Album Review: Slowdive - Slowdive

Album Review: Slowdive - Slowdive

"One of Slowdive’s trademark features is their way to make large, hulking songs sound weightless, giving the listener themselves easier access into imaginary flight, slow-motion memories or fantastical reveries. On Slowdive there are moments when they create this inter-galactic grace as well as they ever have, but sometimes their desire to reinstate their ethereal prowess can seem a little prescriptive."

-I had a go at reviewing the self-titled comeback album from beloved shoegaze gods Slowdive; my full review can be read over on The 405.
