Sam Tully and I have have been playing tracks from bands such as: Tamaryn, Beach House, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Deerhunter, Best Coast, Puro Instinct, Beach Fossils etc. relentlessly on our weekly radio show on URN http://www.urn1350.net/. While I have been listening to a few of these bands for a couple of years, the woozy, summer sounds of these largely lo-fi and/or shoegaze revival bands have only recently started to be classified under the sub-genre of 'Dream-Pop'. Call it what you want, but it's bloody, ruddy good!
Check out a recent favourite, 'Blue Star' by Sea Pony, which features on their upcoming album, Go With Me.
