That's true, I wrote that last night and I realized this morning that Mogwai and Explosions aren't shoegaze really, more like an offshoot of post-rock with some walls of sound.

Jesu? Shoegaze? Sounds suspicious to me... very much on the edge of the genre. More post-metal perhaps

Sorry for the double post but uhhhh explosions in the sky and mogwai are VERY VERY VERY post-rock, not an offshoot. They're sort of the core of the genre now that godspeed went all infinite hiatus and whatnot

Plus a lot of material after that, like stuff on "Pale Sketches", and "Conqueror". Yes, it's metal influenced, but it's also heavily shoegaze influenced. The atmosphere, the vocals, etc.

Jesu sound more like Slowdive than they do like any post-metal I've heard. I'd say they were shoegaze. But yeah, categorisations are a bit silly most of the time.

Yo, I've only heard of a Sonic Youth, MBV and Dinosaur jr. and Jesus and the Mary Chain on here, and I was wondering who should I listen to next.

Lush's album "Split".

A bit more dream pop than shoegaze, but it all meshes in the end.

I demand that you add Gregor Samsa to your list. They may not be as popular as some of the others but they still have a pretty big following. http://www.myspace.com/gregorsamsamyspace

Also, I love the music but hate the term Shoegaze, it just makes no sense!

Just a quick question, would I be able to get that Mary Chain/A Place To Bury Strangers white noise distortion sound by using my distortion pedal then using an EQ to boost the hell out of the high end? Or is there a bit more to it than that?

I'd say boost your mids quite a bit as well.

Thanks for the input guys

I add most thing I see on this thread and although this is not a black and white list as to what bands are shoegaze but if they are similar or in the gray for w/e reason I'll leave them on just because chances are you'll like it if you listen to Shoegaze

Play nice people!

Oh, can't believe I forgot Amesoeurs.
Definitely worth a listen if you like Alcest.
Has black metal vocals though.

The best way to get that white-noise distortion (if i'm thinking of the correct sound) is to crank a distortion pedal before a wah in the toe-down position.

I'm not sure if that's how they're saw by most, but they have undeniable shoegaze influence, and their song structures are very much like MBV and Ride.



Yeah, I think I've seen the term nugaze used. Personally, I think shoegaze is shoegaze is shoegaze. Whether it's a new or old band. I think it keeps the spirit of the genre alive and not make it sound dated.

I saw Deerhunter on the list. I've only recently discovered them. I absolutely love Weird Era and Microcastle, even though they're both different in the own right. Some great stuff there.
