Modern Shoegaze

I've got your back. Whatever your personal penchant, rest assured there is a shoegaze band to suit everyone's taste. I'm  grateful to Bandcamp for putting this list of Ten Modern Shoegaze Bands primer together.  I've listened to them all so you don't have to (if you don't want to).  In these ten bands you'll hear the spirit of The Drop Nineteens, The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Curve, Spiritualized, The Belltower, along with those other well-known shoegaze bands The Killers and... Interpol. Nevermind, it's all good stuff. 

REMEMBER THESE: Kindling, Rev Rev Rev, The Stargazer Lilies, Kestrels... and Flyying Colours (who don't actually appear in the list - I added them).

  • Numbers 1, 2, 4, 10 are ace.
  • 5 - ok, but not shoegaze/dream pop.
  • 6 - ok.
  • 7 - meh.
  • 8, 9 - pretty good (almost ace)
