Beach House returns with a new album, Depression Cherry, on August 28th via Sub Pop. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full below via NPR.org.

The nine-track effort follows 2012’s superb Bloom and serves as the Baltimore duo’s fifth to date. It was recorded and produced by the band with the help of longtime collaborator Chris Coady (Future Islands, Wavves) at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana.

According to a press release, Depression Cherry sees the dream pop duo crank up the volume and explore unchartered sonic waters:

“In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”

Pre-orders for Depression Cherry are ongoing. Read Philip Cosores’ review of the album here.
