A Place to bury strangers should be added.


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

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?
#44
The Pyramids I was talking was the one who just released their debut album this year on Hydra Head records.

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.
#49
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.

would you consider bands like silversun pickups or autolux more of present day shoegaze?

i enjoy both bands but don't really know if they would qualify


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.
#56
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...
#57
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.
#58
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!
Counter Point: I go home and jerk off.

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.

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.
#69
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.
Oct. 20th, 2009: New guitar AND front row for Mars Volta.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Lush's album "Split".

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

some bands that deserve to be on the list,

old stuff; blind mr jones, the darkside, eternal (christian savill's pre slowdive band), house of love, kitchens of distinction, secret shine, spaceman 3

and some new stuff; airiel, astral, depreciation guild, highspire, morning after girls, the pains of being pure at heart, skywave
#72
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?

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!

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.

Yeah, I consider Silversun Pickups as modern shoegaze.

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.
