Newer Shoegaze/related Bands

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


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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u78q-yJG4JM
2Whirr
Sway


Whirr is perhaps the best known of the newer wave of shoegaze bands, putting their own twist on the MBV/Slowdive sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrU3fhqd9_0
3Nothing
Guilty of Everything


They've gotten huge after signing to Relapse and putting out their first LP earlier this year. Punk vibes all around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9UIdlXhrBQ
4Airs
Adore


Now we get to the smaller bands. Airs, from San Francisco, mixes shoegaze with post-punk, black metal, and other sounds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xh1Tle9l3iI
5Earth Mover
Winter Introduction


From North Carolina, the band is clearly named after a particular Have a Nice Life track. https://earth-movernc.bandcamp.com/
6Threading
Azure


Dark shoegaze from Michigan. https://threading.bandcamp.com/album/azure
7Crisis Arm
Rend


From Los Angeles. Expect poppy guitar melodies under a fog of doom. https://mayflyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/rend
8Miserable
Halloween Dream


San Francisco. Kristina was the latest female vocalist of Whirr and now works as Miserable and King Woman. https://miserablegrl.bandcamp.com/album/dog-days
9Pallow
I'll Build a Well


Atlanta: Shameful self-promotion. My band, which does some kind of a mix of shoegaze, slowcore, and other sounds. https://pallow.bandcamp.com/
10Fairest
End


New Orleans. Sludgy slowcore. Think an insanely heavy Codeine or Duster. https://fairestmusic.bandcamp.com/releases
11Foie Gras
Innermost Shrine, Heavily Gilded


San Francisco. Brilliant drone/ambient solo project that sometimes features Grouper-like tracks. https://foie.bandcamp.com/album/innermost-shrine-heavily-gilded
12Balcony View
Night Falls and the Day Will Never Come


Auburn, Alabama. Another superb drone/ambient project, sometimes reminiscent of Windy & Carl. https://balconyview.bandcamp.com/album/night-falls-and-the-day-will-never-come
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. https://proudfather1.bandcamp.com/
14Twin Studies
Precious Places


Atlanta. More upbeat than the other artists, with catchy pop elements showing clearly. https://twinstudies.bandcamp.com/album/precious-places-ep
15The Stargazer Lilies
We Are the Dreamers


Pennsylvania. Fuzz. Reverb. Awesome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqPrzKV2Cfc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqPrzKV2Cfc
16Velouria
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. https://velouriabham.bandcamp.com/#_=_
