The Best Shoegaze and Dream Pop of 2017 is a nice list of interesting releases throughout the last year.
A few I had heard about, but a lot of them were brand new to me.

Thanks for this... besides Ride and Slowdive I didn't really catch much in the genre this year. As well...I kind of completely forgot about the Ride, and haven't listened to Slowdive nearly enough.

The new Ride was kind of forgettable, unfortunately. Slowdive is easily in my top albums of the year. It never gets old for me no matter how many times I listen to it. Can't say I've even heard of a single other entry from that list, though

JAMC's Damage and Joy is a major omission probably. It's definitely better than the Ride.

edit: oh lol, page 1 didn't load properly for me on my phone so I only saw the top 6. JAMC are still missing!

On page 1, I've really enjoyed previous Airiel (check out The Battle of Sealand from ten years ago), but I'm queuing up all of these. And to think at the beginning of last week I was down to just 20 hours on my Spotify queue. drat end-of-year lists!!

Woah, new Airiel. I've had a couple of their Winks & Kisses EPs (which, by the way, are four in number and combine to form an LP's worth of material as well as a picture if the physical copies are arranged in a square) for a long time but bought the rest of their work earlier this year. Mostly from google play because only Sealand was on bandcamp at the time, but apparently now their full discography is there.

If it wasn't obvious, I love this band. I don't know when I'll next buy more music but their new album is definitely on my wishlist.

e: oh my god, this album is loving amazing. like, it's a perfect mix of everything I like about this sub-genre, plus a prominent bass

We will fight them to the last. And we will defend those that cannot defend themselves. Today we fight, brothers and sisters. Today we stand up and never, ever relent. Brothers and sisters -- prepare yourselves. Today we go to WAR!

I'm still sad that Lush got together, did one EP, and vanished again. They were always my favorite shoegaze band.

given the way the tour ended (Phil abruptly leaving the band before the last show) I assume there was some kind of drama behind the scenes.

On the chance anyone cares I snapped some Lush shots when they played here a year ago: https://www.flickr.com/photos/marko...157672977112521

Awesome. Wish I'd have caught the tour. Hell, the last time I saw them live was when I was in high school. Miki was like, my big crush when I was 15 or so.

And yeah, Phil just up and left so there had to be something wrong. Maybe he wasn't really into the whole idea at all. I don't know.

Lush are one of my favorite bands, and I was really crushed when they re-dis-banded before I had a chance to see them live.

Judging by various interviews the members had given over the years, none of them ever seemed to be really excited about the idea of reforming. Obviously, the band broke up in a tragic way, and between that and nearly 20 years of them having lives and families mostly outside the music industry, it's not that surprising that things didn't work out when they tried to get back together.

At least we got a pretty good EP out of the attempt. I never thought I'd get to hear a new Lush song again.

Would like to recommend a little band called Lacing: https://lacing.bandcamp.com/ Really enjoyed their album that came out this year, and it'd be a good listen for all ya gazeheads.

This song owns. It has a Sonic Youth quality to it but with a lot of gazeyness.


Also, Panda Riot is pretty awesome. Look up the song "night animation" on Spotify.

Weird, thought No Joy was completely finished for some reason. I am definitely a fan.

No Joy is responsible for some of my fave "shoegaze" of recent years. everyone should go buy their last 2 full albums if you haven't already.

I forgot about them too and decided to look them up. I bought tickets for a show in Denver immediately after watching the video

New haul from Bandcamp:

Palehorse/Palerider - Burial Songs
Slowdive ST
Beach House - Bloom
Airiel - Molten Young Lovers
LACING - Bummer
Nothing - Tired of Tomorrow
Jesu - EIGCTTLFWIC
True Widow - AVVOLGERE

..among stuff from other genres. I've already listened to all of these because Bandcamp is cool like that, and it is an absurdedly good batch of music.
