Shoegaze Albums & Songs Of 2017

The year in shoegaze and dream pop reviewed; with over 100 albums and songs listed (the playlist runs over 8 hours if you stick with it). This one’s a little out of control! It’s been months in the making so I hope you find something to like. 2017 has been an incredibly strong year for shoegaze fans, there’s so much to dig through. The music below covers a range of reverb-centric genres: jangle pop; psych; noise rock; shoegaze; ambient; dream pop, and so forth. There’s a genre column on the album list to assist the purists, which you can sort yourself. It’s been organised by release date but I’m going to chat through a smaller list of faves.

The rock gods have been kind. The reformation of classic acts continued in 2017 (following Lush last year) we had Slowdive’s first new record in 22 years! The album has been critically praised, so have their live shows. In 2018 the quintet will tour Australia for the first time. Plus Slowdive’s Simon Scott has already confirmed that the band is hitting the studio next year, so a follow up release shouldn’t be another 20 years off. Speaking of, Ride also released their first new album in a few decades; ‘Weather Diaries’. The British rock legends teamed up with Erol Alkan and Alan Moulder (Nowhere/Going Blank Again) for the record. A welcome return. Not to forget fellow shoegaze luminaries Secret Shine who delivered a new long player, ‘There Is Only Now’. In the new year we can also finally get our hands on the vinyl remasters of My Bloody Valentine’s ‘Isn’t Anything’ and ‘Loveless’. Check out the Rolling Stone interview if you missed it, it’s an interesting read. According to Kevin, a new MBV LP may land mid-2018. Or mid-2028. One of the two. Maybe.

In terms of must-listen shoegaze albums, here are a handful…. First up, Pia Fraus’ decade long return with ‘Field Ceremony’. Everything Seksound puts out is quality and this record is flawless. The Estonian veterans make it sound easy. Another must is Airiel’s ‘Molten Young Lovers’ (released on Shelflife this October). Airiel’s second full length was worth the wait, and it was a long one. It’s dreamy, loud and danceable all at once. Don’t miss it. Brisbane-based shoegazers Deafcult delivered their debut album ‘Auras’ and it has barely left my record player. After their turbo-charged 2015 EP I wasn’t sure which direction they’d go. ‘Auras’ has depth and diversity. Love it. Fellow Aussie noise-makers Miniatures gave us another top shelf debut, ‘Jessamines’ (thanks to Saint Marie). The Kiwi ex-pats worked with producer Matthew Hosking to craft a layered gem. They’ve been creating amazing tunes since 2012 and its great to have a full length from them.

Colorado’s Gleemer gave us the dreamy ‘Anymore’ (via Other People Records). The dense and melodic LP is a DIY effort with plenty of punch. Gleemer are currently on tour throughout the U.S with Hundredth and Tennis System. Meanwhile Panda Riot returned with fresh tunes in 2017, delivering ‘Infinity Maps’ which was four years in the making. The LP is a worthy follow-up to 2013’s ‘Northern Automatic Music’ and weighs in with a hefty 18 songs. In June Leeds shoegazers Colour Of Spring delivered their self-titled EP, another stellar release. Their combination of fuzz and melody has attracted the attention of NME, Clash and The Line Of Best Fit. Brooklyn foursome Infinity Girl released their third full length ‘Somewhere Nice, Someday’ which is an easily digestible swan song. The band announced the record while telling fans it would be their last. Let’s hope that’s not the case.

Nebraska noisemakers See Through Dresses released their dreamy LP ‘Horse Of The Other World’ this year (through Tiny Engines). Since their debut LP in 2014 the band have toured through the U.S., Canada and Europe. Check them out if you haven’t already. Monster Movie returned in 2017, unleashing their first new material in seven years! The supergroup features Sean Hewson, Christian Savill (of Slowdive), James Harrison (Air Formation) and also Slowdive bassist Nick Chaplin. Ryan Graveface produced the record and its a fan favourite already. Meanwhile Brazil’s Devilish Dear released an equally explosive record called ‘These Sunny Days’. This one could easily fly under the radar, so don’t let it! L.A.’s Froth is another must. The quartet’s long player ‘Outside (briefly)’ isn’t a straight-up shoegaze record but it delivers great guitar-driven tunes. It’s an unpredictable and dynamic listen. To wrap up the 2017 shoegaze releases of note, do not miss the short but awesome split release by Kindling and Kestrels. It’s got two originals and two covers (of The Replacements and My Bloody Valentine). All rad. Lovely work Noyes Records! You’ll find those tracks in the playlist below.

