Beach House, '7'

We Say: 2015's Depression Cherry was Beach House's lushest album to date, raising the question of how they could possibly top it, short of tapping a team of quantum scientists to develop even headier reverb pedals. 7 ... is the duo's first attempt since then to push their sound forward. ... This is the least introverted record Beach House have ever made; it'll still blow your mind with candles lit and headphones on, but it's the first time they've sounded like a band you might want to hear at a party with more than one guest. S.V.L.
