That's why I think this is a bit more special. There's a bit more of a punk influenced shoegaze sound in some of the songs. The new Alcest is easily leagues more tame than this is too. I like MBV, Candy Claws, Slowdive, Whirr, and Pinkshinyultrablast, but I don't listen to as much shoegaze as a lot of other people. This was anice surprise for me. I saw them in Santa Cruz with Whirr, but it was a split set so both bands only played for 15 min or so yet they were the only bands I went for.
