Yes and no. Shoegaze straddles a line somewhere between heavenly ethereal nirvana and self-serving faux-artistic mass produced hipster garbage. Of course, on what side of that line whatever one's favorite band is on is up to the listener. What the fuck am I talking about again?

Huge fan. I agree with most of what L33Tg33k said but you can't go wrong with the classics

anything on Factory Records or Captured Tracks (for newer bands) or Sarah Records (if you're more of a twee/janglepop guy)

personal favorites:
Galaxie 500
Ride
Pale Saints
The Lilys
Jesus And Mary Chain

Pure X is pretty much my favorite of the newer bands. Big Troubles, Craft Spells, Wild Nothing are worth a listen too

Ween is definitely not a shoegaze band but this song fits the genre (at least with the fuzzy guitars)

This takes me back to the good days. Ride are my all time faves but Thousand Yard Stare, Captain America, Slowdive and Eugenious are places to start.

I'm a fan of shoegaze but I really think Ride are terribly overrated. They do have one or two songs that are ok but on the whole I think they just sound like an annoying brit pop band with boring songs and lyrics done up with some shoegazey guitar sounds. Am I alone in this?

I also think Lilys are pretty corny for the most part but the first 5/6 songs off this album ("In the Presence of Nothing") are pretty great.

My favourite Lilys song is ginger, worked so well in bag of suck. Everything else I heard from them I couldn't get into.

Fair enough. For me ginger and the rest of that album strays too far into bland '90s alt. rock territory. If you like My Bloody Valentine I don't see how you could not like that first album though.

never really considered JAMC shoegaze... if anything i guess you could say it led to that sound, but it itself isn't really. also, i love ride the best out of all the shoegazers, i couldn't disagree more about them being overrated. going blank again is a flawless album start to finish. you guys named a lot of good ones, but i'll add lush and the boo radleys. two underrated shoegazers. the boo's lightened up their sound after a bit, and got even better. when you're done droning to the early stuff, check out giant steps... it's a masterpiece!

Bump, who's excited for MBV's new album? Has anyone seen them live? They're coming to Australia next year for the first time in 20 years

Seen MBV live 3 times. Awesome, but  super loud so bring ear plugs.

Fair enough. For me ginger and the rest of that album strays too far into bland '90s alt. rock territory. If you like My Bloody Valentine I don't see how you could not like that first album though.

I'll have to check it out, is it "Eccsame The Photon Band" you're talking about? I must of been listening to their later stuff.

In the Presences of Nothing and Eccsame the Photon Band are the The Lilys best albums IMHO.
After that they get kind of brit pop, which is not bad, but not shoegaze if that's what you looking for.

The last 2 albums Lilys released were mediocre at best.

I am also very, very stoked on the slap community right now.  this is my favorite genre easily.

i've just been listening to a shitload of no age. while it's not exactly shoegaze, i feel they took A LOT from MBV (in the best way possible, of course) in a lot of their songs
Glitter - No Age (Music Video)


also, dont know if it was mentioned. but A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS is my go to, ragetastic shoegaze
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_Epv7j0v8U
this whole new album "onwards to the wall" is really good in its entirety, so is their first self titled

New favorites:
Pale Saint's second album "In Ribbons"

Slowdive "Pygmallion" (these guys were always my least favorite of the gazers for some reason. could be the "britpop" influence. but this is great and moves them into more of an Eno-territory)

Medicine's first two albums are essential bits of heavenly noise.

I don't know if Yo La Tengo can be classified as 'shoegaze' but they always sort of gave off the same vibe

Listening to the new album 'fade' right now and it's awesome
