Galaxie 500 - On Fire
So I saw that you have this wish-listed, so I thought I'd help you out and post it! It is an awesome slowcore/ dreampop album. I can't really pick any standout tracks yet except the first, though they all seem good. The whole album blends together as sort of one cohesive whole, feeling like drifting along on a cool day.
Everything is very simply put together, but this works well and it manages to create a really pleasant atmosphere with it. They call these guys slowcore, but I don't see them as close to Red House Painters or Low. They are slow, but the atmosphere is a little different by my reckoning, closer to something like My Bloody Valentine. Anway, hope you enjoy.
