Sowing Rec Competition

I saw someone do a rec competition and thought it was a good idea but I don't have the patience or time for some round-robin shit. Here's how mine works. I have an iTunes gift card I'm looking to burn. I'm in the mood for sparkly, sweeping, cosmic, atmospheric, soundtrack-type indie. You know, the kind of shit that starry-eyed romances are made of. Make me feel like I'm in love for the first time. I will be downloading 10 songs. If your rec is one of them, I will personally shoutbox you (an honor, I know) giving you an honest compliment about something I appreciate that you do around here or your personality in general. If it ends up being my favorite out of the 10, I will review any album you choose at any rating you choose (yes, that includes TDAG at a 1, even though I'd have to make an alt - believe it or not I already reviewed it under this account!) It can be tough to know what I've already heard, so ctrl-f'ing my album ratings page helps. Now without further ado, make me feel things, sputnik! (Oh, and bonus points if it is underground/super obscure and/or has beautiful artwork)...
