I love Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine, but I'm very absent in knowledge as far as the genre goes. Strangely, I caught Broken Water at a little cafe show almost two years ago and it was GOOD. Which reminds me, I need to archive their music for purchase later.
Shoegaze is one of those genres that I either love or I hate. When I actually find time to sit down and listen to Loveless as a whole, that album is simply mindblowing. But it can be drawn out a little long for me sometimes. But The Antlers, Asobi Seksu, and a couple of others I will listen to every now and then.
