Re: New Slowdive

It's definitely more shoegaze-y and less abstract than Pygmalion, which makes sense because I'm pretty sure Pygmalion was just Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell whereas now the original band is back together. The sticker on the cover said something like they've managed to retain the essence of the Slowdive sound without recycling anything. I think the description is pretty apt. It's markedly Slowdive, but it's also something new.

For me, 'Sugar for the Pill' is a good representation of the album overall while 'Star Roving' is possibly the weakest track on the record. The whole album is available on Spotify.
