The roots of dream pop, if you will, are steep deep in the musical influences of psychedelic rock, post punk, shoegaze and increasingly, indie folk rock.

On Sunday, the first installment of the The Dream Playlist series was published, featuring songs from bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Animal Collective and Odawas. Below are the songs for Vol. II of this series featuring bands and artists like The Magnetic Fields, Sore Eros, Bon Iver, Spirit Spine, Blind Man's Colour and more.
