And the Slowdive cover kick continues, with Indonesia’s Jellybelly doing their cover of “Machine Gun” in a jangly live performance.

Here’s Fresno, California’s The Sleepover Disaster with “Oceanographer,” which sounds a tiny bit like Radiohead.
The sound quality is not the best, and the vocals pretty much suck, but this cover by Alcian Blue (AKA The Antiques) is still the best live cover of “Primal” I’ve heard from anyone (including Slowdive, who only played it at early shows, and not particularly well).
Like I’ve said before, anyone doing good cover of “Primal” will get linked in this space.
As for Slowdive, their new tour shows their live shows have improved considerably, as we shall see next Sunday…
The Swells were an Austin-based Shoegaze band. Here they are with “Golden.”
Evidently they’re now known as Seaholm Electric.
Here’s “Shine,” another one from Zurich’s SummeryMay. The best description I can come up with for them is “Imagine a Christian shoegaze Night Ranger that doesn’t suck.” They were having some trouble wrapping their head around the concept…
I bet every high school English teacher in America will be showing this to their class come September…
For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s Galaxie 500 covering seminal punk band Joy Division’s “Ceremony”:
For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s UK psychedelic shoegaze outfit Tripwires (not to be confused with Midwestern frat rock band Tripwire) with the short, high octane “Cinnamon.”
I think the video features footage from Alejandro Jordowsky’s Holy Mountain, which includes some very brief nudity.
For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s another shot of SPC ECO with “Fallen Stars.”
This is off their new album Sirens and Satellites, which I liked enough to buy. The overall sound features very pretty, very spacey background synthesizer washes with poppy tunes and understated female vocals somewhere between Florence + The Machine, Sarah McLachlan, and Tori Amos, with a dash of Yoko Kanno. The emotional feel of the album is a lot like Malory’s Outerbeats.
