Beach House is streaming its forthcoming B-Sides and Rarities album in its entirety via NPR Music’s “First Listen.” The 14-track album is out June 30th in North America from Sub Pop, Europe from Bella Union, and Australia from Mistletone.

NPR Music says of the album: “Beach House has spent 13 years and six albums perfecting a hazy dream-pop sound that's as versatile as it is enduringly, endearingly simple. Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally make brooding, deliberately paced music that still sparkles and sweetens in surprising ways — a contradiction summed up by the title of one of Beach House's best records, Depression Cherry...Given its title, B-Sides And Rarities is upfront about being an exercise for enthusiasts, completists and other loving obsessives. But more casual fans shouldn't shrug it off, either. Beach House has mounted a marvelous career on its ability to set a gloomy electro-pop mood without losing touch with its brighter side — and that gift stays on full display throughout this shaggily appealing assortment of orphaned gems [link here].”

Beach House also recently delivered a new video for “Chariot” (from B-Sides and Rarities) which was directed by the band. The visual is acts as a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media [link here].

Beach House’s B-Sides and Rarities will be released on CD / LP / CASS / DL and is available for pre-order now [link here]. LP pre-orders in North America through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and select independent retailers will receive the Loser Edition on crystal clear vinyl (while supplies last). A new T-shirt design is also available.
