Calling it "the greatest American shoegaze record" puts some high expectations the Swirlies, but also raises a number of questions

Author & Special Guests

For his latest suggestion, friend-of-the-show Dirty Gert drops some lo-fi shoegaze on us in the form of 1993's Blonder Tongue Audio Baton by Swirlies. Calling it "the greatest American shoegaze record" puts some high expectations on this album, but also raises a number of question, like actually defining "shoegaze."
