Melodic, Aggressive Shoegaze?


#61

Why have I spent so many years of my life not listening to Alcest? Appreciate this thread, gonna check out Cheetahs next.


#62

If you dig this side of Jesu you should absolutely check out Iroha (featuring members of Jesu and another Broderick project, Final):

And maybe some Lantlos:


#63

How about Backwater? Not sure I'd call them shoegaze exactly but their album was a great mixture of melodic and discordant guitars.

And my personal favourite shoegaze fellow travellers, Ecstacy of St Teresa. (sound takes a while to start)


#64

that Lantlos album is great. They need to get on releasing a followup.

never understood the love for Cheatahs, to be honest. Like Swervedriver, but boring.

A new band from Western Mass has a record coming out next week

Haven’t listened to it yet, but based on a couple of singles, the new Hundredth album, out today, is right up this thread’s alley.


#67

kind of one of those bands whose shoegaze status slightly irks me, but Cloakroom should fit here:

who apparently have a new album coming out:


#68

#69

They’re more like heavy slowcore or something than shoegaze but I do love these guys. Excited for the new record


#70

yeah, they’re pretty similar to True Widow in that regard, who get lumped in with shoegaze a lot.

their other new track they posted a while ago is good:


#71

90’s shoegaze minstrels Medicine fit the bill on all counts:


#72

The Buried Life is exceptional


#73

I’ve been listening to this a lot this week. Reminds me of the first Balance and Composure album, but more ‘shoegaze’


#74

#75

This sounds like a good opportunity to jag my last nugaze mix, which errs on the heavier side over much of the mix (with a few exceptions):

(all timestamped for easy skipping)…


#76

Saw Wolves in the Throne Room last night and they were so fucking good


#77

Came to post, Narrow Head and Deftones do it best in my opinion


#78

First band I thought of for this thread!


#79

Narrow Head have a new video out too:
