Randall craps diamonds. Classic XKCD reflecting my life.

If you like shoegaze there's a lot of post rock out there that draws heavily from shoegaze. You'd probably dig explosions in the sky but when it really comes down to it I feel like you should just listen to more My Bloody Valentine lol. They just kick so much ass, and they're back together!
