We’ve all heard of Cymbals Eat Guitars, but what about Stagnant Pools? DJ Alex has the “inside scoop”:

Stagnant Pools are one of those bands I found through another band that I found through another band on Facebook. This was a few years ago, at the height of my My Bloody Valentine phase, and not long after my brother and I started our two-piece band, The Gentlemen Broncos. So of course I was excited by two people playing something like shoegaze. The song “Consistency” really struck a cord with me. The swirling distortion was everything I loved about shoegaze, and proof that two people could make that sound. Plus the opening line (“This i the last place that I want to be…”) is dramatic in all the right ways. My brother and I never actually wrote any shoegaze, but this song is still super groovy. What a tune from some fellow dudes trying to make it.
