Shoegaze (and Some Other Kinds Of Gazing)

im just going to name a few shoegaze bands that are worth looking up, these aren't in any particular order.
1My Bloody Valentine

Obviously had to put this band on here due to the fact that they are one of the most well known shoegaze bands, and are pretty damn good, asuming your into the genre. Definitely recommended.
2Have a Nice Life

This might be my favorite of the bands on this list. I really like the darker sound that they have, which some have described as "doomgaze". The lead singer, Dan Barrett has a side project called Giles Corey, which is worth checking out of you like this band.
3The Jesus and Mary Chain

This band rocks pretty hard, a lot more than most of the shoegaze bands out there. They are more noise rock than shoegaze, but a lot of people put them in this category, and when you listen to them you can probably understand why. They are alright, i don't listen to them too often.
4Codeine

This band is more of a slowcore band, but they have some aspects of shoegaze, and i really enjoy this band. They are very mellow, which i tend to appreciate more.
5Galaxie 500

They are pretty similar to MBV, they are really good also, but i wouldn't say as good as MBV. They are definitely worth it to listen to though, their album On Fire is very good.
6Slowdive

Yet another big name in shoegaze, their album Souvlaki is absolutely amazing, at least i think it is, but music is very subjective, so "to each their own". I would highly recommend checking this band out.
7Ride

Their album Nowhere is quite a popular shoegaze album and worth the listen, but they certainly aren't the best shoegaze band, but they are still good, and should definitely be listened to, just to get a better feel for the genre.
8The Radio Dept.

This is more of a dream pop band, but then again, dream pop and shoegaze are very closely related. Most of the music this band comes out with seems to be happier, so if you're into that, then i would recommend listening to this band.
9The Brain Jonestown Massacre

Their first album is a very good shoegaze album, after that, they became more pyschedelic. The album Methodrone is a very good example of shoegaze, as well as just a really good album, i would recommend the listen, and if you're into pyschedelic music, then check out their other albums.
10Spacemen 3

This band is extremely good in my opinion, they are more of a space rock band, but they definitely have shoegaze aspects in their music, this is one of the first bands that helped get me into shoegaze, this band and Have a Nice Life, i had heard Loveless by MBV before, but I didn't really care for it until i started listening to Spacemen 3 and Have a Nice Life.
