Hey man, cool to see another Marylander around. As for good music to come out of this ****ty state these days, Baltimore has had a growing music scene over the last decade or so. There's Lungfish, who are pretty incredible, if you like their genre. And Wye Oak, who, if you like Beach House, you would probably love. Double Dagger is a pretty phenomenal Baltimore post-punk group..

But one of the coolest things about most Baltimore bands, I've noticed, is their uniform gratitude to Baltimore. In the liner notes to a lot of the Baltimore-based albums I have, there is a huge mention of their hometown somewhere in there, which is nice to see. I mean, of course, I'm not saying bands from other cities don't do that sort of thing, but Baltimore bands seem to be very enthusiastic about their city.

(And dude, if you count Washington D.C. as a part of Maryland like I do, there's some serious bands from there. Fugazi, Dismemberment Plan, Nation of Ulysses, Minor Threat, etc.)

Yeah, the first few songs are quite gorgeous. But this band never really could hold my attention for a whole album. We'll see what happens with this one.

I've heard of Wye Oak and Lungfish, but I'm more interested in what bands from Philly are pushing out. These days I'm more upset about not being able to go into DC or Baltimore City for a show and worry about being mugged walking down the street than about what Baltimore based bands are putting out, it's ****ing rediculous. My Uncle and his girlfriend used to live on the same street as the Ottobar and they've had shootouts down the street and *******s trying to break in quite frequently.

would you consider them to be shoegazer? i mean i guess i can see how you would get that but i see them as very different from say slowdive or my bloody valentine. beach house is a little more out there, especially with the percussion stuff they do.

If anything they have more of a dream pop sound, which is 75% similar to shoegaze.

I don't know about all that... Obviously neither cities are safe places to go. But I go to DC all over the place quite regularly and Baltimore on occasion and haven't had much trouble. For all the bands going there, it is well worth dealing with (though I imagine my tone would change if I was caught in a shootout walking to a concert). I haven't seen more than maybe a fight or two in all the times I've been there to see bands. Definitely never seen anyone pull a knife or a gun except for times I've been there looking for trouble and knowing full well what I was getting into.

Back on topic, Teen Dream continues in a great direction, I'm really digging it lately. Beach House are one of the best doing dream pop stuff these days in my opinion. Never fails to hold my attention and suck me in the whole way through.

I recently saw them at a tiny venue in SF and they blew me away. Victoria's vocals have evolved and matured so much that it was truly a pleasure to watch them live. Each song translated very well in the live setting and the place was packed with people of all ages, which always signifies a band with lasting potential to me. As for the new record, from what I've heard I am hopeful that 2010 will be Beach House's year!!

Yeah, it's definitely happening. Zebra and Take care feel like instant classics. Definitely a front runner for album of the year.
