hey guys are we still doing that magpie flowchart
GUISE! I figured out how to turn all your non shoegaze music into shoegazing.
Just take a pair of bad headphones (or in this case goo) like the pic and blow them out so you get even more distortion. All your non shoegaze will be genuine shoegaze in seconds!
Keeping looking at the ground guys and always remember to mumble
Don't worry, this happens a lot
A Place to Bury Strangers - Transfixiation 
>Noise Rock, Shoegaze, Post-Punk,
Asobi Seksu x Boris - Asobi Seksu x Boris
>Shoegaze, Dream Pop,
I've never listened to music classified as shoegaze, but I listen to wild nothing and other similar artists and yet have heard none of these other artists. Are you sure you have this band listed correctly?
Pretty much every shoegaze release that isn't by MBV, Slowdive, or Ride gets underrated. The Invisible Man is such a bizarre track I love it. Need to get around to listening to Spooky when I can.
I'm a noob and I really really like the (prepare for the worst explanation ever) slow and bass heavy sound of Souvlaki, as opposed to the dense sound of Loveless I guess? Especially Space Station and When The Sun Hits. Anyone got any recommendations?
More like this? Or any shoegaze that's not typical rock song shoegaze but something more complex and artistic?
This right here is literally art gallery-core. This as abstract and artistic it gets.
It's not even really shoegaze, it's just really shoegaze influenced electro-acoustic.
Do you guys consider sludgegaze a legit thing? What's the best example of it?
psychedelic is spelled wrong on this chart
also i think the little descriptions of the first 3 albums should be brought back for new listeners to decide what they want first (iirc it was like noisey, wall of sound, dense and layered for loveless, dreamy and spacey for souvlaki, and alt rocky/genre mixing for nowhere).
Nah I'm thinking more like shoegaze-y atmosludge. Last.fm has a tag for it but there isn't much http://www.last.fm/tag/sludgegaze. They call the Goslings sludgegaze and I'm not sure how accurate that is
Was poking around Graveface looking for something from Whirr and came across this:
I'll try again because last thread died when i asked this so
I enjoyed this album a lot but the noisier opener was absolutely my favourite song on the album. Is there anything more like it, instrumental or not?
as someone who lurks both generals I can say that white noise/ambient isnt looked down upon as it once was, in fact if you go in there right now and ask for a chart there may be someone in there who can post it for ya, I unfortunately do not have it saved
Thank you guys for the flowchart, It's really well done. I'm loving this a lot right now.
What do you guys think of Swervedriver and their new album?
What would you write instead? Psychadelic pop isn't a great link there, but boces sounds shoegazy
It's on my chart
Glad! That album rocks.
Man I should put this on the chart maybe, haven't listened to this in a while though
Don't act like I'm an expert finding hidden gems or anything I find most of my stuff on here anyway
Someone mentioned another of Pastel Blue's albums here, and I just started listening to them, but holy shit this is great already, can't wait to listen to all of it.
you aren't me but those are good albums either way. Have you listened to L.I.B.R.A. EP by Hartfield? Didn't really like it but I'm curious as to what other people think of it.
far worse imo... check it out though I've heard people talk abot true color true lie a lot but never the EP, maybe because it's not as good.
Swervedriver is coming, just fucking hate their sound idk why and probably just blocked it out. Mezcal head should be somewhere though, where should I slot it in? Not much space...
I have never heard a seefeel album I will get on that too.
A.R. Kane? Excuse me this is a shoegaze chart.
also I'm not OP
Similar artwork, but no. It's very shoegaze. I'm not a huge fan of Galaxie 500 can someone let me in about what there is to like about them? Maybe specific songs?
I like those very much
Alright I'm at the level after listening to these I can understand the appeal. It might not necessarily appeal to me, but I think with enough listening I could like it more. These were good song choices.
Just put pic related on and I don't like the vocals (I used to listen to screamo a lot). Is there anything on the list with actually good vocals?
Hey guys, what have you been listening to lately?
seemed dark to me, the vocals especially. It almost seems exasperated. It's got some harder guitar riffs too which I would place it in the darker region with shoegaze which is generally more happy anyway. I guess it comes down to opinion. I'm trying to force connections often where they don't really exist as well as in other places so people have kind of an idea what to listen to next if they liked it. I'd imagine someone who likes this would enjoy something sad too, is all.
