Beach House and Washed Out chill the EARL

Live Review: Beach House w/Washed Out, The EARL in Atlanta, 4/29/10

Baltimore duo Beach House brought their dream pop/indie rock grooviness to Atlanta recently at a sold out EARL. Riding the wave of success from their third studio album Teen Dream (Sub Pop), Baltimore native Alex Scally and French-born Victoria LeGrand Review: Beach House, B-Sides and Rarities - Pretty Much Amazingillustrated how to paint with music. The new release topped the college charts earlier this year and has been an indie favorite.

Telling the crowd, “This is our fourth time playing the EARL,” Scally may be wondering why the venues have not increased in size since the inception of Beach House in 2004. That’s only a matter of time, as college stations and indie fans across the country are pushing them to the top.

Selections of their dreamy and beautiful music included “Used To Be,” “You Came To Me,” “Norway,” “Apple Orchard,” and the golden sounds of “Zebra” (“Any way you run, you run before us / Black and white horse arching among us”).

Opening the show was Georgia native Ernest Greene, better known as Washed Out. On his 2009 release Life of Leisure, the tune “Feel it All Around” became a well-known track and can even be heard as the theme song for Portlandia.
