I don't think artistic integrity and having varied sound are the same thing. In my opinion Beach House are one of the most artistic acts out there right now. their instrumentation is usually very sparse, which creates a lot of space in the music. the kinds of spaces they create are beautiful. a lot of people criticize them for always using the same kind of instrumentation: drum machine loop, keys, some decorative guitar, etc., but if that's their medium then that's their medium. i respect that. no one ever criticizes Nirvana for arranging all their songs with distorted power-chord guitars, drums, and bass, or Bach for writing so many fugues that sound "the same". i feel like Beach House has created their own sound, their own genre, and they are free to explore it as deeply as they want. i love pretty much all of it, and to me there are huge differences between their songs when you listen to the small details. if you like some of their stuff i would encourage you to listen more closely. and i don't mean that in a condescending way; i genuinely think you might find something in there that you didn't notice before. Side note: Scatterbrain has always been one of my absolute favourite RH songs, so in some senses maybe our tastes are similar! or maybe you used to love that song but your taste changed. oh i don't know. this post is getting too long.
