    As long as we don't degenerate into shoegaze vs. nu-gaze vs. gaze-core sub-threads, all will be well.

    I'm digging Thousand Yard Stare, thank you!

    Love Spirals Downwards




    Tearwave




    Autumn's Grey Solace

    I'm a fan of LSD, especially the Flux album :yesway:

    This band is brill, they've been inactive for years but hopefully are bringing something new out in the not too distant.
