I agree, their debut is awesome, The Falling Sun is one of my favourite songs at the moment.

That is a great song.

Also, would The Raveonettes qualify as shoegaze?

Is the Pyramids you guys are talking about the band that made Running Through the Tracks, Forcing Motion Through Phases? I wouldn't think they're what you call shoegaze.

Basically, I'm lost. I've heard of Dinosaur Jr. and Silversun Pickups, but I've heard very little of either of them. So what really is Shoegaze, and what are some good bands?

The Pyramids I was talking was the one who just released their debut album this year on Hydra Head records.

Yeah that's definetly not the one I was thinking of then. You guys should check the other Pyramids out, but their music is very hard to find.

So what are some good Shoegaze bands? Silversun Pickups sound really good.

MBV are a direct influence to Silversun Pickups.

Although I'd say Loveless is better.
They're both great though.
Pyramids are more "metalgaze," heavier than a lot of shoegaze, like Jesu, Alcest, Nadja, and Trenches.
Heretoir's another good one, a lot more on the black metal side though.

I still need to hear some Nadja and Trenches.


And I always laugh when I see the word "metalgaze". duncang laughed at me the first time I used it here on UG, and he made up another genre name I'll never forget.

"Jazzical".

It gets me every time.

I am BEGGING people to listen to Coaltar of the Deepers.

In my eyes,

The. Best. Band. To. Ever. Exist.

The most adventurous, experimental, original, creative, talented, band I have ever heard.

i'm really digging slowdive now. i used to be big into shoegaze, then stopped listening to it, and now i'm listening to it again. i'm starting to think that souvlaki by slowdive is as good as loveless.

that's what the quotes were for, it is kind of an iffy genre.
Most of it's just heavier shoegaze; I wouldn't call bands like Pyramids metal at all really.

I read it first in Decibel, so I take it as a real genre, but I don't use the term a lot.

It sounds badass, though.

It certainly sounds more badass than "shoegaze."

well i love silversun pickups, and being a listener of my bloody valentine and ride, i do have to say they have some obvious shoegaze and dream pop influences...maybe not a 100% shoegaze sound, but it is good enough me. i look forward to their new album.

I don't know if I should mention this, due to haters (that's okay, you can have your opinions), but Coldplay has a hidden track on their new album called Chinese Sleep Chant, which is literally a shoegaze song. It has really nice chords and an amazing guitar tone. I highly suggest it to shoegazing fans...

Not usually a fan, but that was quite good.
SP are quite different. It seems that modern shoegaze has developed from the still rhythm-driven britpop influened earlier stuff into more amibent and spacey music, but SP still have a great rhythm going.

I <3 M83, favorite band right now.

How about Yo La Tengo, they have a lot of shoegaze-ness to them, at least in their album I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One.

Also, I wouldn't count them as a shoegaze band, but damn, NIN's Ghosts stuff has a bunch of ridiculously shoegaze-y textures.

EDIT: Also, Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai!

I think if you start describing Explosions as shoegaze then the word's kind of lost its real meaning. They have some shoegaz-y influences, but their own music really isn't that I don't think.
