    Their top five "songs of the year" are horrible picks.

    Why does "Myth" by Beach House sound so familar, is it a cover?

    Here's my breakdown of the top 5 singles:
    1. It's good, but not number one good. I enjoyed her interview on XMU a couple months back.
    2. I liked the way that "Pyrimads" sits on the album, but I think that "Thinking About You" is better song on it's own. The video is awesome.
    3. Seriously - WTF is with this Usher shit?
    4. *rolls eyes*
    5. Japandroids aren't very bad, but they aren't very good either.

    With that being said, I do appreciate their list. There are some good picks like, "Only Going Backwards" and "Wet Blanket". Does anyone have a playlist that I can DL?

    Usher's Climax wouldn't be relevant without Diplo behind it.

    Their year end quote list is full of gems: http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-...n-quotes-2012/

    Including this from Beach House:

    Writing about us, people have said: "Do we need another album by this band?" What the fuck is that? That only matters if you're just listening to sound. It's this pathetic era we're in where people are like, "I'm done with them, I need a new sound; I'm a baby, I need something every five minutes." A lot of people listening to music now don't listen to the songs at all. They just go, "Good tones…" and that's it. But we're obsessed with songs. Sometimes, I feel like people aren't listening to our songs, they're just listening to the sound.

    You all keep saying either Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar will get the number 1 spot... my money is on Grimes.

    Nope. Kendrick and Frank are #1 and #2. It's a toss up between which is which.

    Beach House doesn't belong there, and I personally don't care about Grimes at all, but it's a good one.

    Same album four times in a row. I don't get it at this point.

    Pretty damn close.

    Their albums list seems really lackluster this year, even if I like a ton of stuff on it. It's more about what's not there, which I guess is stuff that's typically to the sidelines of what they cover anyway. I think their songs list this year is a bit more solid as a whole.

    And I don't know why Beach House get shit for making the same album over and over again when plenty of well respected bands do the same fucking thing. I wouldn't put Bloom in my top 10 or 20, but it's as solid as anything they've done with some of the best songs of their career.

    I guess for me it's that I've never been impressed by Beach House as a whole. They are nice on the surface but the songs never stick with me whatsoever. I feel like I could start humming the melody from one song and not even realize that I'd transitioned to another. Counter that to the Ramones, for example, who accurately meet the description of making the same album four times, but each one was chock full of classic tunes that could actually be differentiated. A formula is great if you do it well, but for me Beach House is exactly what they bitch about in that quote you had on the last page: all surface with not enough song to back it up.

    Then again, I'd also define 2012 as the year I became extraordinarily bored with pretty, proper indie music. The loud stuff spoke to me so much more.

    Yeah. Bloom is a substantial step forward in song writing and production for the band. It's got a much more lush, full sound than Teen Dream, and if you really think it's "the same album four times in a row" then you need to go back and listen to Irene again. Never before have they penned a tune that has featured such a post-rockesque crescendo, far and away my favorite song of the year. Sure, there are a lot of similarities to their past albums on this one, but there are also plenty of differences. And to be honest I'm perfectly happy with the band acknowledging what they're good at and sticking to it.

    I agree with the second point, but I think Beach House are one of the few that are keeping NPR indie engaging. I guess it just falls to taste as usual. I've been on board with them since the first album, and while yeah, they can be kinda samey, especially over the course of an entire album, I disagree that they're surface only. If nothing else, they have a sound that is completely their own, which is more than 90% of these polite indie bands can claim. And while that alone isn't enough to carry any band over four albums, I'd say a song like "Myth" isn't too far from pop perfection. They're never going to be a favorite band or something that gets me extremely excited, but damned if they don't scratch a very specific itch when I'm in the mood.

    I've heard several people say that they're boring. What cracks me up is that usually when someone says something is boring (and I'm not talking about anyone specifically from this board) what they really mean to say is that something is subtle, and that they have the attention span of an 8-year old.

    I find them boring. And I've listened to each album a decent amount of times. I enjoy them live where they can push the atmosphere more, but none of their albums has stuck with me beyond the time it took to play.

    I enjoy Beach House live and on record. It doesn't surprise me when someone labels them "boring" or as a "one trick pony" though.
