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
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
