...Shoegazing Songs From 1990-1992. For a brief and almost forgotten time, shoegazing dominated what passed for the British indie scene. In the early '90s -- right after Madchester and right before Brit-pop -- bands such as Lush found their way into the top 40, Ride headlined the Reading festival and Curve were the darlings of the music weeklies. Influenced by the distorted swirling guitar sounds of My Bloody Valentine and the ethereal quality of Cocteau Twins songs, the music of shoegazing bands was -- as U.S. journalist Corey DuBrowa writes -- "Waves of distortion, cascading guitar feedback, oceanic swirls of keyboard and percussion, rainswept sonic vistas, washes of sound where no one voice (human or instrumental) was distinguishable from another." Named "shoegazers" by Melody Maker's Steve Sutherland for their on-stage habit of staring down at their shoes at numerous effect pedals, these groups wedded blissful guitar feedback with dreamy vocal melodies often sung by women such as Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Miki Berenyi, Emma Anderson (Lush) and Toni Halliday. More than a decade beyond the shoegazing scene's initial impact -- the sounds of these groups surfaced again. Their sound had an impact on bands such as Sigur Rós, Mogwai and Mew and also feeds back in the music of melodic electronic producers such as Ulrich Schnauss and M83. This compilation offers an opportunity to listen once again to the original shoegazers -- most of whose records unfortunately remain out of print."
