Revolution – The Shoegaze Revival

a2043135049_2Today, a truly international shoegaze compilation from Ear To Ear Records and Indonesian label Gerpfast Kolektif, has been released.  Thirty bands from sixteen countries and eventhough they are all under the umbrella of shoegaze, they are completely different.

In the same way that you cannot compare Swervedriver to Slowdive each track on this album is a unique niche in the shoegaze spectrum. This is a showcase for the generation of current gazers and not a pastiche to the past.  Their influences and styles are as varied as their geographical locations.  I would recommend this album to anyone that thinks that the current shoegaze scene is not new and just bands reguritating Loveless; prepare to be completely and pleasantly surprised.

Featuired bands: //orangenoise (Pakistan) / Sounds of Sputnik (Russia) / The Yours (Hong Kong) / Trementina (Chile) / Ummagma (Canada-Ukraine) / Digilite (Indonesia) / Jaguwar (Germany) / Stellarscope (USA) / Spool (Japan) / Wozniak (Scotland) / Ether Feels (Japan) / Hideous Towns (Australia) / Lights That Change (Wales, UK) / Damascus (Indonesia) / Weird. (Italy) / Hermetic Delight (France) / Rev Rev Rev (Italy) / The Evening Primrose (Hong Kong) / Stella Diana (Italy) / Seaside (Indonesia) / Blood Lips (UK) / Magao (Japan) / Clustersun (Italy) / Duelectrum (Brazil) / Intenna (Indonesia) / Robsongs (Brazil) / Slow Motion Picture (USA) / Thud (Hong Kong) / Sharesprings (Indonesia) / Puna (Peru)
