I recently got lent Souvlaki by Slowdive which I like very much, and I'm also a Sigur Ros nut who are shoegazey in places. Can anyone reccommend me any similar stuff? As a poor student with an HMV gift card worth 10 I can afford 2 CDs.

I'd recommend the "Treasure" album by Cocteau Twins. They were a huge influence on Sigur Ros, and are really good.

The Shoegaze Staple: Loveless by My Bloody Valentine.

Loveless is definately a must. I'd also say Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy.

shoegaze is, basicly, where it's at.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I'll go and buy those My Bloody Valentine and Jesus And Mary Chain records next time I'm in town.
