A catch-all term for the related genres of shoegaze and dreampop which avoids the contentious label shoegaze, which is rejected by many artists who fit the definition. It also avoids the contentious label shoegaze, which some use to refer ONLY to an 80s English rock scene, not modern American bands inspired by that scene.
Ceremony, Skywave, and A Place to Bury Strangers have all been inspired by shoegaze, but blissrock is a less contentious term.

A style of rock music defined by the band Joy Division and numerous imitators. Modern purveyors include Interpol and Editors, much malighned by media for their similar vocal sound.
Joy Division? yeah, that's a postpunk band I think
