Music: Beach House

Beach House’s gauzy head-trips are marked by the hypnotic voice of frontlady Victoria Legrand. Within the band’s recorded output — which is now at four increasingly ear-pleasing albums after the release of 2012’s Bloom, its second for SubPop — Legrand comes off as an otherworldly figure, an ethereal being who emits dreamy, mood-altering songs rife with ambiguous lyrics and enough atmosphere to fill a Terrence Malick triple-bill. 

A Beach House live show possesses similarly transportive powers.

Legrand — her eyes perpetually hidden behind a mess of dark bangs and her body obscured by large suit jackets — interacts minimally with the crowd, which only allows the band’s music to become all the more immersive.

Beach House performs 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 at Bogart's. $24. Bogarts.com.
