Who else has listened to this album? One of the best first listens for me. It was seriously incredible the first time, but I didn't really feel the need to replay it much.
The Cherry Wave - Avalancher
>Shoegaze, Noise Rock,
Looking for an album that combines surface shoegaze and postrock (gybe) elements together.
So I wanna make some shoegaze type stuff and I'm trying to figure out how to make a recording sound good and I'm pretty pleased with how the guitars sound, but I'm not into the drum recording. I'm just looking for a second opinion, this isn't a song or anything just kind of a recording test.
guitarist from this band runs guitargeek.com and pretty much invented this whole thing
These are two shoegaze releases from 2015 I totally missed. What does everyone else think of them?
>Helen - The Original Faces (2015)
>Woody Grant - Schizo Spectrum Superstar (2015)

their noise pop cover of, "The Supreme's - You Can't Hurry Love" is fun
Does someone have this album? I remember it was pretty cool dream pop from a peruvian bandcamp. I had it on my HDD but my notebook died and he erased his bandcamp.
It was something like Dreams Never End. Please post it if you have it, i loved that release.
narcotic rock / dream pop / experimental
experimental / shoegaze / ambient / dsbm
Great album, only discovered it from TMT's year-end list though. Liz Harris can do no wrong.
This guy posts in bandcamp threads, I don't think he's very good at what he does. It's an indulgent mess. Restraint is a good thing to have.
I haven't listened to them much at all.
The one I was thinking of literally stole a bass line or 2, I think they used the bassline from "Thorn", it was off of an EP. It was a smaller bandcamp release, maybe 5-6 songs. Not bad sounding, just way too derivative.
Is it blasphemy if I like Elizabeth Color Wheel as much as Don't Ask Why?
Here's some cool post-punk tinged shoegaze from Lebanon that's worth a listen
Check out Ariel - The Battle of Sealand. Great drummer. He's also the drummer in Lightfoils but that's barely a shoegaze band.
Also try Medicine - The Buried Life. Noise pop thats heavy on the rhythm section
I'm waiting until the vinyl comes in the mail to listen to it. Is it good?
Noise pop in general often has a bit of a 50s or 60s throwback sound, whether it's the influence of 60s psych or pop from the 50s or 60s. I'm not sure how to get you a sound just like Woody's cover but I would check out Black Tambourine which sounds like old school pop with a thick layer of guitar fuzz, or Ceremony, particularly their Distance album, which I would say also has kind of a 60s pop/punk vibe along with the obvious shoegaze. Otherwise you're gonna have to go for the new wave of surf/garage rock which definitely pulls from 50s pop (See Peach Kelli Pop, many other Burger Records artists and California girl groups)
Nah, shugazi is practically normiecore these days. Bands like DIIV and Title Fight and Deafheaven are bringing wider audiences to the genre. Hell, 6 or 7 years ago Asobi Seksu was introduced to me by a guy whose favorite band was Sum 41. All these classic shoegaze bands are reuniting lately because there's money to be made from all the indie kids that are looking for alternative-to-alternative subcultural hooks to hang their identity on, and shoegaze is an easy place for their money to land because a lot of it's it's actually really good.
This is fucking great. Anything else that combines noise and shoegaze as perfectly as this?
My favorite so far is the Birds EP
As for best full album...I'm still partial to Rocket Fire.
Distance was good and a nice change of pace but some of the guitar tones on Rocket Fire were siiiiick. That feedback on 'Don't Leave Me Behind'....
