I love rainy day records;

The Album Leaf - In A Safe Place

American Football - American Football (some might say it's not rainy day but I think so)

The Antlers - Hospice

The Antlers - In The Attic Of The Universe

The Antlers - Palace

Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) - On Time Spent Waiting

Keaton Henson - Birthdays

Keaton Henson - Dear

Portishead - Dummy

Red House Painters - Down Colorful Hill

Those are my favorites :-)

The Album Leaf is perrrrf. I know this list isn't for me, but damn, I'll look into all the others, haha

Just wanted to add that I pre-ordered The Bilinda Butchers' "Heaven" the other day. $20 is a bit high for a single LP, but I guess it's a bit understandable since there were only 250 copies pressed. I usually like to listen to a whole album before deciding on whether to buy it, but I'm taking a gamble with this one. Hope I don't regret it.

If anyone's interested:

I back this suggestion 100% the bbs never fail.

I'd also recommend albums by Catherine Wheel but they haven't been reissued. Original pressings shouldn't cost more than $40.

 

Good luck finding a copy of "Chrome" for $40.

 

I had a massive crush on Miki!

 

You were not alone, haha.

 

I still pull out the early Ride EPs. They look great and still sound good to me.

 

Everything pre-Blank is top notch, post-Blank not so much.

 

Going Blank Again era stuff is pretty great though. Dig this B side from the Leave Them All Behind EP:

Anyone wanna rec some darker/heavier takes on shoegaze? Released this year preferably? And not Guilty of Everything, please. 

 

You might roll your eyes when I mention this, but I thought Whirr's "Around" EP was a bit dark. Well, at least a bit darker than what they've previously released.

Edit: Whoops, forgot this was released in 2013.

I did roll my eyes at first, but I found that to be enjoyable. So thanks for that!

Idk, I guess I'm just looking for more artists like HANL and PfB cause I've played both those records so many times this year already. No one else touches em, imo.

I know Nothing "Guilty of Everything" was mentioned before, but for those interested, there's a new red and black stripy repress of 300 available from the label for $18

Thanks. I've been lagging behind with this release, I'll be picking this up for sure.
