It's really good to find out that there's still new bands coming up that has influences from Galaxie 500, Slowdive, Felt and Sarah Records. I feared that this characteristic sound will be stuck in an 'era' and days gone by. East London shoegaze band, Leave the Planet, just released a new video and its sound marries a lot of the good things from their influences while also keeping it relevant to what people would pay for to go to watch a show. They'll be having six shows in NYC so catch them (and me) if you can.
Their album will be coming out at April 17 on Kanine Records. Hope they have some advance copies at the merch table.
