A genre of music in which repetitive samples are the primary musical element. The genre was perfected and popularized by Panda Bear's 'Person Pitch' and Animal Collective's 'Merriweather Post Pavillion' albums. It often sounds "wet", trancelike, sometimes dreamy, and borrows elements of Dub and IDM.
The song "My Girls" by Animal Collective is probably the best samplegaze song ever written.
