Yeah, it's March 20, but that doesn't mean you need to jump into spring all at once. Let Neil Halstead and friends guide you in slowly.

Before Andy Bell was jamming with the Gallaghers, he was laying down tracks with Ride in the early '90s.

10. Galaxie 500 - Flowers

Dream pop with hints of shoegaze, Galaxie 500's debut album shows that three Harvard grads can make the perfect springtime album.

*Also, fun fact - Galaxie 500 borrowed a drum kit from fellow Harvard student Conan O'Brien to start the band.

9. Nothing - Beat Around the Bush

Hey, nothing says 'springtime' like a frontman accused of murder, eh? Let the new and improved, murder-free Dominic Palermo's droning guitar riffs hold your hand as you step delicately into the new season.

8. The Jesus and Mary Chain - Sowing Seeds

Ah, TJAMC. Let these shoegaze forefathers (or, if you will, forebrothers) sow your spring seeds.

7. Weekend - Comma Summer

No, not the German Rapper and not the Canadian producer. This San Francisco group adds a new edge to shoegaze, one that will help shake off those last shreds of winter blues.

6. My Bloody Valentine - When You Sleep

How could this list be complete without ol' MBV. This classic off of the critically acclaimed 'Loveless' will sweep and swirl you into warmer weathers.

5. Swervedriver - Rave Down

When it's just a little too cold to go outside without a coat, put on some Swervedriver and brace the brisk spring air.

4. Slowdive - Machine Gun

God, Reading bands just killing it this season. You can't talk about shoegaze without paying respects to the legendary Slowdive (really, you can't, I've tried). Just sit back and ride this Souvlaki train into spring.

3. No Joy - Lunar Phobia

What's that you say? Not enough 'Nu Gaze' on this list? Fear not. Canadian duo No Joy is here to bring your spring into the 21st century.

2. Lush - Scarlet

Nothing warms my heart more than a buncha British women making sweet tunes in the late '80s. Let Lush warm you up to le printemps, one dreamy vocal at a time.

1. Seefeel - Industrious

British outfit Seefeel isn't necessarily the first band that comes to mind when discussing shoegaze, which is unfortunate, because 'Quique' is the perfect album to play while picking daisies and doing other fun springtime activities.
