You might like to check out some of the cassette-only releases on the Best Kept Secret label.

you'd probably like Readymade too.

Readymade isn't exactly new. They were sending out annoying promo stuff 6/7 years ago.

Readymade's latest album, 'On Point and Red', is wonderful for this. Also, a Seattle band called The Melody Unit, who definitely take the dream-pop side, but are wonderful. Look into their 7-minute songs, 'April New Year' and 'Suite for Caesar', but really, their entire 'Choose Your Own Adventure' album.

didnt like Yellow6 at all.

neither do i to be honest, although a couple of their early singles are quite nice

the Words On Music label is leaning towards the shoegaze/dreampop thing as well. they released the excellent Fiel Garvie album

M83 is like Air in a shoegazer poncho. Even if their site keeps crashing (it has a buggy fake DOS interface) -- c'mon, you owe it to the hypnotic nerve centers to figure something out. Their Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts has hit this encroaching winter for me on all levels.

The Meeting Places as well...reasonable enough rotegaze.

M83, now lemme tell ya, I guess I enjoyed the album the one time I heard it, but that was six months ago and I haven't felt any need to listen again.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 14 December 2003 23:53 (11 years ago) Permalink

words on music is supposed to release that comp with a bunch of bands all covering 'outdoor miner'. i wonder when that will see the light of day. Motion Picture is pretty dull, I haven't heard anything else on the label. oh wait, i've heard Coastal and they were dreary and uninspiring.

keith m (keithmcl), Monday, 15 December 2003 00:08 (11 years ago) Permalink

i like Coastal and i looove Should. i'm quite keen to hear the new For Against too. quite a few of the albums on WoM are on eBay for $8 apiece brand new (it's the label owner selling them)

the surface noise (electricsound), Monday, 15 December 2003 00:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

The Ides of Space, I guess.

Everyone should hear the new For Against.

sydney band Tides are quite gazey, and their demo EP promises very much.

did should used to be called shift? i liked them, fortunate hazel made me a tape a long time ago.

Ulrich Schnauss seconded - A Strangely Isolated Place is fab.

Also Trespassers William, whose cover of Ride's "Vapour Trail" is gorgeous and a fair sign of how they sound in general.

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Monday, 15 December 2003 15:53 (11 years ago) Permalink

Monster Movie. Former Slowdive folks. Gorgeous. "Last Night I Dreamt Something Happened" is, I think, the name of their full-length. They have a self-titled 5 track EP that is AMAZING and a split single with Dreamend that is nice too. Seek!

Ben Boyer (Ben Boyer), Monday, 15 December 2003 17:19 (11 years ago) Permalink

a band called Charlene put out an extremely kick-ass s/t shoegazing record this year. They're from Boston, they opened for that heinous Mark Gardner solo tour.

dieblucasdie (dieblucasdie), Monday, 15 December 2003 19:21 (11 years ago) Permalink

wussom*pow!, from san francisco, who have one album out, have a really nice twee/shoegaze crossover thing going on.

Holy shite, that Malory's debut album, Not Here Not Now, is nothing short of magnificent. Is it still out of print? Does anyone know if it'll be rereleased? It needs to.

desolert (desolate), Monday, 15 December 2003 19:42 (11 years ago) Permalink

Hot damn, I've just been listening to Chapterhouse's Pearl, and it still seems almost as lovely as when I first heard it back in '91. S'gotta be the version with Rachel Slowdive's backing vox, though. Mmm. What a babe. Hey, has anybody got a scan of that NME poster of her dressed as Rambo?

Palomino (Palomino), Monday, 15 December 2003 20:42 (11 years ago) Permalink

clairecords are planning to reissue Malory's debut in the new year

the surface noise (electricsound), Monday, 15 December 2003 21:02 (11 years ago) Permalink

Does any remember Autohaze? Mostly released through Summershine out of Australia. More neo-rock/folk but blow me away everytime I hear Hey!

cs appleby (cs appleby), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:06 (11 years ago) Permalink

i remember them very well. released three great-to-fantastic singles and a lovely mini-album before drowning in a pit of dull Neil Youngisms.

the surface noise (electricsound), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

their debut single (along with much released on Summershine) is one of melbourne's proudest moments

the surface noise (electricsound), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:10 (11 years ago) Permalink

Thank you. They are one of my favorite bands EVER.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:36 (11 years ago) Permalink

interesting! are you familiar with the summershine catalogue in its entirety? i was in the right place at the right time and have everything jason released.

the surface noise (electricsound), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:38 (11 years ago) Permalink

I always wanted to be more interested with the label. The few I heard I cannot really pull back into memory but I would always love to get re-aquainted. I really was a Autohaze freak. What else do you have to offer Mr. Surface?

cs appleby (cs appleby), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:44 (11 years ago) Permalink

if we're talking about australian stuff specifically, the Afterglow "fall behind" 7" is a corker (and the only good thing they ever did). all the Jupiter stuff is great (and all compiled on the "Arum" CD). anything by the Earthmen that summershine released is pretty good stuff too, although that veers into standard indierock in the later stuff.

the surface noise (electricsound), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:48 (11 years ago) Permalink

I'll find em.

