ABOUT THE GENRE
Definition of shoegaze (-ing/-er) from wordiq.com:

"Shoegazing is characterized by the use of distortion and fuzz, droning riffs and a Spectorish wall of sound from the noisy guitars.
Vocals were typically subdued in volume and tone, but underneath the layers of guitars was often a strong sense of melody."


The genre reached its highpoint between the years 1988-93. Some of the most important bands at that time were My Bloody Valentine, Curve, Slowdive, Ride, Chapterhouse, Cocteau Twins and Lush. New bands that could be described as, or at least has elements of shoegaze are No Joy, Stagnant Pools, True Widow, Hammock, Warpaint, Tamaryn, The Radio Dept, The Big Pink, M83, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and A Place to Bury Strangers, etc... There's a longer list of bands under Connections. Check it out!
