When a band births a fantastic album, a sense of dread often accompanies the excitement surrounding its next release. In the case of Beach House, 2010’s Teen Dream was as close to flawless as an album gets. Beautiful, ethereal, with a charming sense of simplicity. But could these Baltimore indie darlings do it again? Yes, yes they can. 2012’s Bloom is haunting and perfectly polished, with a delicate layering of tiptoe-esque instrumentation that leads to a powerful conclusion within each track. Take “Lazuli,” with its chill-inducing first notes, steadily building toward the ending: “Like no other/You can’t be replaced.” Goosebump-worthy, it’s a feeling sure to accompany the duo’s highly anticipated Pabst Theater show. Thankfully, without dread.
 
Beach House (Oct. 10). Pabst Theater. 144 E. Wells St., 414-286-3663, pabsttheater.org.
