Current show



Now in its second year, Houston’s Ethereal Fest launches this Saturday, January 19th, featuring a solid cast of Texas shoegaze and dream pop luminaries. Tickets for a nine-band bill are a bargain at $10 presale, $12 at door. With known names (well, known to our listeners anyway) like Glare, Angel Aura, Dottie, Processions, Daze, Fun […]

I won’t begin to pretend this is fully functional. Have had hands in code from Canadian HQ, San Francisco, Austin, and Central California, and it’s at least moderately functional. There’s still much build-out to be done before we implode our older imprint, but the hope is to make the site more engaging and easier to […]

Another year draws to a close, one last chart show to celebrate the stellar sounds 2018 has provided us. From 16 October to 1 December, we gathered votes from our listeners, and all the feedback we’ve received, and these are the standout tracks for Winter of 2018. More gorgeous jewels of shoegaze and dream pop […]

We’d always understood Austin’s Blushing had all the elements necessary to break through: songwriting, performance, personality. From SXSW showcases, to their star turn at this year’s DreamGaze ATX, it was simply understood that Blushing is poised to advance to top-tier status in the genre. If you’re only just now waking up from a year-long nap, […]

Thrilled to offer a video premiere for a project we weren’t familiar with, Starframes. It’s a warm and welcoming slice of electronic dream pop, with a classic bass line that will get your toes tapping immediately. Certainly started involuntary staff dancing in these studios! “Rising Wall” is the third single excerpt from Nicht Vergessen, the […]

A lot of folks were brokenhearted about the dissolution of the brilliant Australian band Miniatures. We would know, we were top of that list. By all accounts the breakup was amicable, geographic changes were the primary factor in the collapse of Miniatures following the release of their critically-acclaimed Jessamines LP on Saint Marie Records last […]

If you know us, you know Wildhoney. We’ve been bumping these incredible sounds from Baltimore since their first official EP, released back in 2013. They’ve only grown in stature and musical prowess ever since. From Seventeen Forever to Your Face Sideways, to their first full length LP Sleep Through It on Deranged Records, Wildhoney is […]

Even with their first release in April 2017, Glare proved they were no fluke. When you think of Texas hotspots for shoegaze and churning guitar waves, the Rio Grande Valley doesn’t pop immediately to mind. At the southernmost tip of South Texas, only the Rio Grande River separates it from Mexico. But you’re not here […]

If you’re familiar with the brilliant Dear Tracks, if you fondly recall Houseplants (who took a star turn at Kalamashoegazer XI last year), you are well aware of the collected works of Matthew Messore. Driving creative force behind both Michigan-based projects, Matt has been shaping and polishing his sonic vision for years now. Transplanted back to […]

It’s not that we’re bad at keeping the website updated. Some may have noticed we’ve kept well current on New Tracks Weekend, but haven’t posted any public-facing documentation of our efforts. It’s not them, it’s not you, it’s us. Besides chasing My Bloody Valentine and Airiel up and down the state, we’ve been doing some […]
