    Yeah. Curve aren't really shoegaze. Don't really know how I'd describe them. My favourite band as an angst ridden 13 year old. The first "alternative" band I ever truly loved.
    They're goth? Industrial? Fuck knows. Love the guitar sounds they make. Wouldn't have the first idea how to play the stuff they make.

    I sort of put them forward because I know they've worked with Kevin Shields, which surely counts for some kind of shoegazingness.

    Not sure if this counts as shoegazing or not, but of a similar ilk I reckon.

    There's a healthy dose of shoegaze in this track from the wonderfully named Wodensthrone:




    Check out the Genesis style interlude at 5.50 :D

    Lush were kind of shoegazey, in a jangly sort of way...



    But yeah, it was all about Slowdive really, and Souvlaki Space Station is great. My favourite song of theirs is



    ...and that's shoegaze.

    There's some shoegazey type sounds popping up in the extreme end of metal these days though. Two bands that spring to mind, both from the USA as far as I know, are

    Wolves in the Throne Room


    and
    Deafheaven

    'Primal' by Slowdive->Shoegaze heaven. Combines Thames Valley stoner vibe with Cosmic Noise. You gotta have that cello of course.

    I don't think I'll ever stop eulogising about Venera 4's Eidôlon, from 2015.
