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...

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

ha. are they american? american shoegaze bands take themselves so seriously. i'd bet they were from new york.

Keyboardist has the Gillian Gilbert down cold. I like it.

^ 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.

Sweet Bulbs. They used to be Sweet Bulbs

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.

etc, Saturday, 7 April 2012 22:56 (five years ago) Permalink

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 (five 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

Album also available on vinyl

Bill E, Sunday, 8 April 2012 00:16 (five 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 (five 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

scumulator (electricsound), Sunday, 8 April 2012 08:45 (five years ago) Permalink

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 (five years ago) Permalink

they turned into a jangly powerpop band instead

upset and upsetting (electricsound), Thursday, 20 September 2012 23:26 (five years ago) Permalink

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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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

Very cool! I like it, thanks!

Evan, Friday, 21 September 2012 21:38 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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"

this one:

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

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