Shoegazer Sunday: Dead Leaf Echo’s “So.Wrong”

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

New York City-vased Dead Leaf Echo was another band at the Luscious Heaven shoegaze event last Saturday. Here they are with “So.Wrong”:

Shoegazer Sunday: Single Lash’s “Bitemarks”

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Austin’s Single Lash was one of the bands playing at that Luscious Heaven show at Cheer Up Charlie’s. I only managed to catch one of their songs, but I thought the lead singer was really good. “Bitemarks” may or may not have been that song.

Shoegazer Sunday: All in the Golden Afternoon’s “The Long Goodbye”

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Hope you like drone rock with a repeating riff played for an extended period of time, because that’s what Austin’s own All in the Golden Afternoon is laying down in “The Long Goodbye,” which reminds me of Talking Heads’ “The Overload.” The ubiquitous Ulrich Schnauss was evidently involved in this as well.

All in the Golden Afternoon is one of six bands that will be appearing at Lucious Heaven, a night of shoegaze bands at Cheer Up Charlie’s on October 15, 2016, which is a mere $5.

Shoegazer Sunday: Prepare My Glider’s “In a Whirl”

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

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:

Shoegazer Sunday: Thrushes’ “Salt and Stone”

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

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.

Shoegazer Sunday: Vet Trip’s “Finland”

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

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.

Shoegazer Sunday: Three Lost Tracks by Ozean

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

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.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Lazy Legs’ “Crush”

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Lazy legs is a Chicago-based trio that just released Visiondeath, their debut album. And here’s “Crush.” Because: Doggies!

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive and Brian Eno’s “AB”

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

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.

It’s slight, pleasant, and memorable.

There’s either three whole albums of unreleased Slowdive music out there, or one great album…

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive’s “Slowdive (Purple Drank Shadows Remix)”

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

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.
