I don't know a lot of these bands either and I'm only 25, I guess it depends where you live and what you have access to. Although iTunes is helping a lot of people discover new bands with their iStore. Check out 'The Daysleepers'. They are an incredible new band from New York who are so dreamy and addictive. Their myspace page has a free song to download and about 6 to listen to. And they have two EP's available on iTunes. I seem to be into a lot of shoegaze music at the moment... think Mazzy Star, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Thrushes, Celebration, Alcian Blue... check out my myspace page at

have a look at my top friends who are bands and see if you like them! They all have songs to listen to :)

very impressive tigermilk! Thanks for that, I have listened to a couple of tracks from some of the artists you have there...excellent! I'll listen to more when I have a little more time up my sleeve, but really likes some of them!
Now, without trying to appear too daft...what is "shoegaze" music?? It conjures up staring at ones feet whilst dancing..??

The name was coined in a review in "Sounds" of a concert that the singer read lyrics taped to the floor throughout the gig. The term was picked up by the New Musical Express, who used it as a reference to the tendency of the bands' guitarists to stare at their feet (or their effects pedals, these pedals create the reverb and distortion sounds), seemingly deep in concentration, while playing. Melody Maker preferred the more staid term The Scene That Celebrates Itself, referring to the habit which the bands had of attending gigs of other shoegazing bands, and often moonlighting in each other's bands. The shoegazing sound featured extensive use of guitar effects, and indistinguishable vocal melodies that blended into the creative noise of the guitars. Common musical elements in shoegazing are distortion (aka "fuzzbox"), droning riffs and a "wall of sound" from noisy guitars. Typically, two distorted rhythm guitars are played together to give an amorphous quality to the sound. Another part of shoegaze was "Dream pop". It was a more ambient and abstract take on folk and pop music. It was pioneered by Cocteau Twins (who are my second favourite all-time band after The Cure) and This Mortal Coil, who took advantages of the improvements in studio technology in the previous decades to create a new strain of pop music with a hazy, ethereal sound. Dream Pop proved to be highly influential on the shoegazing scene that emerged in the early nineties, and certain acts straddle the two styles, though shoegaze can be distinguished by its noisier, psychedelic sound. I can send you some mix CDs if you'd like?

wow! Thanks tigermilkfor that info!! Very interesting! Of course, when u think about it, there are many guitar players who "look down"..my ex was a bass player and he ALWAYS did that!
Thanks for the offer of some cds, I really appreciate it, a very kind thought on your behalf... I might just listen to a few more tracks; am I permitted to take the ones I like? you know, burn a couple myself?
such kind people here... :-D
