I was in the mood for mellow, and Eluvium‘s “Don’t Get Any Closer” (which has a definite ambient film score tinge to it) fits the mellow bill.

I was in the mood for something mellow, and Golden Garden‘s “Ghostwood” admirably fits the bill, even if the video comes in almost entirely on the cheap side of the “cheap but arty” continuum.
Lead singer Aubrey Rachel Violet Bramble (if in fact that’s a single person’s real name and not a real name + fake name combo) has the most obvious “little girl” voice this side of Alison Shaw of Cranes.
For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s San Francisco’s Slowness (who describe themselves as a “drone pop band”) with “Walls of Blue,” a steady-state song that sounds like an extended riff off the end of Pink Floyd’s “Time.”
For your Sunday doze of shoegaze, here’s New York’s DIIV with the NSFW-ish “Wait.”
For your Sunday dose of shoegaze, here’s Black Tambourine’s “Throw Aggi Off The Bridge.”
Velveteen is a band from
Germany most famous (for certain values of “famous”) for having their album hoaxed as a Death Cab for Cutie album. (Disclaimer: I couldn’t recognize a Death Cab for Cutie song with a gun to my head.) Correction: The band wrote to note they’re the London Velveteen, not the German one. “Poster Boy” is another video whose theme is “War is bad and stuff.” Or alternately, “stock footage from the Vietnam is pretty cheap.”
Here’s another dose of classic UK Shoegaze band Ride with “OX4.” Hard to understand how this never charted, as it has a perfect, catchy pop melody underpinning it.

Here’s another dose of Italy’s Starframes with “Broody Solider,” whose message seems to be that war is bad and stuff.
The video appears to have been done by somebody who watched Tapeheads.
Here’s another dose of The Telewire. “Never Been Alive” sounds like The Archies dropping acid.
I mean that in a good way.
Sunday’s does of Shoegaze comes top you from SPC ECO (supposedly pronounced “Space Echo”)’s “Push”:
There’s also a tiny bit of 8-bit and dub in there for flavor.
I listened to this and few of their other song’s and went “This sounds a bit like Curve,” and indeed half the duo is Dean Garcia, who was in Curve.
