Here’s 6+ hours of brain melting shoegaze, psych, dream pop and jangle pop songs! Handpicked from 2016 releases (as featured on Sounds Better With Reverb this year). As usual, the monster mixtape (almost 100 songs) will keep growing until the year is out. If you’re thinking “yay songs but… what about the albums?” Check out the newly updated list of shoegaze and dream pop albums here, there’s a shed load of albums (listed by release date). 2016 has produced some brilliant shoegaze releases; it kicked off with the Indoor Voices EP, Matt Bartram’s solo effort, Italy’s marvellous Rev Rev Rev, Jaguwar’s off the wall ‘II’ EP, Nothing’s epic new album, Thud’s stand out single, and just last week, Kindling’s ‘Everywhere Else’ LP. Switching to dream pop; Leave The Planet’s ‘Nowhere’ EP is a must, with solid LPs from Miserable and VHS Dream. LSD and the Search for God gave us one of the best psych/gaze crossovers ever with their ‘Heaven Is A Place’ EP, not forgetting The Stargazer Lilies, and Good Morning TV ‘s psych pop gem. In dreamy jangle pop land there’s been the lauded DIIV record, as well as great releases from Crescendo, Dear Tracks and Tape Waves. Plus there’s a heap of records slated for release in the coming months; Turnip King, Mumrunner, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, Panda Riot, Miniatures, Mahogany, Dead Horse One, Airiel, and next year – Slowdive!
