Sorting the Shoe(gaze) Cupboard















It honestly came as a complete surprise when we found our blog listed on several other websites as being shoegaze-related. Don't get me wrong, it is very much appreciated. It just got us thinking that it might be a good idea to go back and sort through our posts and figure out how we earned this particular distinction. After spending some time listening and falling in love all over again, it became obvious we needed to do something about it. To be clear, some of these songs are not pure shoegaze by classic or even nouveau standards, but there is enough of an influence involved to include them. In any case, this will serve as a quick reference and entertaining way to waste a few moments of your time... These are some of our favorites.
