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
Pure Ecstasy - Voices

not shoegaze

So that new My Bloody Valentine came out and immediately crashed their server.  Anyone heard it yet?

As well it should!
Man, I'm loving this thing. Maybe one or two duds but the rest is just splendid. Between this and the Foxygen album 2013 will truly be a good year for music.

My Bloody Valentine - Cigarette In Your Bed

Songs like this make me glad I have ears.
Shameless plug: I edited a little skating clip to that song Extra 2/? on Vimeo

The new MBV-album is kind of like loveless 2, I love it. Its empowering music.

thanks dude, penny and brady are my favs

MBV seems to be about a re-constructed romance

Fuck yeah....saw Atlas sound and Lotus Plaza last year at p4k, deerhunter there 2 years ago. I like the new lotus plaza album, but the first one was waaaay sicker i feel. More shoegazey, ambient. I guess the one dood (locket sumthin)  did it all by himself, but he had had a full band on the second one.

BUT THE NEW MBV, OMFG

I knew it would be diff than loveless, but man its sooo good. haters of that shit just dont know good music or there blinded by loveless nostolgia
ive synced it up that second song with jon allies slave part, goes too good with it. Is this and yes is my fav for sure.

p.s: i was watching kids in emerica at a buddies house this past weeknd, and realized that "sometimes" is the menu screen song. i freaked out when i heard it. if i only knew about em when i was a youngyin

Dude... that was sick.  So many sweet spots and i loved the editing and the apartment skating at the end brings back memories.  i'm definitely beyond being able to live in a place that i can destroy by skating in, but man do i miss turning hallways into mini ramps.

I haven't had a chance to listen to Locket's new album. And I've only listened to a few tracks from Parallax. But the first two albums from Atlas and Lotus' first album are some great works.

How was it seeing Deerhunter live? They're one of the bands that I still have yet to see...

"Yellow Loveless" is a compilation of Japanese bands covering every song off loveless. This is by far my favorite track on there.

^^gtfo....lol j/k.  Give it a few more listens man, you'll get it.

But mr deputy, I missed a majority of that deerhunter set. I was into em at the time, but lets just say I hadn't listened to "weird era" in its entirety yet,  so I left early to go see toro y moi's set, Which was sick but I still wished I stayed. Then the following year I saw both atlas and lotus plaza and they  both bout melted my face, so good. But id def check out both new ones, both good considering how awesome there predecessors were.

Anyone here into gang gang dance?

Hah, that was not our apartment, just some abandoned cabin near where I used to live. Its gone now, though. And at 25 Im starting to feel a little weird partying at places like that...

Fucking face melters, man... One day, I will see Deerhunter in the fullest experience possible. And then all will be well.

Are you into Dead Meadow? (not a shoegaze band, but oh well)

Thanks for this.  I found a link for the album simply by googling.

I little aside about the Japancakes.  I studied at the University of Georgia in Athens and worked with Eric Berg at an italian restaurant and am friends with Heather McIntosh.  I really love their music.
