Starflyer 59s Gold, Silver, and Americana. I never really enjoyed much other shoegaze bands. Jesus and Mary Chain's first two albums are great but I have a hard time calling them shoegaze, maybe a shoegaze prototype if anything.

definitely a genre I've plumbed.

All those mentioned are great and tie into the genre.

The Swirlies - Blonder Tongue Audio Baton (one of me absolute favorites)
Swervedriver - Mezcalhead (showing a bit of the extremes of the genre)
Moose - XYZ (a great shoegaze band turned UKpop, just with a very nice sweeping clean sound

absolutely love The Pale Saints
The Telescopes I'd been turned onto recently and they have a sort of bluesy touch to their instrumentation giving it a truly clean shimmer. Clearly showing the imperatives between bands that predominantly use effects to shape their sound vs. bands that work their sound in-studio...and MBV being a great bridge for that moat. Sonic Youth can be considered shoegaze in one way or another.

Radial Spangle - Syrup Macrame (great shoegaze album with a slightly mushroomy ambiance instilled in the production)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YSzW8hwHfs a pop gem.

swirlies are excellent, although blonder tongue ain't my favourite by them (still great tho).

in terms of my favourite, probably the pale saints. three fuckin' sweet records they had.

I've really enjoyed all the shoegaze I've heard. I'll look up all the artists you all mentioned, I'd love to hear more of it.

Catherine Wheels Ferment and Chrome are classic shoeegaze albums. Amusement Parks on Fire are a great new shoegaze band as well.

The first two Lush albums Spooky and Split are shoegazey, went more indie with Lovelife though.

Alcest are indeed a musically shoegaze band, but with a harder edge vocal. Great band though. French to .

they most definitely are and yes they rule. my only gripe with the genre (and most others) is that there are very few bands actually pushing creativity and most bands just want to sound like slowdive or the jesus and mary chain which is cool if you like that stuff but i personally dig bands that aren't afraid and skilled enough to blend it with something different and move it forward or else we're just going to fall into some weird 90's wormhole and who really wants that
