I need some good recommendations, All other sad, gloomy, atmospheric shit allowed.
This is really good. Thank you anon.
It reminds me of a heavier Memoryhouse
Totally unheard of band, but I know the guitarist so That's how i got into them. They've really matured over the years and are still putting out cool shit. This one of their older releases. Like 2007 I think.
This is one of our old flyers.
Yeah, those were the days. I gave up music to focus on film making and then I joined the military... I did end up making a documentary about the local music scene and Chris from Airs played a vital role. He loaned me some footage he took from different shows. He's credited as a camera operator in the movie.
If you wanna check it out ^
I actually don't know how I feel about Memoryhouse, they have literally so much potential but every song I've heard is just unoriginal and, I don't know, bland? I mean don't get me wrong I still like a good handful of their songs but yea
don't listen to this underage memester

Probably this. Really sparse and very ambient but very dark and gloomy. Not hard to imagine yourself walking through an urban wasteland to this.
Solid list, I would add:
Lovesliescrushing - Bloweyelashwish
Pia Fraus - in Solarium
Kairon; IRSE! - Ujubasajuba
Grooms - Infinity Caller
Candy Claws - Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time
Starflyer 59 - Gold
True Widow - As High As The Highest Heavens
Deerhunter - Microcastle
J Francis to adore is pretty jangly but it's subdued too. It's on bandcamp I think pay what you want.
This is very atmospheric, very noisy and packs the feels with the amazing composition.
The only shoegaze / ambient album that's on Loveless's level.
Seriously everyone needs to listen to pic related
You didn't like Alcest?
That's the appeal of blackgaze for me though. The artistry and ambience of shoegaze with the distortion and aggression of black metal.
New Bermuda is near flawless because of this.
I'll give Alcest another try then, I like a post rock edge ever since hearing Sannhet's Revisionist. Any album in particular?
Also, seeing Deafheaven again at the end of January, couldn't give a shit about Lamb of God.
Ever since I heard Loveless I've been trying to find an album that sounds just like it. Most other shoegaze bands fail to acheive the particular kind of Loveless sound. pic related and Lily's first album are the only albums I've found that come close.
And no, I don't think Lovesliescrushing and Astrobrite sound like Loveless. I mean, yes they do kind of sound like Loveless, but not *just like* it. So don't bother recommending them.
doom/drone/shoegaze. pretty diverse discography.
one of my favorite artists.
I guess I kind of agree with this statement, although it's mainly that a lot of shoegaze seems like it's just trying to be another loveless or just trying to fit into the genre that is shoegaze or something, so they sound uninspired, bland or messy (in a less artistic way, like how garden of delete is messy as hell but it still sounds great due to whatever it is that makes it great, I don't know how to describe it, I guess it just feels like everything is where it should be) in comparison to something less messy xilinsupremes album the first train, which, although I enjoyed a bit it kind of just felt boring, overly messy, or something. there was just something bland about it.
