The term shoegaze refers to a certain short lived trend in indie music from approximately 1989 to 1992. The term was coined by the British music press as a derogatory reference to the performance style of many of these bands, i.e. these young inexperienced bands tended to stand there with guitars in hand, swaying at most, while looking at their feet with hair covering their faces. A stereotype, to be sure, but a funny one nonetheless. The music of these bands was primarily inspired by the 1988 album "Isn't Anything" by My Bloody Valentine, and also the followup album "Loveless", thus MBV are considered the prototypical shoegaze band, and "Loveless" is considered a classic of the genre. The music itself is characterized by effects laden guitar, thick with reverb, fuzz, distortion, echo, and just about as many effects as can be piled up. I frequently describe this music as "swirly". It is generally introspective, soothing, and frequently the vocals are buried so that the lyrics are very difficult to make out. Other terms I've heard used in place of Shoegaze are "dreampop", "etherpop", and "blissrock".

I got 7" because Telescopes, but highlight here is Lo Casta. Superb track, almost like outtake from Ultramarine - Every man album. Maybe under Lo Casta hides Ultramarine itself.
