A Fistful of Bootgaze

Earlier this week, I was really feeling the smashy, thrashy, moshy...boshy(?) punk. Some good, mess-around, cut-your-hand-while-smashing-a-beer-bottle punk. But like then the weather got really overcast, and I was in a more reserved mood, so I switched over to some good vibey shoegaze. Stuff that makes you try to remember your dreams, miss your early teens, ride a bike to get places, and look at the city from a hilltop at night. But what to call this combination? Well, when I was a wee lad building decks of pokemon cards, I used to pair up two types of pokemon and then name the deck with a portmanteau. Fire and earth? Scorched Earth. Water and lightning? Shockwave! Psychic and fighting? PSY-FI! So yeah, same logic to apply here. Punks (who have a tendency to wear boots) and shoegaze (who classically stare at their own feet) combined is...BOOTGAZE! Enjoy the playlist :)
