  1. your picks are awesome, d, as always!

  2. I am very happy to have found this blog. The mystique of shoegaze, as well as the music, is alive and well, and not merely a curiosity for a bygone halcyon era (the early 90's). EG's interview was fascinating, and offers major insight into the tribulations and issues that confront new bands. I hope the blog keeps going!
