    Saw them open for Grizzly Bear last year. Their live performance is pretty dull, but they do sound good. I'm really into Teen Dream so I'm planning on catching their set.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    Hopefully Coachella schedules them at 11pm in the Gobi...as a chill out set for people who just want to lay down on the lawn and close their eyes, they can be appealing, as they do sound good live...but as stage spectacle, I seriously doubt there's a weaker act in the lineup...MGMT, Vampire Weekend included.
    This is exactly what I want.. a 3:00 oclock slot with BeachHouse in the Mohave where I can go and chill out and feel the warmth of their live sound.. What were you expecting? Not every band jumps around like the Tokyo Police Club..

    I just listened to Teen Dream for the first time this morning. It sounds pretty fuckin' good on the first listen.

    i really like beach house, although i only have the devotion album. however, i probably won't be seeing them live at coachella unless there are no conflicts or i'm simply exhausted. my mentality at coachella is to party and dance and that generally involves seeing the more exciting live acts. Example: I really love Cinematic Orchestra, but I had to choose Hot Chip instead in '08

    I don't understand all the descriptions of their live show being "dull". Not sure what you're expecting. Their music doesn't exactly lend itself to jumping wildly all over the place or a crazy pyrotechnic display. I saw them opening for Grizzly Bear as well and I thought they were absolutely bewitching.

    I bought Teen Dream a couple days ago, and I'm loving it!

    The CD comes with a DVD of videos for every track on the album, each done by a different director. I haven't watched it yet, but it sounds cool.

    Saw them a while back in Tucson, at the Solar Culture Gallery, with Old Time Relijun. Good show, the lights and fog made it so dreamlike, and it was my first time hearing any of their stuff, I'd recommend! I should probably get Teen Dream though, I didn't know they had anything new out.

    want to know what brings the goosebumps? the soaring "norwaaaaaaaaaaay" 4x at the end of said track. with that discernible harmonized note right beneath it.

    ahhhhhhh so good.

    Ahh this album is growing on me so much, definitely one of my favorites so far this year. Their set should be good, but it's definitely not a MUST see for me.

    I say, you must see, at least once, their live shows have an interesting quality that will probably translate well to the coachella atmosphere. I'm thinking it will be like a Ratatat 07 vibe.

    Yeah it's not that I don't want to see them, there are several bands on saturday who I would see over them if they conflicted. Still early though, I could change my mind come April.

    The crescendo in Used to Be gave me goose bumps on the first listen but I immediately took to the whole album after Droste's recommendation on Twitter. Now I'm trying to dig on some of the older stuff which is a little hit or miss for me. I only wish they were playing back to back with Grizzly Bear on either day.

    The idea of Girls and Beach House conflicting with each other terrifies me.

    Beach House will be GREAT!! They're playing early in the day when you want a more mellow ethereal vibe, and, I would imagine if ever there was a time to, "be in it, to win", Coachella is it. I like their chances of kicking Saturday off to a perfect start. My only concern is that they might be up against Girls. Which, would lead my overwhelming sense of local pride to lead me to miss Beach House for some "pizza and a bottle of wine..."

    That would be a terrible conflict. Just crazy. Fucked in the head.

    I'm sure GV realizes that Girls and Beach House are two big up and coming bands that attracts the same type of crowds and wouldn't want them to conflict. At least I hope so.

    I really like the album, especially the song "Walk in the Park". I have only two problems with the album. All the songs sound very similar, and I hate drum machines. I don't if it is or isn't a drum machine they use, but it sure as hell sounds like one.
