here's a stunningly beautiful, hazy dream pop track i've been meaning to post for some time, Into Black from Portland based, gloomy, indie pop trio Blouse off their forthcoming "Into Black/Firestarter" 7" (2011).

"I wanna watch you fade into ..."

Blouse singer Charlie Hilton's soft dreamy vocals et swirling, blissed-out harmonies guide us through the hazy, broody atmosphere that haunts Into Black, an infectious, jangly guitar riff noodles away while a throbbing bassline et reverb-laden stomping/splashing drums pump a steady rhythmic stream into the track. i'm hanging out for Blouse's debut album which has been set for release on Captured Tracks around July. until then enjoy these tracks!

et here is an older more upbeat indie pop track:
