I've been singing his praises for a while, but if you like shoegaze, you should check out Youth Lagoon. Parts of it really remind me of Galaxie 500. Really slow building stuff that moves from sparse, folky lofi to sweeping, lush shoegaze.
In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
