wow and flutter

maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to get a lot of love here...

a captivating tune and I never tire of hearing it. One of their best . I love the lyrics too. The backing vocals are heavenly. Every second of this gem is like the most delicious of dream pop. But this is dream pop, isn't it? I mean literally. IT IS dream pop.

That IS NOT dream pop.
Dream pop may be considered some of the songs on ”Peng!”.
For a real definition of dream pop... listen to the Cocteau Twins. Which brings us to the question: are there any other people besides me who adore both Stereolab and Cocteau Twins, even though the two bands have somewhat different definitions of quirky?

*raises hand*

I adore Cocteau Twins and have their complete discography. Stereolab and CT are quite different, but I find that dissecting both bands songs never gets old. Liz Fraser is other-worldly. I wish she'd release that damn solo album she's been working on for the past 10 yrs.

Did you get "Moses" from last year?

It's good. I think it's just not talked about because it's greatness is already accepted. lol
