    Beach House rules! ;)



    "Released 10 years ago on February 26, 2008, Devotion marks the point where Beach House found their sound. Singer Victoria Legrand and her musical partner, guitarist and keyboardist Alex Scally, have traveled far since then. Later albums, like 2015’s gorgeous Depression Cherry, have made them one of the most beloved indie acts of their generation. But this one stands alone as a moment of discovery. It felt then and feels now like a glimpse of a private world. A secret worth treasuring."

    The record itself looks cool, but I'm not really interested in the pick overall. Hope everyone else enjoys!

    This album pretty much marks the beginning of Beach House's domination of the dream pop genre over the last 10 years. Every pressing of it thus far has sounded like shit. Seems like it'll be a great sounding record apart from being just a great one.

    Honest question... who else qualifies as dream pop?

    It's a generic list but pretty accurate although, some of these I would also consider shoegaze!

    I was already pretty happy with the choice, but the record, the art print and just the overall package is really killer. Really looking forward to this one!

    I don't know that I've ever actually listened to a Beach House album. I think I tried Depression Cherry when it came out, but it didn't stick. Curious to see what this one is all about.

    Well here's the thing... We realize it was in the store... And it does suck that 50-100 of you purchased it, but we truly believe this package is insanely better. We also couldn't pass up the opportunity to do this record.

    We're very proud of this package, and honestly think it's the most premium package we've ever done.

    so about those clues @Clay Conder. is it just that they were beaches or was there more meaning to them?
