    I had always thought that Shoegaze/Shoegazing is some type of fetish. Today I found out it's actually a music genre....:oops:

    Some of it is pretty good but I have to be in a mood for it. Believe it or not, there are sub-genres of Shoegaze, like blackgaze (black metal-y shoegaze, for example).

    This is your typical shoegaze stuff:


    This is more the stuff I was/am into...The vocals can be a bit harsh to the uninitiated but I can't recommend this album enough:

    A lot of shoegaze reminds me of tv crime drama mood/outro music.

    Yep, its seems to fit somewhere between ambient/soundscapes and depressing alt/pop music, ala The Cure, Jesus & Mary Chain, etc.
    Just add loads of reverb, fuzz and delay :thumb:

    It appears they ran out of good nicknames right after Heavy Metal...

    It's in my nature to in these kind of situations try to find other accomplices. That makes it easier for me to not feel like a big dufus...:rolleyes:

    A dufus nevertheless but not alone! If I'm going down I'm taking someone with me!
