Eh, I'm tired, idk how much sense that made, but sleep deprivation is a hell of a feel...
I met some guys who listen to shoogays and they want me to play guitar in their band. I have a bunch of pedals, but haven't done anything unique with any of the sounds yet... I mostly just use the chorus, reverb, fuzzes and distortions, the rest I got as gifts and never knew what do do with. Can I get reverse reverb from my dd-6, or is that a rumor?

Anyone got any recs for cool shoegaze-y sounds I could get out of these?
ocean themed catchy shoegaze / noise pop video to go with OP
seriously, it bugs me more than it should how little mention this band gets here
Yeah, thats why I need to ask. The shoegazer pedal + reverb pedal turned up all the way on acoustic simulator is ===== to JAMC sound. Can't get the MBV sound for anything but 'When You Sleep', and even still, I think it could be more authentic. Might get rid of unused pedals and trade for ones I need. Recs?
I guess I have to play with the levels of each - I try that and it just sounds like garbage, not even artfully sucky, just feedback-y. I think I might sell my 150 wt. Marshall for a more portable 75 watt Orange or something too, maybe someone will pay more than I bought it for haha
Still taking more recs for sound ideas if anybody minds giving them. Not looking to jack anybody's sound, but just wanna hear what has shoegazy potential with my rig.
if you want the plebest of pleb tones do this.
get a few nice delay pedals with all the frills like reverse, crazy delay settings, etc. get some cool panning from some phaser or something get a reverse reverb/a ton of reverb. use your whammy/tremolo bar to play and play with the pitch, along with the rhythm of your delay. and get a bunch of experimental BS, whether its a basic little sampler or looping pedal, to add uniqueness. Also, really focus on your distortion tone because its important. you dont want a metal-like gain sound, and you really dont want the generic lo fi indie fuzz either. From my experience clean/dream pop sounds are ust basic reverb/delay/chorus, blah blah
you can do a lot with basic pedals too, but most of the sound comes from toying with what you have and creating unique textures or timbre or whatever

Would anyone consider some of the more black metal inspired parts shoegaze?
I never know what to post... I feel like all the shoegaze bands I listen too have been around long enough that you all know them...

I can't tell if it's related or not, but does anyone else think that the intro on After Forever sounds like some shit Ride would make?
Does anyone else hear this?
one guy recommended me Paysage d'Hiver saying they should be considered blackgaze because they put a huge focus on texture. I guess people call them atmospheric black metal though
that's good enough, i think those pretty much fall within each other. like i'd say the sounds on burzums filosofem has many borderline shoegaze elements, and it's obviously atmospheric like most black metal tends to be anyways
You got that right anon, sometimes sleep deprivation just makes you feel like shit: you feel week and tired and sometimes get flu like symptoms, but times like you described are what I love sleep deprivation for, when you break through and lose yourself in a haze

Thoughts on this shoegaze album? They've got another collab album coming up with Efferat.
last 2 also have a post-punk vibe
I'm listening to this for the first time right now and it's feeling like a breathier, less melancholic, more drug-fueled Sweet Trip during their third album.
Andy and Mark from Ride are kicking off the reunion tonight with an acoustic show. Pretty hyped to see what songs they play.
So what are the best, dreamy shoegaze albums? Loveless is obvious, and I really like Pinkshinyultrablast's Everything Else Matters.
I really love these threads since I'm wanting to make shoegaze my main genre, I love it so much.
The Chameleon's discog
The Radio Dept's discog
Wild Nothing's discog
A.R. Kane's discog
Cocteau Twins discog
Also Nearfield by Closedown, really underrated.
I like that's it's an ambitious shoegaze album, but it isn't really that good.
