Thames Valley sweethearts Slowdive started off their career desperately trying to catch up with the coattails of the larger more successful shoegaze bands like Ride and My Bloody Valentine and tended to get a bit of stick in the music press, fast for...read more »

Simon Scott

Simon Scott recently got back into his old role, as drummer for the freshly reformed Slowdive, but he never stopped with his more abstract work. Soundings was put together in many hotel rooms during tours, and mix together evocative field recordings with all manner of electronic sounds and processes. Soundings makes for a properly Touch album.

Blue Day

Here is the classic latter day Record Store Day item. A vinyl edition of Slowdive's 1992 compilation 'Blue Day'. At least its not ludicrously limited, 2000 of you have the chance of owning or re-owning these selected tracks taken from their first three EP's. Considered a joke in their lifetime, Slowdive are now one of the most revered bands on the planet, reforming with added beards for a successful tour last year.  


2017 is an exciting year for shoegazers old and new as veteran bands take advantage of the resurgence in the genre by making new albums that would have been laughed out of court if the year was 1996. Slowdive follow on from Ride in unleashing new music and though they have prosaically only managed to self-title it, this is the moment for anyone who has been waiting since 1995 for new material. 

The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology

Taking the plunge with Slowdive. The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology is a big old cross section of the bands oeuvre. Starting off in the '89 and being contemporaries of My Bloody Valentine, the 'dive poured out their own brand of shoegazing indie-rock. Think big walls of guitars and melancholic vocals which slowly easy all yer aches. Out on CD from Cherry Red. 

Simon Scott

Slowdive drummer Simon Scott was just heading out onto stage to play a set of his solo work when he heard the news of the tragic events at the Bataclan in Paris. This recording of his November 2015 set is therefore dedicated to all the victims of that terrible night. This is a room recording of the entire show, a one-off set showcasing his lovely drifting ambience inspired by the natural world. 

Minor Victories
Orchestral Variations

Minor Victories, the Mogwai / Slowdive / Editors supergroup, released their debut album together to great acclaim in 2016. This new release shows off the breadth of scope and vision that the group possesses, being a full-length suite of Orchestral Variations on the whole album. A different side to Minor Victories. Out on Play It Again Sam.


A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, reverbing hot air balloon of sound gently takes you away. Played early in the morning, in the dark, after some booze for best effects.     CD comes as a 2 disk pack with extra tunes and two remixes.

Mojave 3
Ask Me Tomorrow

A treat indeed here: the 1995 debut album of Mojave 3 (the reduced and acoustically-refocused three-piece band formed by members of Slowdive) is put back into print on vinyl after more than two decades of unavailability. Ask Me Tomorrow is a gorgeous, stripped-back listen, and it sounds wonderful on this new pressing. Edition of 500 on Sonic Cathedral.


Pygmalion was the third album by UK based shoegaze dreamers Slowdive and their final album until their 2017 self titled comeback. It was a superb album which altered their aesthetic somewhat towards more ambient compositions and was nearer to the post rock of Talk Talk and Bark Psychosis than it was to their earlier guitar-shredding sound. Hugely influentia,l the record struggled somewhat on release mostly down to the British music press's seeming distrust of the band but has since gained a much deserved legacy all of its own.    

Just For A Day

Slowdive have their debut reissued on wax by Music On Vinyl. When Creation released this in 1991 a sticker on the front read "like a mind altering substance, without the risk". Compare it to Souvlaki and Pygmalion and decide on your favourite. Lets this 180 gram press help you. (The CD version here is on Cherry Red features lots of extra material, Peel sessions, etc).
