Shoegazer Sunday: Prepare My Glider’s “In a Whirl”

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Even though Prepare My Glider’s work seems more like a demo reel for the Yamaha fx500, I thought this was pleasant enough to be worth sharing:

Shoegazer Sunday: Thrushes’ “Salt and Stone”

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Been a while since I featured Thrushes for the Sunday Dose of Shoegaze, so here they are with “Salt and Stone” and a video that seems to borrow more than a little from Kill Bill Volume 2.

Shoegazer Sunday: Vet Trip’s “Finland”

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Hey look, it’s another Austin shoegaze band! Vet Trip is a four-piece that sounds a little bit like Thrushes by way of Seasurfer.

Shoegazer Sunday: Three Lost Tracks by Ozean

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

Via When the Sun hits comes three unreleased demo tracks from American band Ozean, “Fall,” “Porcelain” and “Scenic.” To Quote When the Sun Hits: “Today, the songs still sound remarkable and lovely – very much in the vein of Slowdive, but clearly nuanced with Ozean’s own style.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive and Brian Eno’s “AB”

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Yet another unreleased Slowdive track. I thought I posted this years ago, but evidently not. It’s found on the I Saw the Sun compilation of unreleased Slowdive songs (not available in your local record story.

It’s slight, pleasant, and memorable.

There’s either three whole albums of unreleased Slowdive music out there, or one great album…

Hana Maria covering Nine Inch Nails “Closer”

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

In order to provide a break from the relentless book cataloging, here’s a fun acoustic cover of Nine Inch Nail’s Closer by Hana Maria (who seems to record under the name Hana Piranha). Song is NSFW, just like the original.

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive’s “Slowdive (Purple Drank Shadows Remix)”

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Been too busy with work, cataloging books, attending Armadillocon, etc., to seek out Sunday Shoegaze offerings. To make amends here’s a Slowdive remix named after the most ghetto of drinks and slowed down enough for the tempo to work as Slowcore or Doom Metal.

Shoegazer Sunday: Cranes’ “Jewel”

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

I would have thought I put up Cranes’ “Jewel” long ago in my Shoegazer Sunday series, but I do not appear to have done so, so here are two versions: a music video version that seems a bit flashier, and the more-stripped down album version.

Shoegazer Sunday: Novanta’s “Windows”

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

Milan-based Novanta seems to be on my Shoegaze wavelength with “Windows.”
