Slowdive Are Back with Their First New Album in Twenty-Two Years

November 10th, 2017

Shoegaze pioneers Slowdive—now Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar and keys), Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar and keys), Nick Chaplin (bass), Christian Savill (guitar) and Simon Scott (drums)—formed in Reading, in South East England, back in ’89. They’d go on to employ what AllMusic calls “atmospheric harmonies, rippling processed guitars and an ambient production sensibility” in releasing three beloved albums, Just for a Day (stream it below), Souvlaki (stream it below) and Pygmalion (stream it below), between 1991 and 1995. But afterward, with Britpop on the rise, Slowdive (above, performing “No Longer Making Time” live in studio for KCRW FM) took a break with members engaging in an assortment of musical endeavors. But a few years ago, a rumbling began: a world tour in 2014 followed by working on new material in 2016. And this May, the band put out a self-titled LP (stream it below) on Dead Oceans. “It’s strange to call Slowdive a comeback album, because it seems so sure of itself. Instead, it feels like a completely logical next step in their discography,” according to Consequence of Sound. “The record fits snugly inside the band’s canon, so much so that it makes the 22 years since Pygmalion all the more difficult to believe.” And per PopMatters, “Beneath all the stylish and escapist waves of sound and texture, there is a profoundly human core waiting to be sought out and unearthed.” Make your weekend last a little longer when Slowdive return to New York City to play Terminal 5 on Sunday night. L.A. noise-pop outfit Cherry Glazerr open the show.

Burger Records Caravan of Stars Lands at The Bowery Ballroom

October 29th, 2014

Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard, half of the power-pop band Thee Makeout Party, formed the indie garage-punk label with a philanthropic bent Burger Records in 2007, becoming well known for releasing albums on cassette. As a means to celebrate the bands on their roster, they began hosting an annual Burgerama festival, in their native California. And then Burger Records decided to quite literally take the show on the road with the Burger Caravan of Stars, which comes to The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. The night’s bill includes the Coathangers (above, performing “Hurricane”), Together Pangea, Cherry Glazerr, Mozes and the Firstborn, AJ Davila y Terror Amor and Wax Witches—plus DJ Justin Strauss (of Milk ’N’ Cookies). That’s a lot of live music.
