shoegaze | Musicosity



1) A Halifax, Nova Scotia born quartet featuring the songs of Aaron Mangle, and his distinguished collaborative ensemble: Dalin Ursenbach (Crowd Power), Pat Ryan (Room Doom), and Andy March (Museum Pieces). Calling up the spirit of underground folk and rock, Mangles croons with harrowing thrushy whispers and bellows brightly. The group likewise explodes with anarchic grunge and also tackles moments of restraint and syncopation. 2) Van Horne brothers. Avoca, IA. Chicago, IL. The hearts of millions.

Since forming in Los Angeles in 2005, Shields have created a uniquely vivid offshoot of the 1990s’ ‘Shoegaze’ sound (My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Ride etc.,) focusing on accessible melody and song craft rather than burying themselves beneath swirling effects. Always dynamic, Shields juxtapose crystalline lead lines and introspective melodic vocals with vast guitar-drenched barrages of sound fueled by adrenalized drumming.

Low Sea

NEW ALBUM 'REMOTE VIEWING' AVAILABLE 02/2013 Low Sea are a duo (Billie and Bobby D), currently based in Ireland. Their sound is grand psychedelic mixture of shoegaze and noisepop - with influences like Suicide, A R Kane, Mazzy Star and Spacemen 3 springing instantly to my mind. This is textured and layered fuzz with a heavy leaning towards atmospheric songs and a drifting ethereal guitar sound.

Young Prisms

Young Prisms is a San Francisco psychedelic/garage/beach-pop band, influenced by the California coast, Charlton Heston, and late night spiritual pow wows. They recorded their self-titled EP in the living room of their apartment in the first half of 2009. On this first spaced-out EP, the band strands its listeners in the solitude of a beach fireworks display with nothing but lights for the tongue and acid for the ears--arresting, colors everywhere.

Comets On Fire

Comets on Fire are a band from Santa Cruz, California. The band was formed in 1999 by guitarist and vocalist Ethan Miller and longtime friend bassist Ben Flashman, who were seeking to create rhythmically and sonically intense music that paid no attention to categorizations. The band's self-titled debut was released in 2001 and eventually issued on the Alternative Tentacles label. Recorded on a four-track, it was a garage/psych freakout of intense if not epic proportions.
