Asobi Seksu

This band is truly awesome. Guitar work daisy-chained through various effects pedals, atmospheric keyboards, direct bass and urgent drumming all contrasted with gentle vocals, sung in English and Japanese, combining to create the lush sound of Asobi Seksu. Their new album, Citrus, has received excellent reviews, and they have been respectfully compared/likened to the shoegaze genre, but definitely have developed their own sound from their influences.

So if you're a My Bloody Valentine fan, be happy, and if you're not, be even happier.
