Whether you know it as #shoegaze or #dreampop, this subgenre has seen a rise in the last few years alongside the revival of all things vintage. Coming out of the 1980s, it has come back in a big way, heralding in an entire culture of youths embracing it’s iconic mix of rhythmic guitar effects supplemented by breathy vocals.
So whether you’re a fan of coming-of-age films shown in indie arthouses or you own way more striped/floral prints than you know what to do with, strap up those Dr. Martens and get ready to turn those lights down as you dance along to Musiio’s A.I. generated playlist of really amazing #shoegaze tracks.

Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style.
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…
