Melodic, Aggressive Shoegaze?


#41

Maybe some Bailter Space would qualify?


#42

the best Jesu album is the self-titled.


#43

....Dinosaur Jr?


#44

I saw Bailter Space once. Early 90's at the now defunct Mauretania in Bristol. They were great.


#45

Same here. Some delicious guitar sounds on this bad boy.


#46

Oops got the name wrong - Heartache was the big EP wasn't it... that was the first release. I meant S/T in the comment above...


#47

I think my picks have all been mentioned, so I second Jesu (especially the first two LPs and the Silver EP), Cheatahs, Spectres and Title Fight's latest one.

uploading for posterity


#49

brilliant chart, is there a version with better resolution on the text?


#50


Is this better?


#51

Definitely readable - thanks! I shall put this on my wall and make it required family reading...


#52

his best work is on the EPs (with the exception of Heartache, which may as well be an album). I find his albums to be a total slog.


#53

I love that album, however I think their second album 'Mythologies' is possibly better


#54

Yeah, Cheatahs are really good, they should get more attention. The first album grabbed me right away and has kept getting better, while the second one took a lot more time initially but now I love it too. It's a pretty unique and abstract album, definitely not what I was expecting as a follow up. The last song in particular is fantastic.


#55

I'm going to be listening to them loads over the next few weeks, I think. They remind me of a more rocking Lotus Plaza in a strange way.


#56

#57

Oathbreaker have elements of shoegaze.


#58

Must try the second one, loved the first but was put off by reviews of the second.


#59

Melodic, but not as heavy is Elliott out of Swirlies new band who I didn't even know existed til today. Even though he was bassist late on (after their classic stuff, this is pretty Swirlies-esque):


#60

I bought and loved the first Cheatahs releases (singles), then forgot about them. I need to revamp my MP3 player this weekend and catch up with a lot of stuff.
