  3. Really love the Magic Wands song; never heard of them but a tasty track. And who doesn't love a bit of Burial?

    All these selections would make a great compilation CD, thanks for posting.

    1. @doccortex: You're welcome, good to know you are enjoying the tracks! I was inspired by music blog "gorilla vs bear" and the monthly compilations they put together. I just took a selection of my top dream pop songs from 2012.

  4. That Beach House track is amazing. Sounds more dense than their previous album, dangerously close to losing their minimalistic charm, but I'm loving it still.

    1. @Bonjour Tristesse: Myth is amazing, for lack of a better word the vocal seems more dreamy than their 2010 album.
      Actually, the 2nd Beach House single "Lazuli" is out now, I'm liking it, but not quite loving it.

  5. Love that Burial song. So happy that he is making music once again.

  6. @Eric: Burial is a new find for me, he put out two eps in 2011 and 2012. I see on wikipedia his 2006 and 2007 albums were released to critical acclaim.
