Alcest. This band is more associated with metal than other bands posted on this thread, but it's basically shoegaze in every respect. And quite beautiful.


Very cool, great stuff

Man, the LIlys have so many winners.



They sure do. I only have the above ep, but correcting that oversight now!

Longtime readers will know I hold the Boo Radleys Everything's Alright Forever record in high esteem. I know that they reached higher and struck gold with Giant Steps and then I gather they had a pop hit or two in the UK, but I still love this one. Here are two . . .

Mike, it was the 11 minute white noise bit that did me!

The first time I just about got through with my fingers in my ears!

The second time I knew it was coming and spent 11 minutes in the toilet!

Great stuff though!
