yesterday I had some free time so I decided to clean up my mail box and had to fight with tons of unread messages of you guys. I'm so overwhelmed! I never believed there are so many people out there reading my blog. So thanks for your kind words.
I really try to get back to everyone of you but that's not possible, thanks to the fact that I have to work and also want to have some time left I can spend on my own music projects and my boyfriend.
It's also not possible to post all of your submitted music on Shoegaze Love and this is still a personal blog where I post bands and music I love. That doesn't mean, when I'm not writing about your band that you guys suck, I might just not be into it.
I hope you don't mind and keep on sending me music. I'm listening to all of it (when I find the time to do it!)
So let's start with some music:
First band I want to introduce to you is Costumes. The band from Austin, TX are mixing lofi indie rock with some dreamy shoegaze elements. Sweet stuff!
Vapour Night are some scottish band that convinced me with their great composition of dark ambient music with electronical and gazy influences. The vocals remind me of Slowdive and I fell in love with their song 'Night Flower'. Just amazing
Shalloboi are an ambient music duo based in chicago. It's a mix of drone and oldschool shoegaze a la MBV. Very cool and the retiring vocals match perfectly.
The next one I want to show you is not actually Shoegaze but Beauty Camp got me with their very catchy mix of different genres. It's like Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) meets Jónsi (Sigur Rós) in a reggae bar and some DJ is playing some displaced electro pop while a crappy jazz band is playing in the other corner. short: I never heard something like that before and I love it!
Sunken Seas impress with spacey modern shoegaze music. What can I say? It's just the way I like it!
SUPERRRRRRRRRCRUSH!!! Oh my gosh I completely fell in love with Supercrush! Besides Shoegaze Music I love oldschool Indie Rock so much and this band just went right into my heart with their catchy pop songs that remind me of Ash and Dinosaur Jr. So great! Check them out!!!!
So that's it so far. I don't want to overload you with all the great bands! Many of the ones I posted offer free download so check them out and maybe leave some bucks just to help them keeping on doing great music. I know it's hard.
