NEW PLAYLIST: BEFORE AND AFTER LOVELESS


Kevin Shields, frontman and founder of the early ’90s, shoegaze-defining super group My Blood Valentine, announced yesterday that the band’s long-awaited Loveless follow-up, which they began and aborted shortly after the release of that 1991 classic, is set for release sometime in late 2012. It can’t be more than two months away, which isn’t big lag time considering that MBV fans have been waiting for it to come out for over two decades. In case it isn’t just another false alarm, I thought I’d take a walk down shoegaze memory lane and revisit some gems from before and after Loveless that incarnate the album’s wall-of-sound approach, with an ear for the crests and falls that arise when the layers of vox and buzzing guitar are stacked so high that they shift across each other like tectonic plates.

My Bloody Valentine - Only Shallow
My Bloody Valentine - Sometimes
My Bloody Valentine - Lose My Breath
Slowdive - Blue Skied An’ Clear
Belong - Perfect Life
My Bloddy Valentine - When You Sleep
Cocteau Twins - Lazy Calm
Tamaryn - I’m Gone
Ride - In a Difference Place
DIIV - How Long Have You Known
My Bloody Valentine - Off Your Face
Pink Playground - Never Was
nihiti - Hymn Divisions
