Bleach were a short-lived Ipswich band during the first bloom of Shoegaze who out a few EPs then broke up. Here’s “Seeing.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Japanese babY

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Japanese babY [CIC] hails from Krasnodar, Russia. Here they are with a live version of “Твое солнце.” No, I don’t know how to pronounce that. The sound’s a little raw, as you might expect from a live club recording, but the riffs are tasty.

Influences seem to be Jesus and Mary Chain, Sigur Ros, and maybe just a tiny hint of Laibach.

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.
