, I think we’re in for “a bawdy, irreverent, lyrical, compassionate, anguished, earthy, profound and deeply humane slice of life, performed with verve and intelligence by a superb ensemble cast.” Although, you’re right, that smacks of a little bit too much effort for Beach House. I don’t know about you, but all I’m looking for is a new soundtrack to my typical Boone’s Farm and Ambien Friday afternoons. And don’t I deserve that??? My one friend who sells Popsicle sticks painted to look like celebrities on an Etsy store for a living says I do.
