Showing results for shoegaze genre
Shoegaze (originally termed shoegazing and sometimes conflated with "dream pop") is a subgenre of indie and alternative rock characterized by its ethereal mixture of obscured vocals, guitar distortion and effects, feedback, and overwhelming volume.

I had no idea this was a thing till I saw Lazy's review. No wonder I couldn't figure out the theme. Guess I've been living under a rock or just not listening in the right places.

A.R. Kane certainly set the psychedelic tone of the mix. Clever name!
NED! "I will talk, you will listen" made me think of my late Dad
Boo Radleys - I like bands that glean their names from great literature
Victoria has some real nice guitar hooks and is my favorite on the mix, grows on me more and more with each listen
Luna kind of has an REM undertone thing going
Digging the bass line on Under the Sun
While I didn't know many of the songs, the bands were familiar. Sugar for the Pill must get some frequent RP play because I definitely recognized it.

Obscured vocals being a trait of this genre distracts from the music. Case in point, the Lorelei song. Had a pleasing sound, had me channeling a little 80's new wave, but I'll be damned if I could recognize a single lyric Susannah was singing.

Thanks for the education Kurt! I'll be thinking of this mix on my next hike when I'm gazing at my boots. 


I'm glad I didn't scare you away. This music I selected definitely leans more to the "dream pop" side of things.
That A.R. Kane track is considered one of the first songs labeled "Shoegaze".
I have a tendency to do songs in chronological order when I do these genre mixes.
Someone once pointed out how my "flow" went. Honestly...  that's more of a coincidence than any planning on my part.
That type of organization takes work and thought. I don't mind the work. The thought process hurts my head.

When I want an introduction to a genre I find a good way to get one is to ask a knowledgeable fan, especially for a genre I don't appreciate. It helps me see what I might have missed and gets me past my initial reaction. And Shoegaze is so not my thing.

And as often happens that fan gets me to see see the qualities of things I would have ignored. Delighted to say that happened here.

Highlights:
Filter Me through You  That's some power-poppy guitar there!
From a Motel 6  Was surprised I liked this. Maybe it was Captain Crunch guest starring on guitar, but this is like the second Yo La Tengo song that I'd listen to more than once.
Victoria  Another one that snuck up on me.
Black Postcards  Clever Lyrics and catchy hook. One of the few on this disk I had heard before.
Under the Sun  The opening bass line gave me a brief flash of hope that I had found another Ledernacken fan. The breadth of your tastes has never failed to surprise me, but that would be a real shock.
Sugar For the Pill  Another one I was familiar with from the local college radio station, but this mix made me take a fresh look at it. I love having my tastes stretched.

And of coarse the cover art—dude, yer killin' it!

Being a "member" of this club, I find I am in the same space station as you when it comes to being made known of genre's I don't always follow closely. Though you put me up on a higher position of "the breadth of your tastes"... I find you as the one to be "put up on a pedestal" and stretching my taste until it hurts .  

And as you, I listen with an open mind. The main reason is, because I appreciate the work that goes into making these discs and hoping somebody will enjoy that work done.

You caught me with the Dream Syndicate song there. As I've mentioned before... I have a tenancy to lean towards the "shiny, happy music " side of things.
When I first started to compile these songs, I knew there were some hardcore Shoegaze songs out there. The endless droning really doesn't make me happy... or shiny. I passed some of those "classics" up. And went with stuff my wife would like. Well that didn't work anyways.
Wow. Ledernacken! Thanks for bringing a flashback to my KROQ FM- Los Angeles days. Even though they just played their hit "Amok". Was that 1983? Wow.
Thank you for the kind comments.
