In the 90s, the shoegazer genre left faster than it came. By the time most people discovered it, it was already gone. My Bloody Valentine and Ride broke up within years of forming. Lush went pop. And most fans of the genre were stuck discovering the other various bands through the used CD racks and cassettes of bootlegs from poorly sounding shows.
As with all good genres, they may burn out quickly, but their influence last forever. In recent years, shoegazing has sprang up everywhere. It’s like everyone was so desperate to hear more music from the genre, that they went out and started making the music themselves.
Asobi Seksu has made a solid career out of working diligently in trying to sound like they’ve been transplanted to our time from the 90s, to save us from Fergie. Thank you, time traveling Asobi Seksu…thank you.
