I gave it a solid listen, but haven't really soaked it in yet. Definitely a good release, though.

i really don't think SY are shoegaze...

i recommend checking out Ringo Deathstarr. i mostly suggest you listen to them because i like the name, but the music isn't half bad.

FA: Yeah, it's not really so much for active listening, but it's got some intense atmosphere.

Pm sent also

Big reverb is pretty much a must; maybe look into a chorus for clean passages, and maybe even a delay.

Anyone listened to Dead Meadow?
I actually used to listen to them a while back when I was into stoner rock and they seem to be a hybrid between that and shoegaze.

The album with the word feather in it is good.

I've just managed to get a great My Bloody Valentine/Mary Chain/A Place To Bury Strangers-type distorted shoegaze sound using distortion and reverb, I used a Boss DS-2 and an Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail but you can probably do it with most pedals. The key is to set your reverb to a spring-esque algorithm and set it to 100% wet - if you strum you won't hear the attack of each note but just a continuous droning wall of noise. Awesome.

Kevin Shields' set up still baffles me to this day. How he cranks out THAT much sound with such a simple set up is astounding.

Oh, definitely.
I'd love to hear one of their extended ambient/noise intros that they do live.

It would be the first show I would take earplugs to.

As hardass as it would be to pass out from the sheer sound they produce, but I would much rather see the show in its entirety.

But what a way to go...

Then again, that's just the intro, imagine a whole set of Sunn O)))

Also, "Deathconciousness" = Great.

I'm on "Deep, Deep" now, and have loved every minute of both discs so far.

There's a bit of everything thrown in; I love albums with a really unique feel like that one. Apparently they draw from everything from My Bloody Valentine to Xasthur and Silencer (though thankfully Nattramn isn't a big influence vocally ).
I love black metal and shoegaze mixes, not many bands seem to be able to pull it off well though.

Just talking about Kevin's set up.

I WISH I had that set up. I've been on eBay trying to look for that same Yamaha rack effect that he used for the reverse reverb.

It's not hard to find a Jaguar and some EQ pedals.

Think I'm gonna get a Holy Grail. What's the difference between the two different ones?

About $40.


But, really, I have no idea.

I guess just read up on the features from each one on the website, or on Musician's Friend.
