Default Sh!tgaze

Yes, a ridiculous label i know, but for the sake of this thread it is to be applied. A term coined to categorise an influx of bands that, from the mid-00's, have utlised an extreme, treble-heavy, lo-fi approach, amplifying sound to the absolute maximum and largely neglecting bass, to create an abrasive brand of music that flutters in and around indie-pop, punk, noise rock and even goth. Basically you could say the whole 'shitgaze' movement is based around a production aesthetic as oppose to a specific musical formula. Im sure there are those of you already aware of it so who's your favourite band?

For those not aware, bands coined with the label include:

Wavves
No Age
Times New Viking
Eat Skull
Women
Blank Dogs
*** Cop
Psychedelic Horseshit
Dublin Duck Dispensary
Ex-Cocaine
