    Scrap that. Cocteau Twins for me...Heaven or Las Vegas. The whole album!

    Dream pop but very Shoegazey!

    One of my all time face bands/albums.

    I'd recommend DIIV's album 'Oshin', dreamy pop goodness.

    And Wild Nothing early stuff.

    Great recommendations, thank you!

    Predates the Cherry Red box set by 10 years but a worthwhile window into the genre.

    anyone listening to DKFM online? Had it on for a couple of hours and pretty much everything they played was excellent, and mostly bands I'd never heard of. The Gaze scene is obviously pretty healthy (in the US at least), though admittedly most of the bands are mining the same seam as their 90's predecessors and sometimes in a overtly retro/pastiche way.

    I got tickets for Ride in the the Roundhouse, London, in April. Don't think they'll be playing here. It's the Nowhere 30 tour (32 years later).

    Could anyone tell me...would Stereolab be considered a shoegaze band?

    No. They may have elements of the sound but they come from more of a krautrock / electronic background.

    When they started off (the Peng! era), there was a partial shoegaze element but as time has moved on, definitely not.

    I haven't listened to anything beyond Peng! TBH.

    Their early EPs have a shoegazey sort of vibe, but are more noise-pop I guess.

    Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements and Emperor Tomato Ketchup are both great albums and well worth checking out. I saw them a few times in the mid-90s (Columbia Mills, Olympia, Red Box) and they were fabulous. Singles-wise, there's loads and thankfully they've compiled them well on three volumes of Switched On and the excellent Oscillons From The Anti-Sun 3CD+DVD set.
