Spoonfed Hybrid (1993)
This is one of my all time fave albums and I keep coming back to it again and again. Ian Masters from Pale Saints with that other guy named Chris Trout. They put out a few little other things, but this one was just an absolute masterpiece of sadness & beauty. Not really shoegazing...in fact I wouldn't say it's shoegazing at all. Too minimal for that. It was released on 4AD's offshoot label called Guernica. It's a classic 4AD release to my ears, though. Worthy of the 4AD trademark (for whatever that used to mean).
