    Pygmalion - Coloured Vinyl Edition

      When Slowdive disbanded in 1995 music fans widely associated it with the demise of the shoegaze genre. Their last sign of life was Pygmalion (before they reunited in 2014) and it was, after Just For A Day and Souvlaki a totally different and more abstract album. Where the band attempted to put more song structures in place on Souvlaki, they began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica on Pygmalion. Tracks like “Blue Skied An’ Clear” and “Crazy For You” demonstrate that the songs are still there, somewhere -- they’re just buried under more abstract sounds than before.

      Available as a 25th anniversary edition of 3000 individually numbered copies on clear & green marbled vinyl. The package includes an insert.

      Just For A Day - Coloured Vinyl Reissue

        The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989 and consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar) and the band’s primary songwriter Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar). The production on Slowdive’s debut commenced shortly after Halstead convinced Alan McGee, head of Creation Records, the band had enough songs written for a full-length album. Slowdive actually did not. The group hurriedly began writing songs in the studio, experimenting with sounds and cannabis during the process. This eventually lead to their debut album Just for a Day, released in 1991.

        Available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on flaming coloured vinyl.

        Pygmalion - 180g Audiophile Vinyl Edition

        You'll know them as 'shoegazers' but as the title suggests, their third and final LP was about change. Where the band attempted to put more song structures in place on "Souvlaki", they began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica on "Pygmalion". Which resulted in a more complete album than the two previous albums. Tracks like "Blue Skied An' Clear" and "Crazy For You" demonstrate that the songs are still there, somewhere - they're just buried under more abstract sounds than before. It's still super-atmospheric, echoey and Cocteau's-ish, but this time things have really drifted and unravelled. Influenced by techno and built on loops it is a stark, haunted record, ambient and experimental. They ditched songs in favour of sounds, and this is a desolate yet strikingly beautiful record. If you like Sigur Ros then you'll love this.

        The world has finally caught up with Slowdive. A band whose reach goes far beyond just influencing music is back, with their first new album in 22 years.

        The album is called ‘Slowdive’ - self-titled in an echo of their debut EP from 1990, and is remarkably direct.

        Deftly swerving what co-vocalist/guitarist Rachel Goswell terms “a trip down memory lane”, these eight new tracks are simultaneously expansive and the sonic pathfinders’ most direct material to date.

        Self-titled with quiet confidence, Slowdive’s stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while beguiling a legion of fresh ears.
