Re: great ShoeGaze albums of all time...

I was pretty disappointed in Pale Saints last album Slow Buildings at the time. Ian Masters' next band Spoonfed Hybrid wasn't bad, can't remember what I have, I'll have to look for it.

Re: great ShoeGaze albums of all time...

Really great this Luminous Orange song - is there a link to download? :)

Ian Masters recorded an excellent album under the name ESP Continent, where he sing all the songs and it?s perfect.

Ian Masters popped up guest vocalling on this song by Luminous Orange from Japan not so long ago:

Check out this band's stuff, it's really brilliant :) How "labbish" is this song BTW?

It doesn't really sound that much like Stereolab, but it kind of reminds me of how exciting I thought they sounded when I first heard them. If that makes sense. And sung in French too :)

I think esp continent might be the same material, different name, I might be wrong.

Yes, the ESP Continent is the same as ESP Summer. I have the cd Mars is a ten, and when I listen in the computer, the media player lists as ESP Summer.

Fans of MBV, Pale Saints, Jesus & Mary Chain, etc., may like this. The Legends are a side project of the main guy in the more twee-sounding Swedish bands Acid House Kings and Club 8. To my ears, they out-MBV The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and have added dimension as well.

The new LP by Sweet Trip (from San Fran) sounds pretty good?
Any fans?

Ha, weird, I thought they sounded familiar, and I see I befriended them on myspace, but forgot about them. I don't think I saw them around here, but I might be mistaken. That clip is ok, nothing too exciting.

The new Scottish band Bubblegum Lemonade is worth checking out; kind of Lush meets Jesus and Mary Chain:

Re: great ShoeGaze albums of all time...

What about Astrobrite and Lovesliescrushing? Lovesliescrushing, especially on later album, are so experimental they rather fall into Ambient category, but Astrobrite is a juicy even-noisier version of MBV. You would probably enjoy Astrobrite if you find most shoegaze bands too watered-down in comparison with Loveless. (by the way, any Ecstasy of Saint Theresa fans over here? "Sussurate" is excellent.)

Also, any mention of All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors?
