Beulah - The Coast Is Never Clear
Feb 12, 2019
82
Arguably Beulah’s finest hour, and certainly their most listenable. “The Coast is Never Clear” definitely sounds very turn-of-the-century, existing somewhere at the intersection of Elephant 6 psychedelia, Fountains of Wayne sunshine pop, and Delgados-esque chamber pop. That said, Beulah’s music holds up incredibly well and sounds very fresh even 17 years later. It helps that many of Beulah’s best hooks are on this album; “The Coast is Never Clear” churns out one perfect indie pop song after another. Miles Kurosky is also a highly engaging lyricist, saving his darkest, most cynical lines for his sunniest melodies, and couching them with trumpets and ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-da’s. Though the trends within indie pop have shifted, Beulah sound just as good as ever.
