The Delgados reminds me of Mazzy Star with more bite and less hypnotic sleepiness. Their latest album, Hate, is a particularly enchanting mix of velvet and vitriol and I can’t praise it highly enough. Plus, the song “The Light Before We Land” is used as the opening theme to Gunslinger Girl, which makes it all the more poignant.
