Default Noise Pop

Not to be confused with Noise Rock.

Noise Pop is the perfect genre. Noise, for little girls afraid of noise. Great harmonies and melodies drowned in distortion and feedback.

A few favourite songs and bands:

this is Noise that I can get behind. I already like The Ravonettes



This band was probably the first noise pop album that I played in its entirety

The Ravonettes just rip off Noise Pop bands from the 80s like Jesus & Mary Chain, but they rip 'em off well. So it's ok in my book.

So you are saying I should listen to Jesus and Mary Chain?

What's a good album to get from them?

Well, they're the most original Noise Pop band and in my opinion they're the best. Psychocandy is their most famous album and it's probably the most famous Noise Pop album, and it's not only my personal favourite from the band but in my top 10 favourite albums ever. Darklands is good as well, but Psychocandy is so much better. Think My Bloody Valentine meeting The Ronettes. Or The Beach Boys, with a bit of Ramones in the mix. Even though it's drenched in layers of distortion and feedback, underneath all that you have the most perfect Pop songs you'll ever hear. Some Noise Pop bands use the Noise aesthetic to blanket mediocre songwriting, but not Psychocandy.

Just Like Honey is the coolest song ever.

Other notable tracks: Taste The Floor, The Hardest Walk, In A Hole, You Trip Me Up

Not a style I am overtly familiar with, but looking it up on RYM
Noise Pop - Music Genres - Rate Your Music

Pavement, Yo La Tengo, The Flaming Lips, MBV and The Jesus and Mary Chain are bands I have enjoyed.

Will need to listen to more in this style.

looks like some of those cross over into Dream Pop as well
Dream Pop - Music Genres - Rate Your Music

Will have to do more research on it.. I am always looking to explore styles I have little knowledge in.

Should give me a list outside of the known ones I mentioned of albums to check out.

There's a little bit of overlap but not that much. If you're interested in some dream pop I made a little comp a few months back:

Looking for some atmospheric noise pop (maybe a bit similar to Black Tambourine). Any suggestions?
