"indie rock, a genre that has typically favored effacing the lead vocal through reverb, distortion, a low mix, nonsensical lyrics, or an enigmatic personality for the better part of twenty-five or thirty years. (Aside: is that the legacy of the Jesus and Mary Chain or does it go back further?)"

Greatly stated! I sat here trying to describe his voice. I like all your descriptions. I came up with enigmatic.

I think the drumming's a pretty integral sound of the band's sound, too: relentlessly propulsive, never really abating, etc. But maybe you were talking about the band's sound in terms of, like, sonic qualities and not its, you know--sound. Either way.

lovely writing and thanks for the link to that Zane interview. Truly shed some light on the recording process.
