Shoegazer Sunday: Scarlet Youth Cover’s Slowdive’s “Primal

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

I said the fastest way for a band to get featured her is to do a credible cover of Slowdive’s “Primal,” and Scarlet Youth has picked up the gauntlet. It’s not a great cover of “Primal,” but it’s a credible one, so here it is.

It’s off of this compilation album that’s entirely Slowdive covers. Echodrone? SPC ECO? 42 songs for $9.99?

Saint Marie Records is obviously very much on my wavelength…

Shoegazer Sunday: Pretty Sad’s “Swim”

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

Pretty Sad is a UK/Denmark band that collaborates via Garageband and Dropbox. They have a pleasingly peppy retro sound not unlike that of Black Tambourine. For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s “Swim” off their first EP.

Shoegazer Sunday: The Sleepover Disaster’s “Songwriting for Dummies”

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s The Sleepover Disaster’s “Songwriting for Dummies.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Great Northern’s “Numbers”

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Great Northern seems to be a duo that ends up sounding an awful lot like Curve, with some SPC ECO, Low, Garbage and Sarah McLaughlin thrown in for good measure, especially for vocalist Rachel Stolte. “Numbers” is pretty addictive.

Shoegazer Sunday: Last Leaf Down’s “The Theme”

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Here’s Last Leaf Down‘s “The Theme.” Nicely gothy and gloomy and echoey, and entirely appropriate for what’s turning out to be winter in November.

Shoegazer Sunday: Dean & Britta’s “Nightnurse”

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Not sure this is actually Shoegaze, but it’s by two former members of Luna. They sound like they were thawed out of the same 1960s time capsule as Austin Powers, sort of Nancy Sinatra dueting with Andy Williams on Quaaludes.

Halloween: Freaky Filipino Drag Queen Cover of “I Will Always Love You”

It’s a good thing I already hate this song…

Shoegazer Sunday: Starfire Connective Sound’s “To Dream You Are Floating Drunk Among The Storm”

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

I think that Starfire Connective Sound is the shoegaze/post-rock embodiment of Brazilian musician Al Schenkel. “To Dream You Are Floating Drunk Among The Storm” has a percussive edge that’s a bit closer to the post-rock end of things.

Shoegazer Sunday: La Hell Gang’s “So High”

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

You don’t have to be a fan of drug-references to enjoy Chilian band La Hell Gang’s echoey, spaced-out “So High”.

They’re evidently on tour in the U.S. right now…
