There's a genre of music called Shoegazing?

Is that because it's so boring?
You don't know shoegazing? It's not boring! It's lovely! One of the unique and interesting aspects of shoegazing is that often the instrumental music is considered just as important as the singers' voices and lyrics, i.e. all the instruments, including the singer, are equal in the music. There is also an emphasis on melody that is often not present in popular music.

Re: The Night Crew

I like taking my glasses off sometimes, but most of the time after 60 minutes all the eye strain gets to me and I get a migraine. If I don't wear my glasses for a few days, to let my eyes adjust, then I'm ok usually.

Ya, I have astigmatism.

But what's with the name?

Usually when I'm in a state of harmonious tranquility I'm doing anything but staring at my feet.

Well, according to Wiki:
The British music press (notably NME and Melody Maker) called this genre "shoegazing" because the musicians in these bands often maintained a motionless performing style, standing on stage and staring at their effects pedals or the floor while playing their instruments; hence, the idea that they were gazing at their shoes.
It makes as much sense as "rock," "grunge", "new wave," or "emo" to me.

Hmmm. Interesting. That definition applies quite well to swing as well. Perhaps I shall check out this "shoegazing" music you speak of.

I'd recommend Sigur Ros, an Icelandic band with haunting melodies and whose lead singer boasts an elegant falsetto (though I don't understand a word of Icelandic), and Asobi Seksu, a local band whose female lead singer has an astounding range (their lyrics are sometimes English, sometimes Japanese). Check out Sigur Ros' album, Hvarf / Heim, and Asobi Seksu's, Citrus

Re: The Night Crew

^But music, including popular music, is a hugely important part of my life, and I like talking about it. So there.

And you losers talked about sports for like, the last three pages!

Also, if you're into instrumental music I'd reiterate my endorsement for the Mysterious Skin soundtrack.

^Any punk? I was big into punk in junior high -- The New York Dolls, The Ramones, The Clash, Holly and the Italians -- that sort of thing. I still love the music, it's a shame there's not that much quality in the genre these days. Art Brut is awesome, though.
