  1. Tegan Northwood is an Australian singer/songwriter/producer. I first heard her track 'Close' on Pandora a few years back and was impressed: I proceeded to find and purchase the album it came from, 'Self-Raising Flower', a striking mixture of shoegaze, dreampop, ambient and IDMesque elements: https://endgamerecords.bandcamp.com/album/self-raising-flower She released another LP in 2008 called 'Last Days of Home' https://endgamerecords.bandcamp.com/album/last-days-of-home ... And now, today Tegan's released a new EP of tracks called 'Wherever You Are'. Some of you may dig this, highly recommended for fans of Cocteau Twins, Lush, Washed Out, Seefeel, etc: Link to new EP: https://tegannorthwood.bandcamp.com/
  2. I was obsessed with this group's EP Chamber Dreams from some years back, really good dream pop in the vein of Cocteau Twins / early 90s moody dream pop. They have an LP coming out now, little more upbeat but still digging the vocals and production a lot. Bandcamp second video is a bit silly but the music is still excellent
  3. Another great release from Parralax Sounds (Christ., Syntaks and many more). It sounds like a mix of Boards of canada, Bibio and Chapterhouse. Their debut album Phoenix asteroid is also good, but I think this album is much stronger! Found some nice samples from the album on their soundscloud. 1. https://soundcloud.com/ecovillage/ecovillage-blissfully-yours 2. https://soundcloud.com/ecovillage/ecovillage-telepathy 3. https://soundcloud.com/ecovillage/ecovillage-summer-of-love
  4. I've been binging on Cocteau Twins' entire catalog for the past two days. I know there is love for them here but not in the form of a thread like this so far as I could tell. Their discography is a towering achievement; a traceable, single-minded effort toward perfecting an aesthetic that was initially discovered accidentally (Guthrie has said that he originally employed the trademark guitar effects to mask his initially poor playing). I enjoy going through chronologically... They started off sounding like Siouxsie influenced post-punk... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtXJ3SYXPC8 They started experimenting more with textures and aural aesthetics as they grew more comfortable with their gear and each other... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmZfR6dEXhM One of my favorite attributes of the group are Fraser's garbled, glossolalic lyrics which were never meant to come across literally to the listener; a deeply sincere emotional expulsion... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo7TBGn4R8U They moved into slightly more accessible sonic territory while maintaining their idiosyncrasies... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkyzHsCT5zc And they ultimately went on to perfect their sound... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Adp8-YxMwIA Then they almost completely disappeared in 1997. There was to be a reunion tour back in 2005 but it was cancelled shortly before it was slated to commence... If there were a reformation I'm really not sure how or if they could top their previous body of work.
