I first heard this a year ago or maybe longer, then heard a couple more on XM Radio, now I've got everything I can find.

Great Stuff.


Mazzy Star was an American dream pop band. They formed in 1989, from the band Opal, a collaboration of guitarist David Roback and bassist Kendra Smith. Smith's friend Hope Sandoval became vocalist when Smith left the band.

Mazzy Star is probably best known for the song "Fade Into You" which brought the band some success in the mid-1990s and was the group's biggest mainstream hit, earning radio and MTV airplay. Roback and Sandoval were the creative center of the band, with Sandoval writing most of the lyrics and Roback composing most of the music.

Awesome band, do you like Jesus & Mary Chain? Hope Sandoval did some guest vocals on Stoned and Dethroned...

I listen to my fair share of shoegazing and dream pop -- and Mazzy Star definitely counts. Fade Into You is good, but I prefer Into Dust. That being said, everyone always forgets about the truly simple brilliance of Cry, Cry, and it would be a shame if I didn't at least mention it.

I agree with Crakeur about the Jesus and Mary Chain, but if you want to go to the roots of this style, start with the Cocteau Twins. Similar to J&MC, give My Bloody Valentine a shot. If you really dig Hope Sandoval (lead singer of Mazzy Star), you should also check out Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions. Other suggestions: Starflyer 59, Galaxie 500, The Church, Dream Syndicate, Catherine Wheel, and Swervedriver (Last Train to Satansville is a really wonderful song).

Damn fine suggestions there sir...

Does anyone know Swell? They were (are?) a U.S. stoner/shoegaze type band, just awesome, really miss them sometimes. My mates and I would always listen to them when we were drinking, when we were young.

Wow, going back here. I remember an ex-girlfriend that could do the most sensual slow dance to "Fade into you," probably because it was her profession, heh... That album is great for a candle lit night of fun with the lady friends.
