Modern psych rockers Beach House are following up their surprisingly huge third album, 2010’s Teen Dream, withBloom, scheduled for release on May 15, via Sub Pop.

It starts out all small, with chintzy yet pleasing piano keys, humming with cheapness. The recede and move until more thickness and haze and lonesome-ness is added. Until Victoria Legrand’s vocals and the swelling tasteful hugeness of the track finally comes in.
Word is, “Lazuli” is being released as a Record Store Day single. Listen to it here:
