I must admit, I've been a little ambivalent in the wake of all these shoegaze titans returning to action - I'm dubious about the new Ride album, didn't dig the new Jesus and Mary Chain single, and I wasn't taken by MBV when it dropped. But this single, this is something else. This is just too gorgeous. Slowdive has crafted an achingly beautiful, visceral experience that captures everything there is to love about shoegaze in all its spacy glory. What an impressive return after a 22 year hiatus!
