Has anyone else besides me checked out lovesliescrushing?


Honestly, I'm becoming more and mroe obsessed by the week.

"Xuvetyn" is beyond astounding. Did I ever mention the entire album was recorded on a 4 TRACK?!?!?!

Seriously, this is lo-fi shoegaze that sounds like anything but. I still can't believe this entire album was made on a 4 track. It's mind blowing.

It is so ****ing hard to find any complete release by them for download. All I can get is whatever little there is on Youtube -_-

The same goes for so many other great bands (I want those Skywave ep's) ;(

I use Soulseek. And, if that doesn't work, Demonoid usually has what I'm looking for.

By the way, has anyone heard the new track by the Horrors? It's very Shoegaze-y. The beginning really doesn't sound like anything special, but it beuilds up into this huge wall of sound.

It's called "Sea Within a Sea". Check it out on Youtube.
#128
ye Sea Within A Sea is brilliant, never listened to their first album but if the second is gunna be like this then it'll be ace. the song creeps up on you, at first you think it's nothing special then without realising it you're enjoying it immensely. Shortest feeling 8 minute song ever.

I have to say, I wish the beginning didn't drag out so much. The whole opening section seems a little out of place to me. I actually really enjoyed their first release, which was more along the lines of noise-pop/garage rock. I'm excited to see what the new album'll be like , though.
#130
Can somebody recommend me some starter shoegaze? I know about My Bloody Valentines and a couple other obvious ones already, I like what I've heard of this genre so far.

Listen to some Ride, Lush, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, etc. Skim through the list on the first page too and find some other shoegaze you like, too.

Oh and Signal Hill = awesome.
#132
Thanks, I'll check those out.

I hate to keep whoring them, but after your first set of good, long listens, check out lovesliescrushing.

I don't want to make them out to be some kind of "advanced shoegaze" listen, I just don't feel like they're a good starting band. "Xuvetyn" is a masterpiece, IMO.

Probably my #2 favorite shoegaze act. They REALLY took the ambient "Loveless" feel and made it their own unique sound.

Yeah, been enjoying Xuvetyn recently. They really aren't a good "starting band" as you say: there are no songs really and no drums. The pursuit of texture taken to extremes. Nice.

If you like that give "To Kill a Petty Bourgeousie" a listen.
I may have spelled that wrong.

The amount of ethereal atmosphere that is used it literally insane. And I'm STILL having a hard time believing it was all recorded on a four track.


And, will do.

Got Slowdive - Pygmalion on at the moment. Beautiful. Where Dreampop meets electronic techniques - loops etc. all over it.
#137
I listened to To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie.

It was...... alright. I like the vibe, but a lot of it sounds kind of lifeless. There isn't that overwhelming feeling I expect from the genre in most of their songs.

I'll give it a re-listen soon, though.

I actually really, really don't care for the Cocteau Twins. They feel bulky and un-streamlined to me.
#141
^^I don't really like them either. Somehow their ambiguous lyrics annoy me. Not just because I can't understand them but because it almost feels like they're doing it just for the sake of being eccentric. Loko at Tori Amos, she messes with the pronunciation but you still understand the vocals. And I don't care about "making vocals into an instrument". It's weird though because I don't usually care about lyrics at all and never know the words to any song but they (Cocteau) struck a nerve somehow..

This one is very Radiohead-y. They're brilliant.

my favourite Adorable songs

click them


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfHQ-ig2pkA - "Sunshine Smile" - Adorable's debut - easily their most famous song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fR0aL2oYupY - "Lettergo" - one of their mellow songs, wonderful guitar tone, beautiful vocals...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQTpEu71IrM - "Sisting Chapel Ceiling" - not my favourite but it has loads of great moments in it and it's also one of their bigger hits

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkM763Ox-Qw - "Homeboy" - super catchy bassline, one of their poppier songs

now for my two tied favourites:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=getmXlcPT50 - "Breathless" - best song to nap to, it's very moving and one of those spine tingling songs for me >.<
on my hour long journey to school on the bus this song always pops up just at the end of their greatest hits albums as i get off the bus when i've just woken up and i'm still in a big daze lol

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbFpfwrkZ4g - "Cut #2" - the lyrics compliment the rest of the harmony so well here and i just love the climaxes in this song oh lawd this song is amazing

i saw your other thread and decided to check them out. remind me of ride. they're good.

I really don't mind the lyrics. It's just the sound. It doesn't sound "together"enough. It's sort of the type of sound that occurs when the songwriting is left ot a single member of a band: it's bulky, clunky, linear.
#146
Interesting, I'll have a listen for the sake of interstingness.

Yeah they are amazing. The band compromised of a husband and wife if I am not mistaken, however the husband ( K.Anglylus) took his life after an accident meant he couldn't play guitar anymore

I haven't taken A LOT of time to listen to them, but what I listened to on there was good. I'll have to dig deeper.


Also, I think I have finally settled on my favorite shoegaze (or at least shoegaze-esque) moment in any song ever (well, my favorite for now. ).

The huge wall of lush sound near the middle of Sigur Ros' "Saeglopur". That's always been one of my favorite Sigur Ros songs, but the more I listen to it, the more I feel myself slowly drift more and more into its sonic majesty....

Yes, that bit of Saeglopur is some serious tune-age. I think the second half of Ny Batteri counts as a similar moment.

Jesu, anything by them, they defy genre IMO because of his constant redefining, but like with the best shoegaze bands, his music is so emotive, despite being minimalistic at times. I would recommended 'Conqueror' by far his 'poppiest' album, and the best to get you into them. AND my favorite.
