Dive? DIIV? Whatev

It...kinda blends together, track by track, I suppose.  But it almost needs to.  It's dream-pop-y and a little bit motorik (and yes, the name change is kinda inane)--but this is /good/.  The smudgy guitars and unintelligible vocals careen across a staccato bass that hurdles along at speeds Engineers could get behind circa 2009 (maybe with a little less heroin).  It's synth-y indie-pop and shoegaze pressed through a mound of gauze.
Why wasn't I listening to this sooner?
