Bands similar to slowdive
- "gold" click here for music samples - lots of layering! Highly recommended.
blind mr. jones
- "stereo musicale", "eyes wide" e.p., "crazy jazz"
- "flower" ep. I can't vouch for the rest since I have never heard it.
Difference Engine - "Breadmaker" only (out of print) - This is the Rhode Island band now on Bedazzled Records. Their 2nd in print release is good, but not slowdive sounding at all.
Secret Shine - out of print - all good stuff, "Love blind" single is my favorite. (Sarah records)
Altonbarn's Secret Shine
Blueshift Signal - "waterside" ep - very mellow, not a ton of vocals (1997, Ethereal records)
Colfax Abbey - Audio Samples
Lets not forget about other staple shoegaze bands.
These bands don't sound like slowdive, but many slowdive fans love 'em.
My Bloody Valentine
