    I searched for shoegaze on the forum and found - to my surprise - very little content on it, so I thought I'd put together a thread for introducing ppl to this beautiful genre and for general discussion.

    If you have literally no clue what shoegaze is, but the name has piqued your interest, or you've heard but never had the chance to properly check out the genre, I'd strongly suggest you give the following songs a listen:











    Impressed? Good! Now listen to the projects that we have been blessed with
    Start with:

    My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
    Slowdive - Souvlaki
    Ride - Nowhere

    N then you're on your way to becoming a shoegaze extraordinaire!!!
    If you ever seek more suggestions etc, post them itt

    Happy shoegazing!!!

    Loveless is dope. Everything else I've tried feels like a step down.

    Try Crush by Astrobrite that's a fun album that's similar to loveless
    And LSD and the Search for God's self titled is a very dope ep that has a remarkably similar sound to loveless
