I was surprised to see “Slowdive Returns” in my inbox this morning. If they’re just now returning, who did I see at Pitchfork in 2014? Pretty sure I remember taking pictures of Rachel Goswell.
They did put out their first new music in over 20 years, picking up pretty much where they left off in ’95. I didn’t hear of them until much later, but I’ve listened since then and I’m glad they aren’t trying to millennial-up on their new stuff. They signed to Dead Oceans and will have a new record eventually (I assume).
For fans of Slowdive, I’m happy they’re making music together again. I’m not a huge fan, personally, but “Star Roving” sounds pretty good.
