Why We're Excited: The appellation "dream-pop" gets thrown around like so much confetti, but Bodywash earns it in a big way: You don't listen to "With Heat" so much as drift amiably on a cloud that contains its essence. All the elements here — especially those softly reverberating guitar whooshes and twinkly synths — are calibrated for maximum comfort as Rosie Long Decter's voice eases you into a woozily sated slumber.
