I recently got lent Souvlaki by Slowdive which I like very much, and I'm also a Sigur Ros nut who are shoegazey in places. Can anyone reccommend me any similar stuff? As a poor student with an HMV gift card worth £10 I can afford 2 CDs.

I'd recommend the "Treasure" album by Cocteau Twins. They were a huge influence on Sigur Ros, and are really good.

Loveless is definately a must. I'd also say Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy.

shoegaze is, basicly, where it's at.

check out citrus by asobi seksu. not as shoegaze as slowdive or my bloody valentine, but it'll get you there.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I'll go and buy those My Bloody Valentine and Jesus And Mary Chain records next time I'm in town.