Dream Pop. This year there was an eclectic crop. However, You’ll Never Get To Heaven immediately stands out. The Canadian duo released ‘Images’ through Yellow K Records. It just oozes class. This is highbrow dream pop done right! Excellent songwriting. The new album from London’s Plastic Flowers is also impressive. ‘Absent Forever’ marks his third LP, an analog recording with DIY charm. It was crafted while studying for a PhD… so kudos! In October, Run For Cover Records gave us the brilliant ‘III’ from Sweden’s Makthaverskan. For their third album the five-piece mellowed out (just a little) so their brand of post-punk has a dreamier sheen. I love it. Maja Milner’s vocals are packed with character.

Jangle Pop. Lo-fi/bedroom pop. This year we didn’t have a DIIV album to wade through. Maybe next year. BUT… May 5 was huge. Surely it’s not a coincidence that Day Wave, Hazel English, Hoops and Fazerdaze all released their twangy gems on the same day? There must have been a conference call! Anyways, those four albums typify a solid year for lovers of lo-fi melodies. Not to forget the brilliant EP from Surf Rock Is Dead. The Brooklyn-based duo (who hail from Melbourne and Chicago) gave us ‘We Have No Friends?’ It’s a genre-blending collection that does everything right. Can’t wait for a full length. Grab the EP via Native Sound. In fact, Native Sound is a label that deserves a standing ovation for releasing a tidal wave of great tunes this year. Thanks Julio! So that’s it, a landmark year. Perhaps the greatest batch of tunes since Sounds Better With Reverb started posting back in 2011.

NB: Please share your picks and/or notable omissions in the comments (click through the swirling logo, comments are in the footer). A few tunes have been omitted from the playlist because they are not available on Soundcloud. Sad! Next year this list will probably be on Spotify, because after many years in the desert they are now including plenty of indies. Cheers!

Pia Fraus – ‘Field Ceremony’

After nearly a decade between albums, Pia Fraus dropped ‘Field Ceremony’ this October through Seksound (Europe) / Vinyl-Junkie (Japan) / Shelflife (U.S.A). Its awesomeness is no surprise. The Estonians spent the past few years sharing singles from the album, including: ‘Autumn Winds’; ‘Cloudy Eyes/Outer Otherness’; and ‘That’s Not All’. In 2016 the Tallinn vets also delivered an extensive repressing of their back catalogue on vinyl. In other words, Pia Fraus have kept busy!

Much of the original 1998 art school line-up remain on ‘Field Ceremony’. Former members help out the core group, which consists of Eve Komp (on vocals and keys), Rein Fuks (on guitars, vocals, percussion), Kärt Ojavee (on synths), Margus Voolpriit (on drums) and Reijo Tagapere on bass. Pia Fraus’ main game is melodically-driven dream pop. However, their sound blends shoegaze textures, slowcore tempos and indie pop appeal. Two crowd-pleasing shoegazers bookend the album; ‘It’s Over Now’ and ‘That’s Not All’. Gotta admit, I’m a sucker for these two. I love both of them.

At its heart, ‘Field Ceremony’ offers fantastic melodies. The vocals of Rein and Eve are interchangeable. You’d be forgiven not to notice that its not just one voice. I’m a big fan of guy/girl vocals and they do it so well. It keeps the record sounding diverse, with each song changing the balance. ‘Brutal Truth Of The World’ is one example. Here Pia Fraus use typically loud and swoony sounds and make them sound quiet, delicate. It’s the complete opposite of what you’d expect. Instead of confronting the listener with a wall of noise they use the noise to lull you in. That’s the genius of it. Great album, one of 2017’s best.

