The 25 Best Albums of 2010 (So Far)

#18: Beach House Teen Dream

Released: January 26 (Click Here To Buy It Now On MP3)
Best Song: "Take Care"

Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally hail from Baltimore but their sound is about as far as you can get from the bass-ridden anthems that dominate that city's clubs. The duo shot a music video for every song on Teen Dream (the same way 50 Cent did with the album that features "Baltimore Love Thing," unnecessary word association, we know), and it's easy to understand why. The lush sonic landscapes on standout tracks like "Lover Of Mine" sound like the backdrop to a dream sequence in your own personal romance film, hence the album title. If these records are playing during our REM sleep, we never want to wake up.
