The Slaves - Ocean on Ocean

Shoegazey (at least I think it's shoegaze-influenced, I've only heard Loveless by MBV, lol) drones with wordless (I think) vocals. This is how they describe themselves: "The Slaves are a girl/boy duo from Portland OR trading in gothic drones and slowed down 50’s pop and surf.  Using voice, feedback, and synths Barbra Kinzle and Birch Cooper create an overwhelming and melancholic beauty.  Mastered by Matt Carlson of Golden Retriever" (it took me a while to get over that 50's pop and surf thing, it's ridiculous how far people can go to sound original in their "inspirations"). Anyway, you can listen to the full album on Bandcamp, OR download it from here:
