Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

Anyone check this record from Seirom out?

https://burningworldrecords.bandcamp.com/album/and-the-light-swallowed-everything

He comes more from the metal side of things where it's not really picked up. It's more dream than pop I guess but a few of you might like it over here. It's dreamy, romantic, shoegazy as far as I am concerned. 

Thought I had the wrong link on BW lol - it's the most chill, ambient, soundscape music, instrumental tracks like Hammock or Eluvium and others with ethereal male vocals to push it into the -gaze family.

I would put this on the exact opposite end of the shoegaze spectrum that The Angelic Process lands (heavy, doom, metal, atmospheric).

Really nice music, and I can why 95% your metalhead base is not going to buy into this, but it's a great addition to your label.

Thanks! Yes I agree, this is more light. Maybe not that much anger, that is underneath much of the  TAP material. It's actually Maurice (Seirom is Mories backwards) from Gnaw Their Tongues. I have 4 older tracks that are a deadringer for early Slowdive stuff. Might have to put that out on a 7" if I have the budget.

Not sure if anyone else bought this recently but I'd recommend 'Pink Noise' by Echo Ladies, you can listen on bandcamp and the pink vinyl can still be found on a number of uk sites (not sure where in the US are stocking it)

I ordered their self titled CS a few months ago, real good stuff!

Bullmoose is $33 + ship in the US, but Juno Records in the UK still has it up for $23PPD to the US.

I’m not well versed in dream pop & have no clue if this fits into this thread, but Wikipedia tells me they’re dream pop so it must be accurate.  Found these guys while listening to some chillwave tho so I dunno.

 

But this album is killer.  Get past the goofy intro & it’s a nice, chill, infectious album.

1st Full Length Album

Limited to 250 on Green colored vinyl

I've had a tab open for this since I got the email and keep slacking on ordering it.  Going to remedy when I get paid tomorrow.

@deafening turned me onto HOLY FAWN who just announced a full length, and my hopes are really high for this.  I do not see vinyl plans, but imma spring for a CD since it's /25 (ooooh) Check out the single Arrows .... and their earlier material as well.

HOLY FAWN - Death Spells

New track by Twin Studies "Still Life" is absolutely sublime.

Don passed along this recommendation to me & they might be the best new band I’ve listened to all year.  Everything by them thus far is insanely good.  This new album has shot to the top of my most anticipated currently.

 

I snagged that CD as well hoping for that /25 lyric sheet.  The first CD I’ve bought in years lol.

So, I'm not sure if they belong here but I just started checking out DIIV ahead of the Deafheaven tour and HOLY FUCK!  Dude!  These guys are great!

I started with the KEXP video (actually spurred because I was listening to Neu!'s "Hallogallo" and someone said that DIIV kexp brought them there) and watch the whole thing.  Raging.  Now onto their most recent album, and man!!!!  Wow!!!!

 

This is hitting me so hard right now, loving it.

Kit from TPOS has been raving about these guys for a long time.  Everything I've listened to has been great, but there was one song I REALLY liked.  Always thought of these guys as more post-rock but happy to see them getting talked about!

DIIV have been the shit for a long time now.  I’ve heard mixed things about their live show though.

Yeah i noticed the KEXP video is quite old.  But if that quality is any indication of their performance, I am very stoked.  Especially with the new songs.  "Under The Sun" is incredible.

I think the quality of DIIV's live show hinges on what kind of health Cole is in. 

Absolutely. It's rare to escape smack, like less than 5% do, always hoping the best for him.

Both times I have seen them, they have been good, not great, and No Joy blew them away on Is The, Is Are tour.

oooo yeah....  heroin is nasty.  Look at what is happening to Michael Keene from The Faceless.  But where have you guys gotten this information from, regarding DIIV and heroin use?

There are a couple interviews where it was brought up, then he went to rehab. He and Sky Ferreira got pulled over, and Zachary was later charged, with possession of heroin.
