Beach House, April 9, Neurolux 

Baltimore dream-pop duo Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand of Beach House make music so visual it's impossible to pluck its creators from the mental movie they've scored. Their first two releases spawned the soundtrack to a lonely, late-summer afternoon, conjuring up images of pretty things draped on vintage couches, suspended in a thick haze of indifference. But after creating this ghostly atmosphere, Beach House decided they were ready for something new. Something louder.

The band's new release, Teen Dream, retains their twinkling guitars and echoing atmosphere, but ratchets up the pop. Legrand's vocals pierce the background fog like a lighthouse set to the thump of a kickdrum. The bite-your-cheek break-up ballad "10 Mile Stereo" builds until it shimmers out into a thrashing mess of beats and cymbals. Beach House has left wet footprints in the sand and set sail on more turbulent, but equally beautiful waters.

With Bachelorette, $12 adv., $14 door, Neurolux, 111 N. 11 St.,
