My shoegaze project sucks. The clean bass occupies the high end, only one guitar with effects, and our drummer is shit

post the shit
>>
>>53029982
this one reminds me a lot about how lo fi skywave was, the noise really adds a lot of grit to the sloppy punk playing.

>>53028862
That russian album was bretty good. Anything else from 2015?

>>
>>53032745
Okay cheers. 2014 for me was a shit year in music so hopefully this starts 2015 well.
>>
>>53032805
There were some cool albums man. What were your favourite ones?
>>
>>53032839
The only ones I really got into were Clark's new album and the two releases from Geotic. Shelling and Astronaught Husband was pretty good too.

>Favorite/Least favorite albums?
MBV - Loveless
>Favorite/Least favorite bands?
All the classic 90's british shoegaze bands
>Your shoegaze project?
I occasionally run the reverb up to 100 on my interface and lotsa gain
>What have you been listening to recently?
Beach House, the opposite of shoegaze
>Shoegaze AOTYs?
None at the moment
>(Worst) shoegaze AOTYs?
That one Ride album no one likes
>Any upcoming shoegaze you're looking forward to?
Whatever No Joy puts out
>Shares?
nada
>Things you like/dislike about the style shoegaze as a whole?
Lack of diversity in sound and style
>>
>>53032919
I see. I liked Clark's, but Syro and Flatland were better for me in the electronic category.
Haven't listened to Geotic though.

Personal fav from 2014 was Ichiko aoba's 0%.
>>
Am I a criminal if I only enjoy this type of music if the singers are only female?
>>
>>53033020
nope a lot of the dudes have annoying voices like ride, also the high pitched sound better fits the music anyway, if it was a woman with a deeper voice it wouldn't work as well either
>>
>>53033077
Then why did you include tons of albums with annoying faggot male vocals in your image?
>>
My Bloody Valentine is playing in Paris in march. I think they will release a new ep
>>
>>53028862
Please rec me some CLEARLY shoegaze album
>my bloody valentine - shoegaze+noise rock
>slowdive - ambient
>psychocandy - noise pop
>swirlies - noise-rock
>>
>>53033153
I still like them though :) I think the annoying voices can be charming, I'm just saying it's not terrible to dislike it. Also, that's not my favorite shoegaze albums in the chart, it's just some of the most popular ones to get acquainted with some of the most influential and most popular shoegaze music
>>
>>53033153
He hasn't listened to them

>>53033289
I've listened to all of them. I prefer female vocals, but I still dig some male vocals too. I don't like all of those albums anyway, it's a chart for influential and popular shoegaze albums not necessarily my favorites, if you have a suggestion for change let me know. swervedriver is one of my least favorite shoegaze bands but it's still up there for example

It doesn't have the most interesting soundscapes or the thickest noise, but it's well played, and it's aggressive. I'd give it a good 7/10.

The Besnard Lakes are tracking drums for their next album.

It's coming. This year.
>>
>>53035792
kevin shield's brother was on their previous album.
>>
>>53035792
The first half of the last track on that album reminds me of like foxing or the brave little abacus type stuff almost. i haven't heard a shoegaze album which this much of a focus on songwriting

When I was 17 or so I was walking home when I heard a band playing in this basement, I hung outside for a minute and listened and 2 dudes came out and talked to me. One of them said he played drums and said the band name was Ringo Deathstarr
Not sure if they were fucking with me, if they didn't know Ringo Deathstarr was a band already, or if I met those dudes.
>>
Disappears new album is great. Not really shoegaze, more of noisy psych rock/post-punk, but still one of my favorite releases this year.

So what are you guy's thoughts on this?
I just love how slow and expansive they keep all the songs, really gives me the time to just appreciate the heaviness and the noise.

do you live in texas?

New Cloakroom is pretty good.

I feel like I haven't heard enough people discuss that Ceremony EP that drop a while ago. I'm really loving the sound they've been going with for the last couple releases. Usually, I'm not that into Ceremony, they can get a little too poppy for me, and some of the lyrics are pretty bad, even now, but man, they're sounding lo-fi, their guitars are noisy, they're keeping it high-energy, It's really great.

>>53036346
I don't even know who the fuck that is, but they're like psychedelic punk or something? Sounds pretty interesting, what's the album like?

Kevin shields has a pretty good voice. And in Isn't Anything it verges on androgynous on a lot of tracks
>>
>>53039365
Thx this is alright.
>>
>>53039463
I actually don't like the vocals on Isn't Anything as much as the ones on Loveless. With Loveless, the vocals sort of add to the mood and atmosphere, and I felt it kind of did the opposite on Isn't Anything.

What's the best Astrobrite album? I don't think I gave them a fair chance.

I'm mostly sick of all these limp-dicked indie bands trying to do dream pop like Beach House, School of Seven Bells, etc. I need something better.
>>
This is one of the few albums that I think is worthwhile in the shoegaze/dream pop sphere.

But does anyone else think it sometimes sounds like shit? Just really muddy and low quality.
>>
>>53037183
Well that's the point you start looking for other genres where the sound of shoegaze and noise are embraced.
>>53039563
pinkyshinyultrablast starts out with their best and catchiest bits, then ascends to mediocrity about 4 tracks in
whitenoisesuperstar was their most sonically pleasing for me, but rather bland on composition
>>
>>53039563
My opinion:
Whitenoise Superstar > Pinkshinyultrablast > Super Crush > One Hit Wonder > Crush > All The Stars Will Fall > Boombox Supernova

Astrobrite is pretty heavy on the ambient-ish stuff though if you consider that limp-dicky. But damn he brings the noise with it. Also, whitenoise superstar is pretty unconventional, if you want something more straightforward I'd go directly to pinkshiny.
>>
>>53035792
this might be the best album ever
>>
hows the new pinkshinyultrablast album?
>>
>>53031291
could somebody filter out everything that is essentially bad rock music with a shoegaze flavour for me.
i dont think i heard any good shoegaze out of mucore other than astrobrite and honeyrain
