Re: New Slowdive

Yup, pretty much in agreement with that assessment.

"Slowdive" (2017 LP, as opposed to their self titled debut EP from 27 years back!) is nowhere near as minimal or ambient leaning as "Pygmalion", but at the same time less shoegaze than their earlier works. It falls somewhere in between, and is perhaps more commercial sounding overall. But the great songwriting is still fully intact.

For me it's very refreshing to hear new material from a reformed band which sounds as fresh as last time we heard from them (more than 20 years ago!).

I hope one day we will see the groop reunite to similar effect ;)

Re: "Golden Hair"....I'm sure you're aware it's a cover....seems odd to me to rate it as their greatest moment? But definitely one of the best covers ever, all the same!

Incidentally, does your handle "Chemistry Set" relate to the band of the same name in any way? I used to really dig their song "The Candle Burns" https://youtu.be/E75tKhtGOpw
