This episode we uncover the mystique of the Shoegaze genre.
"Shoegazing (or shoegaze) is a subgenre of indie rock, alternative rock, and neo-psychedelia that emerged in the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. Its sound is characterised by obscured vocals, guitar distortion and feedback. The term "shoegazing" was coined by the British music press to ridicule the stage presence of a wave of groups who stood still during live performances in a detached, introspective, non-confrontational state with their heads down. This was because the heavy use of effects pedals meant the performers were often looking down at their feet during concerts. The term was originally used interchangeably with "dream pop". -Wikipedia
