- I Listen To Shoegaze - by AbXorb - I Listen To Shoegaze - by AbXorb
I promised this one would come, so here it is: the stamp for the very few shoegaze(r) listeners out there. :)

From Wikipedia:

"Shoegazing (also known as shoegaze) is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. (...) The British music press — particularly NME and Melody Maker— named this style shoegazing because the musicians in these bands stood relatively still during live performances, whilst concentrating on their effects pedals on the floor, hence the idea that they were gazing at their shoes. (...) The shoegazing sound is typified by significant use of guitar effects, and indistinguishable vocal melodies that blended into the creative noise of the guitars."

Examples of groups that are classified as shoegaze are My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Chapterhouse, Lush and (in some instances) M83.

If you listen to the shoegazer genre, and love it like I do, place this in your journal! Use :thumb 131596068: (without the space) in your journal.

Software: The GIMP
Time: 15 minutes

Other music stamps:
Alternative
Electronica
Post-Rock
Post-Punk

To the Final Fantasy fans out there: the My Bloody Valentine album Loveless was referenced in the first part of the game Final Fantasy VII, on a billboard. ;)

Thanks go out to ~pillze69 for the sample stamp. :aww:

There's an amazing Croatian shoegaze band called EMBASSY 516 from Dubrovnik. It's worth checking out...
