Founded by Anth M and joined in 2013 by Luca and Misa (bass and drums, respectively), the band has built its reputation on the back of a strong but delightfully eerie atmospheric sound – a tripped out blend of shoegaze, space rock with hints of inspiration drawn from any number of genres. 2014 has signaled a further evolution of Last Movement’s sound with the release of some new tracks including the hauntingly addictive “Feels Like You”. It’s got all of the qualities of a Last Movement track – distant but clear, resonating vocals swirling with reverb soaked guitars and chorus-heavy melodic leads – but with a nice little groove to it. The band’s entrancing formula wisps you away over the first three quarters of the song before a crescendo into its big wailing mass of a conclusion. “Feels Like You”, as can be said of Last Movement’s entire body of work, is a breathtaking representation of a new era of dreamy shoegaze music. It’s loud. It’s beautiful. It’s confident.

VW014 // Venera4

Venera4_VWLike a beautiful symphony created from chaos.
Venera4 is Two boys and two girls are shoegaze bands met and formed in France. Its name seems to have been named after the Russian Venus orbiter.
“Seabed Terror” is their first single, where a chorus is very impressive. The rough guitar noise will feel the shiningly diffused reflection of sun in the deep sea, and forming a crazy beautiful noise as crave it. On the other hand, BORA BORA has a slightly nostalgic image. Venera4 which was launched in the outer space having despair and hope, like when departed for Venus. I imagine such feelings. Venera4 will convey an unknown place to us.
And other day, I received great news from them! They released second EP in march april! A remarkable their high aesthetic sense of works!

Ummagma is the Ukrainian-Canadian duo formed in 2003. They are affirmative against all kinds of music and could be said that it is shows the alternative method for experiencing the world. That is why the blog and the radiobroadcast offer to them will not stop.
Voice that is reminiscent of Elizabeth Fraser of the heyday and the contrast that multiple guitars weaves are splendid. Liberation of the sorrow, and pleasure to depart for tomorrow. The synchronism of sound images that shoegaze, acoustic, and electronica various elements have been condensed. Especially these 2 songs are symbolizing it, You will have to listen to it for sure.

Mystical Sound that seems as if it is depicting a story.
Plastic Flowers is a band that is based in Thessaloniki, Greece. Their activities are held in art museums. Their sophisticated music has beauty like contemporary art and has sharp edge of an artist. “White walls painted black” is electronic base sound but at the same time has organic feel to it, because of the arrangement of the violin and the cello. and their music video is also made very beautifully. By playing their music, reverberation that spreads mystically should take you on a journey to the transparent world.

Beautiful vision beyond everyday life.
Sometimes image captured in films and pictures stays with us forever. Brayn Cox is a Musician / producer based in Kansas City. His solo work SOFT LIGHTING creates light and shadow, scent and  feel of that image with a warm sound from analog synthesizer. The very dreamy new remix of Far Way , “Far Way(1985 Remix)” that he delivers to us makes you feel like you are traveling in the skye full of stars. I can gurantee that shoegazer and chillwave fans will love the album “Slow Motion Silhouettes” that includes “Far Way” !
