At the Drive In, whom White-Gluz cites, is a surprising touchstone for a band most often compared to shoegazers like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive and whose third-full length clears the fuzz for…

  • watch a documentary about Slowdive's 'Souvlaki'

    Slowdive's 1993 album Souvlaki is a shoegaze classic, all shimmering haze and ethereal vocals, with great songs at the root.

So I was pretty blown away." Elizabeth Fraser and Robin Guthrie were just two impossibly diffident teenagers in love when they managed to change the face of independent music in the UK by giving birth to a sound that...

  • Native Lights – “Black Wall Street” (Stereogum Premiere)

    Native Lights combines the forces of post-rock veterans Bryce Chambers of Ester Drang and Johnathon Ford of Unwed Sailor. The result is a sound that’s as deep and dark as classic shoegazers like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, but on an even grander scale. “Black Wall Street” immediately pulls you into a glittering abyss before [...]
