For a bit more context Black Hearted Brother is Neil formally of Slowdives new band.

And the Stargazer Lilies used to be Soundpool. I'f you've not tried soundpool, On High is a mint album, and Mirrors in Your Eyes can only be described as 'discogaze'. It's not essential but certainly interesting.

Also, why was I not made aware of Air Formation and Bethany Curve before now? I feel like I'm not even scratching the surface with this genre and there's already so many incredible albums.

It's amazing the holes in my collection I have. For every album I find that seems a bit unheard of, there's another one somewhere that everyone else knows and loves that I'm blissfully unaware of.

Yea well, I've never heard Bethany Curve so I guess I could say the same. Shoegaze is an impressively vast genre for sure. Air Formation in particular is one of my very top favorites so far. Listening to Daylight Storms right now actually, haha.

I love that there's so much of it, but that there's so many different sounds that you can find within it, certainly when you look at it with dream pop, ethereal wave, noise pop and the like attached.
I'm always going on rate your music, looking for an album I like, and then looking what best of lists people have included it in, and then looking what else is in there. And I can guarantee for every bad I've heard of, there's at least 3 that are new to me.

I'm actually contemplating doing a list of my favourite shoegaze myself, just for my own personal satisfaction, and documenting it should my hard drive or PC crash or whatever..

Blind Mr. Jones is my new latest discovery



The guitars on the first one were aparently written by (and possibly recorded, I'm nto sure) by Neil Halstead of Slowdive.
And the latter is notable for it's use of flute.

Downloaded. Sounds pretty good.

Artwork for the new Ceremony due next month.


Got the Stargazer Lilies and Blackhearted Brother albums this week too.

Srargazer Lilies is really slow, but in a really hazy dreamy sort of way. Really recommend it.

Blackhearted Brother isn't as shoegazy as I'd have hoped, but I'm still enjoying it a lot.

Just Came Across Flyying Colours, and felt them worth sharing.

Add Yuck to that list!

Rubber is one of my favorite shoegaze songs

Opale, the first single from the upcoming Alcest album is streaming on Spotify. I love it. Though I think those who liked the metal elements of Alcest will be a bit disappointed, but I've always said I preferred their none metal elements. But if there was any doubt in the past as to them belonging in this thread, they certainly do now.

The new Ceremony album is really rather good

https://moonsoundsrecords.bandcamp.com/album/distance

A bit more lo-fi in terms of production I feel, and a lot less 'in your face' than Rocket Fire was. But they still retain all the elements that make them great.

Thanks for sharing this. It's the first I've heard of them and I think it's great!

edit: I haven't read too far back in the thread but I've been listening a lot to the new Airs, I want to see their show on this Monday coming up

Anyone into Screen Vinyl Image? I got sent a free copy of their Strange Behavior album with the new Ceremony album. It's not bad as it goes. I only knew a few tracks they did from the Ceremony Split they did, but I generally only listened to Ceremony's half. But this is like slightly electronica inspired shoegaze. Kind of like less conventional structures and stuff. Not essential as such, but certainly worth a listen.
