Revolution - The Shoegaze Revival

News about the compilation 'Revolution - The Shoegaze Revival' hit us a few weeks ago accompanied by a teaser video made by DKFM Shoegaze Radio and we had been looking forward to today's release date ever since. 'Revolution - The Shoegaze Revival' is an epic 30-track compilation comprised of outstanding original material. It was curated by UK Label Ear to Ear Records and Indonesian Gerpfast Kolektif and features 30 bands from 16 countries, covering 5 of the 6 inhabited continents, thus highlighting its universal profile. With respect to shoegaze pioneers like Slowdive and MBV, this compilation aims to bring forward bands that have been sustaining and/or enriching the shoegaze and dream pop scene all over the world with their own material. Listening to the bands, it was a chance to rediscover some of our last year's favorites among them (Sounds of Sputnik, Ummagma, CLUSTERSUN, Stella Diana, Hideous Towns) and discover some promising new ones. The compilation is free to download so don't hesitate to share it if you like it. We're hoping that this was just a start to promoting quality new music by people who love and work hard to keep this genre alive. Thank you for this awesome work!
