There are actually alot of modern bands doing a great job of a shoegaze revival of sorts - Fleeting Joys, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, Amusement Parks on Fire, Asobi Seksu, etc. Even bands like Japandroids and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart seem to have incorporated some of that fuzzy guitar shoegaze influence in their music

It's all about separating the good from the crap, The "nu-gaze" or "****gaze" tags are stupid, don't pay attention to that stuff - there are some damn good bands who are wearing their Loveless and Nowhere influences on their sleeves if you're huge into shoegaze like I am, I'd recommend checking out the forums - thats where I found out about a lot of these bands
