Shoegazer Sunday: Nothing’s “Endlessly”

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Here’s “Endlessly,” another song off Nothing’s Guilty of Everything:

Shoegazer Sunday: Mermaids’ While Spectres Waltz

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

My search for waltz-time Shoegaze continues apace with Mermaids’ “While Spectres Waltz.”

Shoegazer Sunday: SPC ECO’s “Fuck You”

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

SPC SCO’s Rose Berlin seems very out of sorts with you for some reason…

Shoegazer Sunday: Windermere’s “Trailer Park”

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

As far as I can tell, this Windermere is a defunct Post-Rock/Shoegaze band from Denmark, not the current band from New Jersey. They sound a bit like Jeniferever if the latter’s lead singer could sing a bit better. “Trailer Park” is a pretty song with a long build.

Shoegazer Sunday: The Hope Slide’s “The Prince William Sound”

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

The Hope Slide is a Canadian Band named after a natural disaster and, like Great Northern, has a name that make it hard to search for information about them on Google.

Shoegazer Sunday: Thee Heavenly Music Association’s “Trip Seat”

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

It’s been a couple of years since I posted something from Tears Run Rings, so here’s “Mind the Wire.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Nothing’s “B & E”

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

And here’s Philadelphia-based Nothing with “B & E.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Echodrone’s “Noisebed”

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Still grooving on Echodrone’s new album Five. My favorite piece from the album is “Noisebed,” which has some absolutely lovely harmonies:

So consistent is their sound that only after repeated listenings to Five did I notice that original lead singer Meredith Gibbons had left and been replaced by Rachel Lopez (who seems to have a bit higher range).
