I don't really care for The Cocteau Twins and Lush compared to the rest of the albums I listed, but they're always cited as being really important or whatever.


I've already heard the Slowdive album and loved it. But yeah, thanks for the other recommendations, I'll come back and tell you what I think.

Can anyone rec me some catchy and poppy yet still dreamy shoegaze, like The Depreciation Guild? Shoegaze used to be one of my favorite genres but my attention span is too short for it these days, I prefer more pop oriented bands but I don't know many.

Alison's Halo too obvious? Pinkshinyultrablast are also super pop oriented.

Anyone know why Slowdive never could figure out how to end a song? More than one fade out on an album is really kind of unacceptable. Not that the albums weren't amazing anyway, but Slowdive always ended up sounding a little unfinished, since no song ever reaches an actual conclusion.

Surprised I never thought to look for a Shoegaze thread on here before, and when I do, it's filled with people I recognize.

really liking The Stargazer Lillies at the moment, who are sort of a Soundpool side project.
http://soundcloud.com/the-stargazer-lilies

At the risk of jumping into a thread and doing the typical nooby thing of listing bands... I'm also liking Stella Luna, LSD and The Search For God, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun (Who I'm seeing a week on thursday), Ceremony, Skywave, Trespassers William, Soundpool, Highspire and A Place to Bury Strangers (though I really haven't listened to them much since getting exploding head the other week. I just found that album a bit lacklustre compared to the self titled. )

I'm sure a couple of the metal forum reg's will have seen this in the chat thread, but there's a free compilation available with some pretty good tracks on it,
http://shoegazr.bandcamp.com/
Side A being the dreamier side of things I'd say.

Ceremony are starting a European tour soon, and are releasing a new EP to coincide with it, however they aren't coming to the UK, apparently due to not being able to get a visa or something. I hope the EP isn't a tour only thing though, as I have a pretty decent collection of Ceremony stuff which I'd like to add to, with the only thing I don't have a Legit copy of being the self titled album/ep, but I do have a copy of it sent from Paul Baker. And I guess I don't have a physical version of Someday/Cracked Sun 7" but I do have a legit download of it.

Also Loveless is over rated, discuss...

I think that's all for now

It's like I can appreciate it's significance, both in musical influence and production influence. But shy of the odd song, I've never listened to it and though 'yeah, this is good'.

I think I said this in another thread, but I find my self liking bands who get called my bloody valentine clones far more than I actually like my bloody valentine.

I'd say so.
At first I was like "hmm this is ok I guess" but there was an elusive quality that made me keep going back to it, and it kept getting better every time, and every time I liked it more and more.

Does anyone know if they're still going? Mind Expansion lists a self titled full length album as coming soon, and even has a Catalog Number - ME-2028.
But there doesn't seem to be any dates anywhere on their site. So I don't know if the label is still going either.

Also let's not kid ourselves here, shoegaze is hardly known for it's wonderful band names. I think LSD and the Search for God are far from the worst culprits.

Why just one fade out per album? Is there any reasoning for that or is it more of an arbitrary eh-I-don't-like-fade-outs-so-I-only-wanna-hear-one kind of thing?
