Beach House’s excellent album Bloom was released today to rave reviews. “Lazuli” is one of those tracks that pummels you with its “epicness” halfway through. The song changes gear at the 2:33 mark — after being stripped down to its basics, layers of sound are gradually added. First come the guitar arpeggios, then Victoria Legrand’s lead vocals, followed by the bass. Once the backing vocals come in, you recognize how amazing “Lazuli” is.
