Exclaim says that “alt-folk aficionados are sure to get a big kick out of Teach Me to Love, the latest from Toronto troupe Beams. But aside from the twangy banjos and Appalachian-tinged percussion, the new album will also appeal fans of both Lucinda Williams and Kate Bush. Beams’ frontwomen Anna Mernieks and Heather Mazhar bring haunting yet beautiful vocals to the proceedings, helping Teach Me to Love straddle more than a few genres and styles.” The review picks out “Live In The Real World” as an example of their mastery of blending genres, while also naming “Apartment In My Head,” “Dreamcatcher,” and “My Second Time at the Mountains” as highlights. According to the site, “Beams’ latest LP shines like light refracted through a prism, and listeners are sure to be dazzled by each eclectic shade of the band’s musical rainbow.”
