Album in the OP is Drawing of Sound by Windy and Carl. It's more of an ambient drone albums, but has a lot of shoegazey elements.

Alternative rock played with really high distortion and lots of effects. Usually really loud guitars with incomprehensible vocals all under lots of reverb. My Bloody Valentine is the archetypal band and is generally seen as the originator of the style.
Shoegaze, so named for the motionless and downward-looking performance style of its practitioners, was popularized in the UK between the mid-80s and early 90s. Taking cues mainly from both Dream Pop and Noise Pop, as well as from Neo-Psychedelia and Noise Rock, the typical Shoegaze sound is a wash of instruments blending together. Guitars are typically distorted into droning or feedback drenched textures, and the group itself strives to create a 'wall-of-sound' atmosphere that takes a noisy, distorted approach and/or a lusher, more 'dreamscape' sensation. While vocals and melodies do exist, they are subordinate to the overriding sensation of the song, and melt into the background.
Generally speaking, shoegaze uses a lot of guitar effects to make more powerful, distorted, or droning sounds. Loveless is pretty much the blueprint for shoegaze. So that album probably would give the best idea of it. Still other artists woudl go for excessive noise (Xinlisupreme, The Goslings) while others would try use effects to make softer, much less harsh sounds (Slowdive, Alcest).
Maybe, I did nothing but noise november and now it seems everyone was gearing up to do it for this month. I thought I saw a few threads on it NBDPD though.

>I like how you can combine shoegaze with pretty much every other genre. Dislike how almost everyone think the whole genre is a MBV ripoff-
eh for me its Loveless = m b v > Isn't Anything.
I see Isn't Anything as more of a Post Punk / Noise Pop album than a Shoegaze album. Being a Shoegaze fanboy that puts it behind the other two.
Help me listen to shoegaze. I really liked this style of music, but never knew it was called shoegaze until recently. I liked some Deftones shoegaze stuff and I found Nothing recently. Point me in right deirection mutants.
tl;dr - shoegaze basics.
Is the Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads just the best album or what?
Will I ever find anything more beautiful than this?
AFI? what the hell are you on about that's emo/pop rock.
Shoegaze is Jesu or Les Discrets or >pic related and it's certainly not dead. Bands are still active.
>we're talking about common themes in pop music
no,we're not. we're talking about the specific music genre : shoegaze
>sharing common themes
An emotional state? I can link that with dozens upon dozens of other genres. I don't see why you had to bring AFI. Absolutely unrelated.
>listening to shoegaze created after 1993
I dunno if you guys will like this but it's my 8-bit / shoegaze / noise pop / electronic thing that I made. A lot of people have liked it that didn't think they would based on the description though so who knows?
>not listening cocteay twins with a cute white girl or a cool and cute asian chick or a hispanic girl thats isnt low class and is cute
why even livr
XO - Heart is my AOTY if you haven't listened to it yet, it's pretty great.
>>Your shoegaze project?
I don't know if my project counts as shoegaze but I definitely like layering different fuzz tones and blasts of noise. I hope you guys enjoy, I have some demos up.
I've been on a big Alcian Blue and Bethany Curve kick, where do I go from here?
ill make you a cripple child tonight biitch
Also what's some shoegaze albums that border on noise? Not like it has to be harsh or anything, but more stuff like bloweyelashwish would be cool.
