Beach House's new album is called Depression Cherry. If that didn't pick you up enough when the Baltimore natives announced it in May, the first track off it -- a somber, hazy slice of the Beach House wheelhouse called "Sparks" -- might.
"Sparks" could remind alt kids of the since-banned caffeinated energy drink of the same name, but this is probably the last thing you'd want to listen to if you happen to have a case of it stashed away in your basement (it would probably be expired anyway, so don't). The Beach House track is spacious bed of sonic blankets layered just so: the organ, the distorted guitar flourish, the distant march of percussion, Victoria Legrand's ethereal vocals. This isn't far off from 2012's Bloom (their last LP), but that's not a problem at all.
