Maybe not the best song examples, but School of Seven Bells is pretty awesome. Not entirely up-to-date with the "group" which basically is one person at this point though (her sister left and the guy that was with them passed away from some sort of cancer).

i agree but for some reason people always mention this band when they talk about shoegaze, iirc they're space rock originally; good band nonetheless

Im sure you know the "holy trinity" already which is My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Slowdive

I also enjoyed the Cocteau Twins, Kitchens of Distinction and Galaxie 500 a lot

Galaxie 500 is a lot less shoegaze and a lot more dream pop, but good if you are trying to figure out the roots of shoegaze as a genre. Also look at Jesus and the Mary Chain and Mazzy Star. Jesus and the Mary Chain's album Psychocandy inspired almost every shoegaze band in the 80's and 90's.

Too early to really be (and also not really to start with) real shoegaze but Les Rallizes Dénudés are real good

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyxB-pSYEKc

Heavier than a death in the family is a really ace album in general

Kairon; IRSE!

Alcest

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKZ66xuXjHk

Both sort of blend other genres with shoegaze, especially Alcest, but I think they both count.

of the non-classic era recs I can co-sign alcest, souvenirs d'un autre monde is prolly a top 10-15 all time album for me

Alcest were already mentioned a few times, and if you want pretty much more of that Les Discrets are great too.

Mira is nice. Sailors With Wax Wings are more droney but they're nice too if that's your thing.

Heavier than a death in the family is a really ace album in general

everyone should listen to les rallizes dénudés

i can back up mass of the fermenting dregs, have a nice life(i think the unnatural world is way better than deathconsciousness) pity sex, cocteau twins.

a band i haven't seen mentioned here is medicine, check out them out for some really noisey shoegaze.

Evvolves, a totally unknown band. First song is absolutely amazing.

Also, can't believe no one mentioned Neige's side project Amesoeurs:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIRfTgbiWVA

It's more of a post-punk/shoegaze/black metal mix. A lot of variation because of different band members' music influences.

The Angelic Process, a shoegaze+drone metal collab, classic in the genre:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfBd7J75L9c

Don't forget precursors, Cocteau Twins. They're early album which are more of shoegazy gothic rock are actually brilliant and less generic than their later, dream pop material. I still love it though.

Old Silver Key is a really nice Alcest rip off:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGpo2nNT3Lg

Pinkshinyultrablast is more modern and less grim, but still very enjoyable and with a nice groove.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZO2psc4En4

Same story with Asobi Seksu, top notch stuff imo.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxue5FAmew4

Also True Widow, a little bit different - slower, more psychedelic and slowcore-like, but they got very nice atmosphere in their songs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxiJSif55fk

Everything by Have A Nice life, but that has been mentioned.

If you want anything more, just ask me, I got more tricks up my sleeve.
