    I had never heard of this genre either, courtesy of Wikipedia:

    The AllMusic Guide to Electronica defines dream pop as "an atmospheric subgenre of alternative rock that relies on sonic textures as much as melody".[8] Common characteristics are breathy vocals and use of guitar effects, often producing a "wall of noise".[8][3] Dream pop tends to focus on textures and moods rather than propulsive rock riffs.[9] Lyrics are often introspective or existential in nature.[9] In the view of music critic Simon Reynolds, dream pop "celebrates rapturous and transcendent experiences, often using druggy and mystical imagery".[3] According to Rachel Felder, dream pop artists often resist representations of social reality in favor of ambiguous or hallucinogenic experiences.[10]

    Dream pop is pretty much the airy, spacey, less noisy side of shoegaze.

    Cocteau Twins' material can be @ the noisy side. Not as noisy as, say, MBV, but they're in the vicinity.

    I was listening to a post-goth, dreamy, occasionally distorted, often trippy album this AM at the gym. Love & Rockets (1989).
