While very new to the subgenre of shoegaze, I keep falling in love with every band I run across that is classified as such. On Sunday I had the pleasure of accidentally seeing KYOTY (Keep Your Opinions to Yourself), a New Hampshire based band. I was entranced on the spot.

Anyway, does anyone have any good recommendations? I literally only know 3 bands and need more shoegaze food to nom on.

My Blood Valentine and Slowdive are the founders, so get into them if you're not. Most of the other shoegazey stuff I get into is more metalgaze, like Jesu and most Isis worshipers.

I'm not counting Isis at all. By the little shoegaze I know, I wouldn't have put them into the same category. For curiosities sake, though, how is metalgaze definitively different?

Shoegaze isn't really sonically heavy in my opinion; stuff like Jesu and Alcest still shares elements with metal.

The December Sound - Silver Album - (Loveless Part 2)
A Place to Bury Strangers - Exploding Head - (like a mix of MBV Joy Division and Sonic Youth)
Astrobrite - Crush - (More unknown and very underrated, should be rated one of the best shoegaze bands from the last decade)
Medicine - The Buried Life - (overlooked gem from the Loveless era)
Have a Nice Life - Deathconciousness - (Not entierly shoegaze but a good mix of it with post-rock, drone and post-punk. It's more depressing but very heavy at times and one of the greatest "grower" albums of the last decade, masterpiece album)

Check those out and if you like them I'll give you more if you want.

Tool sucked also the sound guys fucked both bands up, and that was just down right disrespectful.
MBV is best in clubs though. They gave out ear plugs on that day solely for them but they are just not as loud outdoors.

I saw MBV once because Jawbox opened for them. I never liked their work much on CD, but their live show was great.
