Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost
It def has a lot more indie influence than an album like Loveless though, so I can see why it will appeal to him (and to me, in all honesty) as it's not just straight shoegaze. I agree it's not breaking any new boundaries or anything though.
Eh, yeah.. I was just suggesting that chances are if you've heard a few shoegaze albums, Beach House may not be worth checking out. I didn't think the "indie" element was worth mentioning.
