Think that was a lead single. Picked up Juggernaut Rides at last at a vaguely sensible price and that’s a nice compendium of Phase 1 Swervie. The problem I find with a lot of very recent shoegaze is that it’s either not as good a version of Phase 1 Slowdive (pre Pygmalion) or watered down Deafheaven (so barely shoegaze at all).
What I liked about Tamaryn was that the debut (less so the follow ups) picked something different (Nick McCabe’s early Verve guitar) and redid it with female vocals, while Panda Riot’s debut (an absolute classic) was SO chock full of tunes that its slight reliance on familiar shoegaze tropes was completely covered up. Ringo Deathstarr are probably the best modern proponent of the heavier, grungier end that Swervedriver kicked off, and I still have a lot of time for them.
Recently discovered the Fleeting Joys (Despondent Transponder), which is as good an MBV pastiche as you’d hope for, certainly up there with early Astrobrite anyway. Wish more shoegazers would take the woozy sound collage forward rather than mopey Slowdive-isms.
