If you are stuck at home and just want to play a nice mix of "dream pop, shoegaze, post-punk, ethereal, with a splash of trip-hop, darkwave", then give Big Sonic Heaven a try. It's streaming 24/7 without ads and is pretty drat good.

I really love this song, I guess it is dream pop?!

Felt was its own unique thing, that particular record sounds dream poppy because it was produced by Robin Guthrie. but everything they put out is worth listening to, one of the "shoulda been huge but wasn't" bands.

i was a pauper/I was second class./i was a moment/that quickly passed.

edit: just remembered, Phil King (Lush) was in Felt for a stretch. Phil got up to all kinds of mischief...

Yeah, I recently discovered them and was wondering why I haven't heard of them before so they never made it big.


Black Ship in the Harbour is a great song. thanks for sharing it was not on their Spotify catalogue, It is missing most of their stuff.

Felt was one of those niche bands that briefly stepped outside their niche to make a song with broader appeal, but couldn't add the new audience to their regulars. Canonical examples are Pepper by the Butthole Surfers - that song was everywhere for a while - and Sparks Are Gonna Fly by the Catherine Wheel.

Perhaps he prefers songs where you can understand a single word that is being sung? I know I do.

My favorite Only Shallow memory was driving into an unfamiliar city to get gas on a road trip and getting routed into the first multi-lane roundabout I'd ever seen. I had a complete anxiety meltdown, started screaming over my steering wheel, suddenly in a hot sweat even with the A/C blowing...and then Only Shallow shuffled up on my MP3 player, and it was like...oh. Never mind. Everything's fine. It was like an audible shot of morphine straight into my brain.

I've never even tried to understand that song, but I swear part of it is "touch her there, where she doesn't dare"
