Two legendary bands that defined two strongly related, if not inseparable, genres: A.R. Kane (interview) & My Bloody Valentine; Dream pop & Shoegaze. Textures & Reverb that is textures\/reverb. In brief, this column will gather 10 present-day shoegaze/dream pop (and around) tracks you should experience and very much likely won’t find anywhere else on the web, at least as a whole!
