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.

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.

Shoegazer Sunday: Luna Covers “Sweet Child O’Mine”

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

I’m not a big fan of Guns & Roses, but certainly “Sweet Child O’Mine” has to rank among their best, with one of the all-time great guitar hooks. Here’s Luna with a nicely chill, twangy rendition of it.
