Oh my god. MY FAVORITE GENRES!

Though I really got into bands like My Bloody Valentine first, I'd been listening to more dream pop lately. For example, here's a group I recently stumbled upon, this album having been produced by Thomas Dolby of 'She Blinded Me With Science' fame.

Welcome

I just came across this band Diamond Dancer after they were spamming a bunch of other bands. Surprisingly I really liked their stuff. Sort of a mix of lush shoegaze guitar stuff and the 90s emo style. Check out their free EP

Wow, I thought this club had died. Happy to see it didn't. That'll teach me about never checking back. Anyway, I still love shoegaze. Got some shoegaze for you guys: Daniel Land and the Modern Painters which is fantastic.
The Vandelles who mix surf with shoegaze. Even better than it sounds.
pasteboard. Japanese shoegaze. There's always something special about those Japanese bands.
Pinkshinyultrablast. Russian shoegaze band who do that wall of sound thing that makes me love shoegaze. They've only had one release. 4 song EP. I hope they record more.
I'll be checking out the bands you guys posted while I neglected the group. I hope these bands make up for me never checking back.

Don't worry about it. Seems once someone bumps the topic, it starts to pick up. I have to admit too, I don't always check it frequently.

I'm pretty familiar with Daniel Land and the Modern Painters although I haven't listened to them in years. Have not heard of the other bands you posted, will check them out though ;)

Where do you guys find your shoegaze?

My only outlet ATM is The Hype Machine, and if you're not familiar with the website I suggest you GET familiar. Because it's brilliant.

I generally come across nice stuff on last.fm. I don't normally go looking for it though, I usually just stumble upon stuff then look it up later. Sometimes you can find great stuff deep in youtube.

Also that Daniel Land and the Modern Painters tune is amazing along with the pinkultrashinyblast tune.

Some other stuff to check out:
Windy & Carl - Lighthouse This one is more ambient than shoegaze, but you can clearly hear the influence
Rest of My Life - Like Socks From a Dryer I honestly don't remember when I found this album, but it's quite lovely. It has a big post-rock influence though
Southpacific - Round (Forget What You Feel) I came across this band when I got into Duster. Bought their only album from a used record store. They are pretty unknown but damn are they good. Awesome instrumental shoegaze

Good god that Southpacific song..

I've been neglecting last.fm for a long time, I might log some solid hourage on it some day soon..

I tend to find most of my music by accident, i'm usually listening to random playlists in the background of whatever else i'm doing, and on occasion I hear something that piques my attention. I feel like we're a very lucky generation to have such a wide scope of music readily available, it always makes me wonder where all these underground and unknown bands ended up pre-internet era.

I always have the scrobbler open. Pretty interesting to see how much I end up listening to and what my top artists are. I usually randomly come across a new artists flipping through band pages I listen to. Add me up next time you login

Yeah it is true, and if I'm told about an artist I can go look it up on youtube or some other site and instantly listen to them. It can be kind of overwhelming sometimes the amount of stuff I want to listen to, and what I actually get to is pretty small.

I'm thinking of starting to post ambient/minimal artists here too since I'm a big fan, and shoegaze sort of partains to those genres. What do you guys think? If so check out Maps and Diagrams. Can't get enough of them recently

I'd greatly appreciate any and all music, and I know your taste is quite good so you can't steer me wrong. I've posted quite a few tunes that aren't exactly shoegaze.

There's been a really recent surge in music these days, within both the mainstream and the underground. The electronic influence is becoming overwhelming, but something i've noticed is the emergence of the 16-bit sound. Every thing from radio garbage to some of my most favorite tracks are all heavily influenced by 16-bit, SNES and Genesis era video games. I hear it everywhere. It's probably due to the fact that people my age (22 and above) grew up playing these games, and now this is the same generation making music. It really sends me reeling in to nostalgia.

Couple jammy jams

Soko - First Love Never Die --- A little more on the indy side, but for some reason I dig this tune

Foxes In Fiction - The World Is As Soft As Lace (Felt Cover) -- Absolutely everything I love about dreampop. Fantastic chill track

Unouomedude - Frequency -- One of my favorite songs of the last year, heavy, hard, hazy. Absolute brilliance

last.fm says Silversun Pickups are Shoegaze and I really like them. But I don't know if that's like going into Metal Hell and saying I like Slipknot (which I did once). But yeah, if that's a valid comment, anyone know any other bands like them?

UGH I NEARLY CRIED

omg wtf :C I literally just started to listen to them. Terrible news

Alos Snuff, I'd consider Silversun Pickups shoegaze, atleast shoegaze influenced. You can hear it in the guitars. I like a few of their tunes like Common Reactor

Major bump.

Just started to re-listen to the band It's Just Vanity. I got their free album a few years back and got it off my old computer. I like it even better now than I did back then. It's kind of a mix of 90s emo, post-rock, and shoegaze. Check it out :)
I've also been listening to The Pine. Not really shoegaze, but they have that "wall of sound" style

Yay! Common Reactor is a great song. I definitely recommend Little Lover's So Polite, Melatonin and Lazy Eye.

In fact the whole of Carnavas is fantastic.

i like the remix of little lover's so polite. i cant really think of anything close to silversun pickups except the joy formidable, lower dens, amusement parks on fire and maybe dead gaze. they all just barely sound like them, but they're good if you're not looking for an exact replica u kno?

Whenever I listen to Silversun Pickups I always get a Smashing Pumpkins vibe from them. For example Try, Try, Try

The pumpkins did some pretty cool shoegaze-y stuff later in their career

I seem to be quite particular with Silversun Pickups' music. There are songs that I really really like, and listen to loads, but others just don't quite do it for me. Even one of their most popular songs I didn't enjoy listening to as much as I did songs like the ones I mentioned.

I just never cared for Billy's voice, don't know why. Preciate what the pumpkin's did for music and whatnot, just not my dish

Here's a handful of assorted dreampoppers and shoegazers

YES! New Oceanographer album coming in a few weeks. Here is a 3 track preview and it's glorious. I've been waiting years for this