Makthaverskan – ‘Ill’

Run For Cover / Luxury Records delivered Makthaverskan‘s third long player ‘Ill‘ this October. The Swedish four-piece mix post punk and dream pop with stunning results. The Gothenburg natives sound absolutely brilliant on ‘In My Dreams’, it’s an instant classic. Makthaverskan contrast aggression and anguish with beautiful melodies and catchy hooks. It’s an easy record to fall for. Maja Milner’s vocals steal the spotlight, and sound like they’re from another era. Producer Hans Olsson Brookes spent three years crafting the album with the band. ‘Ill’ benefits from his focused approach, its cohesive and without filler. A 2017 must-listen, love it.

You’ll Never Get To Heaven – ‘Images’

Canada’s You’ll Never Get To Heaven served up their third album ‘Images‘ on Yellow K earlier this year. It turned out to be one of the most compelling ambient/dream pop releases of 2017. The duo is Alice Hansen (singer and classically trained pianist/violinist), together with Chuck Blazevic (producer and monome master). Together they crafted 2012’s self-titled debut and the follow-up ‘Adorn’ in 2014. Their latest is a little less abstract, with ghostly compositions showered in reverb and hypnotic vocals. ‘Images’ has several interludes and surprises wedged between more pop-centric creations (such as the title track and ‘Beyond The Clouds’). The latter is a simple but brilliant tune, that sounds a little like something The Cure might’ve done in their early days. ‘Images’ is unrepentantly chill, which may turn off some listeners. However, ambient fans can go in knowing what to expect, because if you’re in the right mood then ‘Images’ is a meditative marvel. Stream in full below…

Airiel – ‘Molten Young Lovers’

In a year of multiple comebacks, Airiel‘s full-length return (the successor to 2012’s ‘Kid Games’ EP) is one of the highlights. ‘Molten Young Lovers’ has been in our hands for a few months now (arriving in October via Shelflife Records). Strange to think this is only the second album from the band in twenty years. It’s a big deal! Thankfully the Chicago shoegazers (led by Jeremy Wrenn) gave fans exactly what they want; a carefully-conceived album that doesn’t divert from the script.

Our first taste arrived months back with the ‘Cloudburst’ single. Its indicative of the quality ‘gazey indie pop we’ve come to expect from Airiel. The album kicks off with an unrepentant drum machine intro on ‘This Is Permanent’. The electronic drums give the record an 80s feel, especially on the snare-heavy opener. It’s a textured attention grabber that carefully weaves simple melodic ideas into one sonic mass. The artful arrangement of said noise is consistent throughout, it plays out as one body of work. Which is no small achievement given it was put together over several years.

‘Your Lips, Your Mouth’ is a beautiful ode that wanders off into the cinematic, with an instrumental break to vibe out to. The middle section of the album provides some great shoegaze power ballads! Airiel aren’t afraid to let the pretty vocals hang out there, opting not to sink them into the mix. The bittersweet vocals and airy synths are another head nod to the 80s new wave.

I love the record but tracks like ‘Song For You’ are too sentimental for my tastes. I needed an emotional “tea break” at the midpoint. However, ‘Red Car’ and ‘The Painkillers’ quickly came to the rescue, both confident space rockers. Overall, ‘Molten Young Lovers’ deserves plenty of play, it’s arguably Airiel’s most accomplished work. An album fans can return to. Which is important, because it may be awhile before we get a follow up.

Shoegaze And Dream Pop Albums Of 2016

shoegaze dream pop songs albums 2016

It’s time, here’s the yearly list of our most loved albums in shoegaze and dream pop for 2016! It kicked off with some brilliant EPs from LSD & the Search for God, Indoor Voices and Dear Tracks, before gifting us with some of the most exciting shoegaze albums in recent years; Rev Rev Rev, Jaguwar, and The Stargazer Lilies. Supergroup Minor Victories landed, along with the reformation of Lush. Nothing’s full length ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ gave us the crowd pleasers we’d been looking for (an instant classic). Next year we look forward to fresh music from Slowdive, Airiel, Miniatures, Pia Fraus, and the wonderful Star Horse. In the meantime, the yearly playlist has been updated and added to the bottom of the post. Thanks to everyone for your support this year (it’s been a tough one), see you in 2017.
