Phenomenal Remix of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”

Friday, February 12th, 2016

Trent Reznor has been offering the individual tracks of his music for other people to remix for a while now. I stumbled across this truly awesome Andrej Prebanda remix of “Hurt” on YouTube:

Yeah, I like the Johnny Cash version as well.

Shoegazer Sunday: Vidulgi OoyoO’s “Infinity”

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Korean psychgazer band Vidulgi OoyoO’s “Infinity” is one of those songs that starts slow and keeps building on the same basic groove, a bit like Lemon’s Chair, though Vidulgi OoyoO has a harder and faster edge.

Shoegazer Sunday: Picnic’s “Stop the Fall”

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Here’s a find: A band from Estonia that sounds a bit like a cross between several of my favorite Shoegaze bands (Slowdive, Echodrone, Mazzy Star, School of Seven Bells, Malory) called Picnic that just about no one seems to have heard of. “Stop the Fall” has all of 17 views as I type this.

And they’re pretty good. Good enough that I picked up The Weather’s Fine, their debut album, which iTunes has at $7.99.

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s Austin’s own Blackstone Rngrs (yes, they spell it that way), another Saint Marie Records band, with “Frozen Echo,” another entry in the “Hey, we have no video budget, so how many digital effects can we cram in” sweepstakes.

Under Electric Light‘s “Waiting For The Rain To Fall” starts off an awful lot like David Bowie’s “Heroes,” then goes off in its own direction.

Interview With Spinal Tap Manager Ian Faith

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Here’s a modestly amusing link for a cold Sunday morning, a video interview with Spinal Tap manager Ian Faith on faking his own death, why “Big Bottom” is better than “Stonehenge,” and who he could make a lot of money off of were they to die.

Keep you expectations modest…

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s Savage Sister‘s “Harmonize”.

This Might Get Your Goat

Monday, December 21st, 2015

I blame Dwight.

Evidently there’s a Swedish charity that’s trying to raise goat awareness or some damn thing, and to do so they’ve released a Christmas album.

Sung by goats.

And by “sung,” I mean “torturing you ears.”

Yes, it’s Jingle Cats with goats. If you’re in dire need of finding a way to make guests leave at the end of a Christmas party, I think this will provide the answer…

Shoegazer Sunday: Ultraviolet’s “Strawberry Echoes”

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Ultraviolet is an Austin duo. Here’s “Strawberry Echoes” off their first EP.

Shoegazer Sunday: The Secret Machines’ “Nowhere Again”

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Honestly, this is more of a mainstream rock track than shoegaze. The connection here is that the Secret Machines was the main band the late Benjamin Curtis was in before School of Seven Bells.
