Here is the second part of our Spring Music Preview (part one is here). These are the albums we’re most looking forward to through June 21.

Spring Music Preview, Pt. 2
Beach House: Bloom (1 of 8)
Beach House’s third record Teen Dream was a defining, refining step for the band into emotionally rife territory – it’s hard to listen to that one without chills going up your spine. Based on the band’s released singles, their upcoming release Bloom sounds like it’ll have a similar effect: we’ll see when it’s released May 15.

Spring Music Preview, Pt. 2
Best Coast: The Only Place (2 of 8)
Best Coast might have made a name for herself writing songs about boys, cats, and weed, but it can’t be denied that Bethany Cosentino is a great pop songwriter with a knack for catchy guitar lines. Though her lyrical content on The Only Place might have matured, those pop hooks haven’t gone anywhere. The record drops May 15.

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
