Mixtape #3: Shoegaze/Dream Pop

I love shoegaze. For those unaware, this style was so named for the on-stage posture that its practitioners displayed, seemingly fixated on the pedalboards at their feet. Categorization is typically pretty nebulous, so you might disagree with some of the groups included here. This is by no means an inclusive "best of" of list, but rather a broad overview of shoegaze/dream pop music. Get it Here. Already, right before posting, I realize I forgot one of my favorite bands of the past few years, Deerhunter. Oops. Check them out, too.

Track order:
0:00 - 4:17 "Only Shallow" - My Bloody Valentine
3:50 - 6:43 "Saltwater" - Beach House
6:43 - 13:30 "Silver" - Jesu
13:22 - 18:09 "That Summer at Home..." - The Twilight Sad
17:16 - 21:29 "Machine Gun" - Slowdive
21:17 - 25:51 "Moonchild" - M83
25:30 - 30:46 "Tommy Gun Angel" - Bardo Pond
30:40 - 34:01 "Pulling Our Weight" - The Radio Dept.
33:53 - 38:15 "Half Asleep" - School of Seven Bells
37:36 - 41:20 "Lantern Fish" - Candy Claws
41:17 - End "Thursday" - Asobi Seksu

Yeah, lack of Deerhunter makes me sad. But leading off with Only Shallow is perfect.
