Shoegazer Sunday: Luna Covers “Sweet Child O’Mine”

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

I’m not a big fan of Guns & Roses, but certainly “Sweet Child O’Mine” has to rank among their best, with one of the all-time great guitar hooks. Here’s Luna with a nicely chill, twangy rendition of it.

Shoegazer Sunday: Moonlit Sailor’s “Fresh Snow”

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

Moonlit Sailor gets tagged as a post-rock, but they remind me strongly of Midsummer minus the vocals, and since Midsummer has always struck me as a Shoegaze band, here’s Moonlit Sailor’s “Fresh Snow.,”

Shoegazer Sunday: The Horrors’ “Scarlet Fields”

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

This is as close as I could find to a Shoegazer song appropriate to Halloween week.

I’m assuming the name of the band refers to their haircuts

Sunday Shoegazer: Air Formation’s “Low December Sun”

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

Here’s Air Formation’s “Low December Sun.” I should probably save this for December, but I’m obviously an impatient sort…

Shoegazer Sunday: Beach House’s “Wishes”

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Since this wonderfully choreographed and delightfully weird video for Beach House‘s “Wishes” (off their album Bloom) already has close to 2 million views, it looks like I might be a little late to this party.

Shoegazer Sunday: Winter’s “Crazy”

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Winter’s “Crazy” (off their Supreme Blue Dream album) is sort of Shoegaze crossed with catchy bubblegum pop, and a vaguely disturbing video perfect for the Halloween season…

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive’s “I Believe”

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Yep, another Slowdive rarity…

Shoegazer Sudnay: Mvnich’s “Magnicide”

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

I think Mvnich, despite having a name some render as “Munich,” hail from Spain. Other than that, I have very little information on them. Here’s “Magnicide.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Soft Blonde’s “Walk Under Lightning Strokes”

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Soft Blonde is on the Mazzy Star-twangy end of Shoegaze, with a few dashes of prog rock thrown in for good measure. Here’s “Walk Under Lightning Strokes” off their No Good Trying EP.

Shoegazer Sunday: Tuath’s “Ag dúnmharú an timpeallacht” Live

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Though you can’t tell from the video description, this is Ireland’s Tuath performing “Ag dúnmharú an timpeallacht” live. It’s a straightforward guitar-drive instrumental piece. (I only know the name of the song by tracking down their bandcamp page for the album it came from.)
