Free at Noon Flashback: Shoegaze legends take the crowd on a buzzing, high octane Ride

Fuzzed-out, atmospheric, gauzy greatness. Yep, you guessed it – I’m talking about shoegaze.

Neither was the Free at Noon crowd today, who piled in droves this muggy afternoon to WCL to give a warm (literally) welcome back to shoegaze legends, Ride.

R-I-D-E. These four letters stood big and bold behind the band as they made their way onto the ...

Ride: Weather Diaries

Ride is arguably one of the most lauded British bands to come from the “shoegaze” movement. Their debut album, 1990’s Nowhere, was heaped with praise by critics and fans alike for its wall of noise, and the band’s name is often uttered in the same breath as My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth.

However, Ride were also just really good at writing songs, not saying the other bands weren’t, but Ride slowly moved their focus from that wall of noise and art rock, to songs that use the noise as another instrument within the pop ...

Ride tease even more brand-new material with the relaxer “Home Is A Feeling”

Shoegaze is back, baby. As bands like Slowdive resurface alongside Lush and My Bloody Valentine, it was only time before staples Ride get in on the action. The follow-up to 1996’s Tarantula is in the making, and as we get closer and closer to the release, the band continues to tease every die-hard by hitting us this time in the form of “Home Is A Feeling”

We’ve got some good ole fashioned shoegaze here everyone, as the 3+ minute track takes its sweet time to create some ambient goodness. Classic clean guitars and filling bass guitar ...
