That's what she said

Echoing Nilam (in my own words, written previously to reading hers):

Corinne Baily Rae: The Sea
Mixed-race jazz-pop artist guaranteed to turn the head of any culturally hyperaware NPR enuthiast. An album of good moments that is too often seduced into Starbucks-friendly choruses, best exemplified by the supremely grating "Paris nights and New York mornings". C+

Beach House: Teen Dream
Beach music for the haunted. A melodic blend of surf guitar, organ, and caterwaul. Likely to be one of the year's best. A+
