Was shoegazing up a storm for days recently. I want to impress D. I've been trying out different techniques for it and settings. Thusfar I've managed to mostly or completely phase out the sound of plucking the guitar strings, very similar to Scott Cortez's guitar style in his two person group with Melissa Arpin, lovesliescrushing. I'd like to be able to be more like the other shoegaze groups I love too. But I'll definely retain and work on the lovesliescrushing inspired sound, as I've never heard anything remotely like that in a live setting. I highly doubt that the vast majority of people in the world have either, at best.
I'd like to have a nice shoegaze side project going with a woman on vocals. I'll try D out. Hopefully I will be unbiased and she will still work out well. I think it'd be really healthy for me to move from such complete extremes as the abrasive assault of harsh noise, all the way over to the smooth overwhelming beauty of shoegaze. Ideally, if I ever put together a band, I'd want it to be post-rock. But I feel I'll be completely content just doing harsh noise well. Hopefully I'll be able to vent a lot of awful things into there, to be turned into something truely wonderful.
