Newer Shoegaze/related Bands

Little known and up and coming shoegaze and related genre bands.
1Planning for Burial

I'm going to go ahead and get the bigger artists out of the way early on. PFB is largely associated with many of these bands and is a considerable influence on them with his mix of sludge, shoegaze, slowcore, and ambient.

Whirr is perhaps the best known of the newer wave of shoegaze bands, putting their own twist on the MBV/Slowdive sound.
Guilty of Everything

They've gotten huge after signing to Relapse and putting out their first LP earlier this year. Punk vibes all around.

Now we get to the smaller bands. Airs, from San Francisco, mixes shoegaze with post-punk, black metal, and other sounds.
5Earth Mover
Winter Introduction

From North Carolina, the band is clearly named after a particular Have a Nice Life track.

Dark shoegaze from Michigan.
7Crisis Arm

From Los Angeles. Expect poppy guitar melodies under a fog of doom.
Halloween Dream

San Francisco. Kristina was the latest female vocalist of Whirr and now works as Miserable and King Woman.
I'll Build a Well

Atlanta: Shameful self-promotion. My band, which does some kind of a mix of shoegaze, slowcore, and other sounds.

New Orleans. Sludgy slowcore. Think an insanely heavy Codeine or Duster.
11Foie Gras
Innermost Shrine, Heavily Gilded

San Francisco. Brilliant drone/ambient solo project that sometimes features Grouper-like tracks.
12Balcony View
Night Falls and the Day Will Never Come

Auburn, Alabama. Another superb drone/ambient project, sometimes reminiscent of Windy & Carl.
13Proud Father
Hearu Shi no Proud Father

New Orleans. Again, drone ambient and one of the best (if not the best) in recent years. Shoegaze, noise, etc. sounds.
14Twin Studies
Precious Places

Atlanta. More upbeat than the other artists, with catchy pop elements showing clearly.
15The Stargazer Lilies
We Are the Dreamers

Pennsylvania. Fuzz. Reverb. Awesome.
Smile Until It Hurts

Birmingham. What they have online now is more like dreamy indie-pop but their newer songs (not yet online) are definitely more noisy and shoegaze influenced.
