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:

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.
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.
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.”

I’m pretty sure the use of it in the Star Trek: Beyond trailer probably added a good $5-10 million to that film’s gross. But I suspect Disney doesn’t have the audacity to follow Star Trek and pony up money to make this an official trailer…
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.

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.
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.
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.
