I'd like to be sad but also burst my eardrums what do it do
What are some artists we should be watching out for?
So far, I've thought of No Joy, A Place to Bury Strangers, Ceremony, Whirr, and Have a Nice Life.
I'm hoping we can add a lot to this list.
I didn't enjoy it. None of the guitar effects were interesting, by shoegaze standards, and the songwriting wasn't anything very interesting, as far a I remember. My memory of the album is pretty fuzzy so I might have to revisit it or something, but that's what I thought about it when it came out.

They used to be a great publication in the 90s, but not too much anymore
Does anyone else prefer this album to Grandeur of Hair?
They're just guitar tracks, but w/e
second one is a new version of this:
I think I prefer the overall aesthetic/sound of the old one, however the new recording is more completely from a songwriting standpoint, and I like how the production effects make the open strings sound like a synth/voice. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
nobody talks about this band enough, but they are easily one of the best shoegazey bands of all time. kurt vile ended up playing backing guitar for them during the late nineties when he was just starting out, i thouroughly recommend them
pic related recommend anyone to check this or other releases out
It's like every little detail is so deliberate. Each little percussive glitch snippet seems to add to the music's effect. Like they're not being detailed for the sake of being detailed.
My favorite album is the Asobi Seksu self-titled. It was the album that got me into shoegaze and it quickly became my favorite genre and opened me up to a world of music I never cared to try. They're very special to me.
Is anyone else hyped for the upcoming APTBS?
The pic is actually Blonder Tongue Audio Baton by the band Swirlies. They say they make "sneaky flute" music. I'm not sure what it means.

It's cool that they have a more original sound now, but I liked their pre-Worship stuff music more.
I might be okay with that. Their third album is fantastic too.
They are like the last band I think I would be seriously excited if I heard they are releasing new music. Did you hear that song they released during the summer?
>Did you hear that song they released during the summer
I tried to listen to it not that long ago and it was deleted from soundcloud I think. It's on What though so I'll just download it from there.

Man I wish I hadn't turned in the hat so soon, because the more I listen to this new Diviend album the closer it becomes to my shoegaze AOTY. It just came out so close to the end of the year that I couldn't give it too many listens before 2015. What do you guys think?
huh it probably is just a joke
i wish the goslings were still making music