I'm just running out of space is all. I might try and shoehorn it in. Thanks for your suggestion.
the nasa album is not space sounds
its recordings of waveforms/frequencies (that arent soundwaves) made on space. That then were converted to sound just by assuming those waves/frequencies were sound ones (a thing they arent).
Then the artist got those sounds and applied effects on it to make it a sound.
if you remove the effects part the closest artist from this type of "space sound" is
Hobetbte Ha Borpocbl
I think this album should definitely be on that flowchart
i'm open for suggestions!
they sure are on the post-bm side of the spectrum. the chart is quite broad so it touches on a few different aspects of blackgaze. like >>54729840 said the newest lantlos is on the postrock side and the mantle is probably mostly folk metal. i tried to give a few different perspectives on the genre with this chart though.
again, definitely open for suggestions or additions
Currently hooked on Whirr and looking to acquire a couple of their physical releases. I read the other day that they would be touring in April, but I won't be able to go. The worst part is, in a year I will probably be a stone's throw away from one of their destinations, but they're all to far from me right now.
I discovered Nothing long before I discovered these threads. I liked them then, and I like them even more now. Probably won't get to see them for a while either.
Sometimes living in Bumfuckistan sucks.
I'm not complaining about the flow chart, and I may have missed them, but I think people should check out My Dead Girlfriend if they like Shoegaze. It's just a suggestion
I bought Distressor on vinyl when I saw them and it's great even though the lacks Nichole Kidman. When I saw Nothing, I bought their split release with Whirr and that's great as well.
Don't worry, anon. One day you will experience the greatness of Whirr.
I think Whirr is the best nugaze band going on right now.
Nothing is pretty boring IMO. If anyone here likes hardcore, their vocalist was in a band called Horror Show before he went to jail for stabbing someone. Really good stuff, definitely prefer them to Nothing.
Reposting cuz I'm an attention whore - which albums should I be excited for?
If someone were to ask me to define shoegaze, Whirr would be one of the first artists I would recommend. Right now I'm undecided on which to get first - Distressor, Sway, or Guilty of Everything.
Not even close. Their nearest stop is somewhere in Texas, and that's several hours' drive from here. Flying is out of the question.
>tfw tour is announced on my birthday and I can't make it
A lot of those I haven't played myself just yet. From my notes:
>Whirlpool: even better the second time
>Heaven's End: so-so
>In the Presence of Nothing: neat but kinda droney
>The Comforts of Madness: pretty good
>Drop You Vivid Colours: interesting
>bloweyelashwish: makes good background music
>how do i even catalog them digitally?
Haha, never thought about it that way, but you're right. That's caused me problems too.
Who cares mate it's a joke
I know they're not there, I like this band, I'm just keeping it more essential stuff, you know? I could probably put it in the japanese section, but eh.
>Psychocandy similar to Boces
Other than that, solid chart.
If you think about it in a sense of them both being noisey pop albums then yeah I guess it works.
But I think bands like Astrobite and Goslings owe more to JAMC and sound more like their type of noise than Mercury Rev.
Looks like that's the one I'll be going with - in the end I rolled a die to decide. I kept rolling Guilty of Everything again and again. Did you get it from Relapse or from somewhere else?
Skip to 17 minutes 52 seconds in, or just copy and paste this link in your URL, and watch.
Just try to tell me she isn't the most qt shoegazer ever, with those teeth and that awkward smile, I dare ya.
>I am a Lake of Burning Orchids - Summer in My Veins

Heaven or Las Vegas is clearly labeled dream pop as a compass to look into something else. That's why Boces and Pulse Demon are on there.
Psychocandy is shoegaze, just listen to the second track, and it's a major influence on the scene.
Look how many albums are on there and how many were suggested in this thread. I'm not adding more that aren't shoegaze, sorry.
fuck I suck
Sometimes I wish there would be bands made specifically to rip off bands that haven't made enough music.
I guess that's kind of what a lot of shoegaze bands are, but there needs to be more stuff like Xinlisupreme is what I'm saying.
A.R Kane are clearly shoegaze though, even if they experiment with it alot. Just listen to Up! and Lolita EP. Also, they literally coined the term dream-pop so they have huge historical value.
