10 Other Shoegaze Bands You Should Know

Stella Luna

Alright, so maybe you’ve heard of Cheatahs. They did one of those A.V. Undercover sessions, after all. It’s a lot less likely you’re putting some Stella Luna on your turntable when you want to bliss out. Mostly due to the fact that their only release to date is 2002’s Stargazer, released only as a CD maxi-single. And damn if that ain’t a shame. The album’s brilliant 26 minutes are filled with beautiful melodies that shimmer on the surface of tides of distortion and reverb-drenched, gunshot drums. It’s gorgeous and a crime that they didn’t give us more to enjoy.