Someone has to say: nugaze.

Rockist Scientist (rockistscientist), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:55 (11 years ago) Permalink

also the Truck Train Tractor 45 is the second best record released by an Adelaide band (the best being "More Than Happy" by the Mandelbrot Set, which is without doubt the best dreampop record Australia ever produced)

the surface noise (electricsound), Tuesday, 16 December 2003 04:55 (11 years ago) Permalink

Nu-gaze. Im workin on it.

I agree with whoever said "fucking clairecords people"!

Clairecords is the biggest shoegaze label out there at the moment, or for the past 5 years for that matter. They also run Tonevendor, the biggest mailorder for the related genres. Just look at some of the bands they've released.

Monster Movie (ex-slowdive)
Astrobrite (loveliescrushing)
The Ecstasy of St. Theresa
Stella Luna
Electro Group
Con Dolore
Pia Fraus
Air Formation

You want bands not on Claire?

Ulrich Schnauss
the Meeting Places
Experimental Aircraft
the Emerald Down
Alcian Blue
Bethany Curve
Voyager 1

That's just about everyone you need to know that's been doing good shoegaze type stuff over the past 5 years.

Valerie Kessig, Tuesday, 20 April 2004 12:17 (10 years ago) Permalink

Appreciated, Valerie...but just about all those bands were mentioned one way or another already. ;-)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 13:25 (10 years ago) Permalink

I was pretty pumped about checking out all the Claire Records bands, but god, most of them turned out to be dull. In the end, Mahogany is about the only one of the bunch I find truly memorable (oh, maybe Paik or Malory). And so, I'm not at all expecting to be let down by the next Mahogany album when it finally comes out after about a two year delay.

Curt (cgould), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 14:36 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skywave deserve to get mentioned again & again. mix bits of J&MC and live MBV and Ride and Motorhead and actually give them melodies and off you go.

they have some samples here which i cannot understate how much they should be listened to.

Kingfish Disraeli (Kingfish), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 15:05 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skywave is a good band. They're the real heirs to the Psychocandy throne, not BRMC.

I really like Ulrich Schnauss. Electro IDM-ish shoegaze.

Highspire's currently my favorite out of the bunch. Their new cd is really great. I find myself humming some of their hooks a lot.

I find Bethany Curve and Voyager 1 a bit to inaccessible for my tastes. Good music to go to sleep to though.

Valerie Kessig, Tuesday, 20 April 2004 15:53 (10 years ago) Permalink

new NYC band Psychic Ills aren't far off...

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 17:32 (10 years ago) Permalink

Please don't call Coldplay shoegazer. They're not. They don't have the wall of fuzzy sound, the vocals buried way underneath, and almost more importantly, you don't have to struggle to understand the lyrics. I have nothing against Coldplay, but please...

I think shoegaze is a pretty boring concept nowadays (I went to this gig a few years ago where they gave out this compilation CD of lots of new shoegazer bands and they all sucked) but I did like the last Voyager One album "Monster Zero".

bimble (bimble), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 18:21 (10 years ago) Permalink

Voyager One is actually one of the more 'eh okay' bands to my ears, but I haven't heard the album in a while.

There's a decent shoegaze band from Montreal called "Marlowe".

daavid (daavid), Tuesday, 20 April 2004 21:49 (10 years ago) Permalink

Curt: i think it's fair to say that Mahogany, Malory and Paik are the top of the Claire heap... but i like their "sound" so much that i end up enjoying everything they put out anyway.

For Against are SO underrated..

Stargazer Lilies sound pretty good. Didn't realise they were a followup after Soundpool.

Still hoping to hear a dreampop band with ambitious symphonic structures.

really enjoying the pinkshinyultrablast album. not a shred of anything new or original really but it does sound very lovely

i cant really find a thread where ppl talked about whirr except this one so excuse the derail

being contacted about booking whirr - not sure what all was up with that whole shitstorm except that they made fun of a dude for having the last name "lemmon" and called people pussies a lot. was there a lot of homophobia or sexism going down? should i avoid these ppl?
