My Bloody Valentine — 'Only Shallow'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

I somehow have never seen the video for “Only Shallow” before and I haven’t really thought about shoegaze in awhile, though I don’t think we talked enough back then about how hilarious it was that an entire genre was named for a personality tic, those who stare at their shoes, since that could describe almost every guitar rock band of the early ‘90s.

MBV, Swervedriver, Catherine Wheel, etc.. all great bands and the sounds of college. The “shoegaze” thing is goofy/funny, especially considering some of these bands were pretty loud.

I think my favorite MBV song is still “Drive It All Over Me”:
