  • Ethereal wave 
  • Dream pop

  • Indie pop/rock 
  • Post-punk

Comment: I have always thought that a serious compilation should start with the teaser to give it a dynamic boost. Indeed, here it is Eternal Something's September chiming like Cocteaus on synths. As a record label entitles itself The Blog That Celebrates Itself you can be sure it comes out mainly with shoegaze inspired tracks full of purple tinged dreams, hazy beauty, colourful fantasies and psychedelic fringes. But not only this – you can hear also proto-shoegaze sounds the likes of harking back to Cocteau Twins, and Durutti Column. Indeed, all the modern ways bring back to the post-punk sound. By the way, there is represented one track coming very directly from the goth/post-punk breed and there are up a few exceptions additionally. One of those is a favourite of mine the track called Ethereal Love by Dead Serpent at utmost dreams. I would call it infinite darkgaze/ethereal wave. Additionally to the aforementioned artists there are represented such artists as Tropique Noir, Hazed, Bugjar, Pure Confusion, Street Bird, The Wagner Logic, Ikiryo, Strange Things, The Last Passenger, Elegant Dead Star, and European Ghost.
