Episode 81: WTF is Shoegaze?

In this week’s episode, Wyndham and Christian explore the often misunderstood subgenre of shoegaze. The genre’s droning guitars, waves of distortion, and saccharine vocals are best embodied by My Bloody Valentine’s classic Loveless album, but we take the time to explore the work of other acts like Slowdive, Ride, and Lush, examining the shoegazing origins and influence along the way.

Shoegaze is almost perfect mood music for long drives and daydreaming, and we’ve compiled some of the genre’s best in our custom Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/thebrotherpod/playlist/4rXoYJgAzztNMVdB9XNLjk
