Following my last post about alternative music genres, I am coming back to explain two more genres and hopefully bulk up your musical knowledge portfolio.

Shoegaze – Was popular in the U.K. in the early 90s; Uses heavy, dreamy but melodic guitar distortion with subdued vocals; Named as such because performers often stood and stared at their effects pedals as they played.

Examples: My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Jesus and Mary Chain

Jesus and Mary Chain – Just Like Honey

Post Punk Revival – Early 2000s movement that draws from the aesthetics of punk music and experiments with more complex musical structures and has a self-consciously art-based image.

Examples: The Vines, The Libertines, Hot Hot Heat

Hot Hot Heat – Goodnight
