Dolores O’Riordan, RIP

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Just heard the news that Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer for The Cranberries, has just died at the untimely age of 46.

Shoegazer Sunday: Sleep Party People’s “I’m Not Human At All”

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Getting harder to find any Halloween or horror-themed Shoegaze, and anytime I find a Darkgaze or Blackgaze song I think I like, the Cookie Monster Metal vocals come in to ruin it.
