I can never figure out what my favorite Swirlies release is.

There are new vinyl copies of "What To Do About Them" on amazon and new vinyl copies of "They Spent Their Wild Youthful Days..." on ebay for really cheap.

Blonder Tongue is the expensive rare one.

Anyway, I still highly recommend that She, Sir EP I was talking about here. Really great stuff. Not as crazy about the full length.

Wacky Way Lounge (Evan), Thursday, 24 February 2011 18:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

i have been enjoying the she sir EP a lot.

my fave swirlies is the slumberland 45. i think i might have expressed that i consider it among the top ten 45s of the 90s.

Ah yes, but it all appears on "What To Do About Them," along with some other incredible songs.

I've been getting into some shoegazey metal, like Les Discrets

Glad Sennen were at least mentioned. I don't think they sound like Teenage Fanclub.

Sometimes the "metalness" of the band's sound provide a hint of cheesiness, but I really like song. Thats awesome, chap.

Wacky Way Lounge (Evan), Friday, 25 February 2011 16:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

That Sennen song is pretty huge, too.

Wacky Way Lounge (Evan), Friday, 25 February 2011 16:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

Glad you like it, the whole Les Discrets album's pretty amazing.

It's one dude doing everything but the drumming, by the way.

Very cool, I'm going to check out the album.

cosign on Les Discrets

not really feeling the Ringo Deathstarr tunes I've heard -- like, I get it guys, you like MBV a whole fucking lot and can sing like Jim Reid blah blah etc etc. -- do you have ANY original ideas?

has anyone mentioned the Belong album on Kranky? that one's great, bit of a dream pop + drone hybrid w/ bits of 'gaze buried under a MASSIVE cloud of reverb & echo... like hearing an ultrasound of a shoegaze baby in the womb

hmm i'm not sure you 'get' shoegaze? like that's the genre in a nutshell iirc

nah i "get" it, would just prefer any sort of subtle twist on the formula, anything!

Damn this thread seems so....different without ilxor (ilxor), Wednesday, 9 March 2011 22:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

otherwise may as well just listen to MBV, yknow?

nah, i heard that one already

Still sad there's only one Rumskib album, but what an album it is!

Glifted is easily one of the most innovative nu-shoegaze bands I can think of. A lot more loop heavy and trancey shoegaze.

Ringo Deathstarr are now on tour: They're playing the Hexagon in Minneapolis Saturday, which is beyond cool.

trailblazer tape on night-people (also on bandcamp download) has elements of that belong album too. not as interesting, but i dig it

Thanks for the Belong tip, but do these guys have the stupidest website ever?

Noted re all these names. And your current handle here.

alcest?

used to be much more black metal, now almost exclusively shoegazey.

omar little, Thursday, 23 February 2012 08:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Italy's Be Forest is an interesting proposition. They won't persuade non-gazers, but they're a lot better than the also-rans of the 2nd and 3rd generation.

From Be Forest's 2011 album Cold:
Florence
Dust

From their current "Hanged Man" single:
Hanged Man
I.O.

Some videos:
Florence
Hanged Man

The bandcamp link for the album Cold didn't linkify in last post.

Anybody know the deal with this band "Now, Now" that's featured on Spotify today? Girl vocal shoegazey 90's vibe, don't quite get why Spotify would pick it out, though it's good. Not many views of their videos...

dlp9001, Tuesday, 13 March 2012 18:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

New Frankie Rose album, Interstellar, is pretty much shoegaze.

Viva Brother Beyond (ithappens), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 18:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Am listening to the new Whirr album here. It's nice enough if not wildly compelling.

Feebs K-Tel (NickB), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 18:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

Got really stuck into School of Seven Bells 'Ghostory' recently.

Chewshabadoo, Tuesday, 13 March 2012 19:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

Whenever I see any band featured on Spodify, I figure someone's record company has paid to put it there. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Masonic Boom, Tuesday, 13 March 2012 20:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hmmm, a little research reveals that Now, Now is in many ways Tegan & Sara gone shoegaze, which is a great thing to me, but probably a scary thought for most of ILM.

dlp9001, Thursday, 15 March 2012 00:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

not having heard T&S that doesn't mean much to me but i thought the now, now thing sounded nice enough to get off emusic

some crap (electricsound), Thursday, 15 March 2012 00:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

Whirr's debut LP, Pipe Dreams, out March 13, 2012 on Tee Pee.

this is pretty damn good, imo.

I think I've posted about Ghost Society before (maybe in this thread?). Anyway, I just came across this live-in-studio performance from 2012 which is kind of jawdropping. The precision with which Sara Savery does the Liz Fraser-ish vocal bit in the post-chorus is great.
