Rolling shoegaze thread (the old-DiS sequel)


#61

Oh, and shoegazey/dream pop band Wildhoney put together a great Spotify playlist of their favourite shoegaze songs that’s worth a listen.


#62

Thanks for posting this one up - ordered my cd a week or so ago, but listened to the album a couple of times and am definitely enjoying it (even if it’s not as immediate as its predecessor). I guess ‘self release’ is the problem with the coverage - do bands even send them out for review? (I think DiS missed Northern Automatic Music and they were signed to a label at the time)…

details of Curve reissues:

nothing hugely revelatory, though it would be nice hearing some of it remastered.


#64

I would have thought they’d covered this by now. Beginning to feel like money for old rope!


#65

not prime-era MBV by any means, but it looks like some rare promo from the Conway era with unreleased tracks has shown up on discogs:


#66

I think I’d be more interested in a new ep…


#67

that goes without saying (just what the hell happened with those repressings too?) but figured it would be of some interest.


#68

new Auburn Lull album coming


#69

new Pinkshinyultrablast

pretty good, but I miss some of the energy (though it shows up a bit at the end.)

most interesting shoegaze-related news all year:


#71

We need to be ready for anything. If MBV see this pic, they are going to feel like they failed and need to reevaluate.


#72

Newmoon . 27 October London. Who else wants to go?

Sigur Ros announce a festival, but more importantly Kevin Shields activity!:

“kevin is currently finishing an all analog vinyl version of loveless and isn’t anything and is also working on material for a new my bloody valentine album to be released in 2018.”

I mean, I’ll believe it when I see it, especially since those vinyl represses have been in the pipe for ages, but still…
