^ kinda getting kicked around the edges of the shea stadium/2585 brooklyn scene. They used to be under a different name/lineup that I am COMPLETELY blanking on for some reason.

Glad to hear you're liking the Golden Awesome, ESoJ - did you ever hear any of vocalist Stef's work as Stef Animal? Was going to release something on Bachelorette's label about five years ago, but lost the masters - of the bits & pieces that had bobbed around, there was a gorgeous cover of the 3Ds' "Cash None", amongst other things.

i didn't - tbh i can't remember how i tripped over the GA in the first place! do they have any available releases at all?

scumulator (electricsound), Saturday, 7 April 2012 23:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nothing official, sadly. I'll have a fossick around - what I have might be in storage back in NZ, but if not I'll send it your way. Stef was in Dunedin band Mëstar ages ago with John White, too - dreampop bubblegrunge tracks like Secret Garden hold up pretty well imo.

Golden Awesome have an album out on M'Ladys & you can get in here on Bandcamp http://thegoldenawesomenz.bandcamp.com/

Album also available on vinyl

Bill E, Sunday, 8 April 2012 00:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh, wait, Golden Awesome totally have a release out; was meaning Stef Animal =p

M'Ladys connection is via Fi from Coasting IIRC, who used to be in (awesome NZ band) the Coolies.

etc, Sunday, 8 April 2012 08:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah there you go - quite dig coasting too, though their album is a touch more lo-fi than really works for them

young prisms have done their homework on the haircuts but not so much on the music, although i guess they could pass for beach house tribute band on some tracks.

Is/Is is a new shoegazey band from Mpls...the song Death Treat is great

electricsound I just now am checking out the first Big Troubles album. I'm really liking it- but did they go the same direction as Pains of Being Pure at Heart with the second album? Haven't heard it.

Evan, Thursday, 20 September 2012 23:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

they turned into a jangly powerpop band instead

In a good way or bad? Also Freudian Slips is a bit of a blatant Boo Radleys rip.

Evan, Thursday, 20 September 2012 23:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

I also live right next to Ridgewood relatively and am upset I don't get to jam with this whole scene of late 80s early 90s inspired guitar pop lovers (referring to Real Estate and those I've yet to discover). But I don't know what I'd have to do to befriend these people.

Evan, Thursday, 20 September 2012 23:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

a bit

to say the least

i like 'romantic comedy', about a third of it is fantastic, but it doesn't "sound" as nice as its predecessor

upset and upsetting (electricsound), Friday, 21 September 2012 00:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

not a new band, but I'm sad that the Austin, TX band Astroblast has never been mentioned on ilx. tweegaze/Slumberland/Velocity Girl type stuff with lots of keyboards — search their 2003 album This Will Help You on Your Way

Evan, Friday, 21 September 2012 21:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

That's not bad...but what about "harder" stuff? I mean, I like Cable and Isis, which is sort of like art metal but they're kind of shoegazy. Like really LOUD guitars.

Have we mentioned Whirr yet?

Fiendish Doctor Wu (kingfish), Saturday, 22 September 2012 00:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

i thought the whirr album was pretty generic, but there was potential there

Hammock are new to me but lord this is doing it for me right about now:

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 17 October 2012 19:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Neat. Hammock's past work has been largely instrumental which placed it in the post-rock continuum, but I always thought they should bring in a vocalist.

From 2009:

They were on one of those shoegaze cover compilations in the mid 2000s - Never Lose That Feeling album if I am remembering correctly. They covered "Black Metallic"

van smack, Wednesday, 17 October 2012 20:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Which reminds me, David Altobelli's videos for Hammock may be the most poignant, beautiful indie music videos I've ever seen.

just wanted to say this Hammock album is incredible

Knew you would love it.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 26 October 2012 18:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

"(Let's Kiss) While the Stars are All Falling Down" has been on repeat for a while now.

haha that's exactly the song that was playing which prompted me to post to this thread

Okay, another one here, from Bristol, and they have a lot to choose from:

http://soundcloud.com/stumbleineuk

Very much on the neoelectrogaze tip, plus flecks of ethereal r'n'b (but this isn't How to Dress Well etc. if that's your concern). And they're named after a Smashing Pumpkins song, of COURSE I like 'em.

not totally shoegaze but lots of gauzy guitars and dreaminess

Pony Trash from Mpls, kind of like crazy horse/the chills/the church in a blender, slick basslines too

would the besnard lakes fall into this category?

Need emphasis:

"We are not rock," shouted back frontman Blixa Bargeld. "We are shoegaze; look at your fucking shoes!"

that article was pretty bad in a couple of ways

wee waa nee (electricsound), Friday, 12 April 2013 22:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

My Bloody Valentine, grandaddies of 'gaze, finally release the album they started 17 years ago and suddenly, somehow, along comes a massive wang of new bands sounding like music's equivalent of mumblecore

followed by a list of bands some of which have been around for five years or more

"It was when 'shoegaze' was given as a genre option on MySpace that it became acceptable to label your music in that way,"

holy shit this is piffle

No Joy's Wait To Pleasure (April 23) gets the advance streaming treatment on Pitchfork this week.

I think thisthreaders will find much to like.

I've been sort of meaning to pick up the Half String reissue 2xLP thing on CT for awhile now. Do you have that?

Of course. I had all the ipr stuff anyway but the extra tracks were cool

Finally got around to listening to their new album after seeing them at Austin Psych Fest, and yeah - they fall into this. This is the most Slowdivey thing I've heard in years
