The rest of the album 'Beatless' is good too!
is the song destined for a Shoegaze cover; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpSjzbFU7KU
as an aside, am i the only one annoyed by the term "Shoegazer?" I guess it's one thing to describe a shoegaze fan as such, but another when referring to it as the genre's name.
not so sure about the Let It Be cover.
I prefer dream pop. When I describe it to people I just say, "alternative rock with noisy guitars and lots of reverb".
it's weird because it seems like it used to be that Dreampop and Shoegaze were essentially synonyms (or at the very least, Shoegaze grew out of dreampop), but now it seems like Dreampop's some kind of consolation prize for bands who clearly aren't Shoegaze, but its fans want them to be. I find it odd how many consider them 2 distinct genres now.
Dreampop currently seems to be defined as "They use a chorus pedal and a delay pedal; close enough!"
see Beach House, etc
One of the best things I've heard this year, along with MBV, The Besnard Lakes and Pale Seas.
