DIIV - Oshin
Another dreary version of “dream-pop” that sucks the physical effect right out of its would-be motorik grooves by slathering them with overwhelming, inarticulate mush. Lower Dens did a much sharper collision of tight and breezy aspects conflicting inside a song, and found a haunting but lucid unease. DIIV songs just sort of amble for a few minutes, stop. There are records that are great to zone out to, and then records that practically force you to zone out.
