Moose - Jack EP

With several effects at their disposal to morph their guitar sounds, no wonder Moose belong to the league of shoegazers. They literally have to keep staring at the ground to switch their pedals from one effect to another! Moose have captured the essence of what The Jesus And Mary Chain have been accomplishing in all their existence, making beautiful noise. They have defied all laws and standards of making the so-called "good music". For Moose, occasional out of tunes is not a taboo, feedbacks can be deliberate and instruments can be the foreground.

Mayfields - Deeper Than The Ocean 7"

Catchy melody with the likes of The Smiths, Love Parade, Bradford and Hardy Boys, this record is for sure to catch guitar pop fans attention. Not much info about them except they were formed in Bristol and this record was released by one of my favorite record label, Bus Stop. I could see the consistency in them since these two songs are just absolutely terrific. For people who appreciate good neo-acoustic tunes please make sure you don't leave this website without downloading these two song single or you'll be missing a lot!

Fantastic Something - The Night We Flew Out The Window EP

My one of the sought after EPs finally in my hands! Randybazooka was the first to have this and ever since I've heard of it I've been dying to get my own copy. I also found this on one of the Japanese indie collector's website along with Bluetrain's Land Of Gold (my next target, lucky Cino has one), The Tempest, early The Farm, etc. I wonder what happened to that website though. Its indiepop like you've never heard before. It has the jazzy feel blended with soft voice and clean guitar. If you see one like this don't let it slip away, I almost did. Not because I didn't buy it but because the seller from this auction site turned into a non-registered user even before he shipped the item! I was able to get it after weeks, (or was it months) of waiting though, whew!

Lilys - February 14 7"

Who says American band can't be as good shoegaze band as the British, well not in this particular case! Based in Washington DC, this all-distortion, all-melody band will give you enough reason to love this not so popular genre. They remind me so much of My Bloody Valentine, a band they were heavily influenced with. Released by Slumberland, this long deleted 7" is available for download at your own discretion.

Birdie - Folk Singer 7"

From the ashes of Saint Etienne and Dolly Mixture comes Birdie, one of the relevant bands in the 90s twee world. Plain acoustic guitar with catchy hooks and melody, its their simplicity that will make you want to listen to their music over and over. So if you're in to laid back, easy listening kind of mood, but of course with a touch of quality indiepop music, listen to Birdie!
