    Are you sure that you're listening to the same album?

    Yeah, it's a bonus track I just realized.

    some fantastic recs here bros, and plenty I haven't heard of before. Shoegaze is probably my favourite genre aside from thrash/death/doom/etc, although I'm a sucker for the more out there strains of it- I love it when it's molten guitar noise or just divine, floaty ambient, as opposed to indie rock with more reverb.

    Allow me to suggest a few of my own recs- apologies if a few have already been posted:




    TAP are a ridiculously good band; probs my favourite of all time. Crushingly heavy and crushingly beautiful. The whole album and the one before are godly.



    The first four minutes are, well. I don't really know how to describe it without using a bunch of very pretentious metaphors.


    Now expecting people to listen to a 20 minute long song is asking a lot.. But this song is ridiculous! Just builds and builds and builds. Womb warm and ridiculously good. These guys have a massive discog but I'm pretty knowledgable/borderling autistic about them so hit me up if you want more :)

    Finally, something gentler


    Getting into winter here, it's a seasonal listen but pretty perfect nonetheless.

    I've just gotten into early flying saucer attack too, my god that is amazing ..... FInally, good to see some Hammock love- I honestly find them rather pretentious and only really like one album (departure songs) but maaaan is it one killer album. Four odd years of thrashing it and it still holds up!

    Edit: I have a few more million recs but will try to spread them apart as having 45000 youtube vids in one post is a bit intimidating.

    I'm a big fan of Landing's "Wave Lair" and Nadja's "Queller", but have never ventured further into their discographies.

    Re: Landing, well I'd say Circuit is my favourite by a mile, but all their early stuff is pretty awesome IMO. Just that dreamy lo-fi feel to it all. If pushed I'd rank it as circuit/oceanless/seasons. Their newer stuff is pretty great too, I'm just not sold on the drum machines and the like.

    Nadja, meanwhile, has this period (give it a look on metal archives) where pretty much everything from Bodycage to Corrasion 2007 is super super rad, the stuff before hand being lo-fi and fairly average.. The stuff after is great but there's a few more stinkers here and there.

    If pushed I'd rec Touched 2007, Truth Becomes Death and Bungled and the Botched. Christ Send Light is probably the most straight out shoegazey release he's ever done and it's pretty fantastic.

    Any love out there for Black Earth by Implodes? Probably as much kraut as it is shoegaze, but there's definitely some MBV-isms hidden beneath the mire.

    Fans of Bloody Knives will love this:


    GREAT album, surprisingly very organic for Noise Rock :yesway::yesway: I would have bought the LP if it were still available :(

    Curve? Is that you??



    So much youthful energy <3



    Angelic vocals with lots of distortion.



    Something about this gives me some serious Smiths/Kitchens of Distinction vibes.



    How did I miss new FILM SCHOOL earlier this year?!






    Consistently mid-tempo; the wall of sound will slowly drown you.

    that omega vague is pretty decent- it's basically like Jesu discovered a reverb pedal, but there's nothing particularly wrong with that.

    No idea if it's allowed or not but my band does some shoegaze/post rock stuff: https://strangercountry.bandcamp.com/track/no-one-else

    Some new stuff I am discovering upon catching up with people's "best of 2016" lists...

    BlackGaze/Electronic, AOTY contender...




    A little more Synth Pop/New Wave influenced...


    Skip ahead 0:20 to the music (video intro :spock:). Extra distortion featuring violin...

    Great song by a local band (Cleveland) called Nights. Very early Smashing Pumpkins sounding.

    some resemblance? sounds like someone added vocals over a Smashing Pumpkins instrumental. Still sounding kinda cool though.
