Speaking of Dream Pop, just saw this Pitchfork list of someone's favorite Dream Pop recordings, with a nice intro by Dean Wareham.
I ran across that and was happy to see Wareham's contributions. Posted the top 10 in post #53, thanks for including DW's intro.
OMG, I feel so AK amateurish, I blame my lack of coffee.
Nope. Top-10 heavy-hitter all day long.

The Reegs formed from members of The Chameleons after the split with Mark Burgess. Not entirely a Dream Pop sound, a lot of it would be filed under neo-psychedelia tag. It's got plenty of layers of swirling guitars and synthesizer.
This release is a compilation of everything they recorded, on 2 CD's. (Another reason I love CD's so much, collecting all their stuff on vinyl would cost hundreds. CD was eight bucks).
Here is a random selection if you are interested.
Sounds interesting. I'll need to look into hearing some more material by this ensemble.
I need to look into hearing more from this genre!
There's some mighty fine listening to be had @ Dream Pop young man. I know that you're already well acquainted with Opal, Mazzy Star, and other work associated w/ Hope Sandoval and Galaxie 500. The Brits have some excellent examples (IMO) as well, the Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine in particular. There's also the lovely & often lush work of Beach House, relative newcomers to the Dream Pop scene.
