slowdive - Pygmalion
Back in stock! Where do you start with Slowdive? Having defined the somewhat derogatorily named genre of shoe-gaze, Slowdive have cast an influential shadow over the discerning music lovers collection for in excess of a decade now, counting Ulrich Schnauss, Mum, Sigur Ros and Lali Puna amongst their most ardent Fans/copyists. Yet for all their latent talent, they've remained oddly out of reach to the majority of music fans, suffering from a distinct lack of reissues; a situation now being remedied with some alacrity by the good folk over at Castle Music. Bestowed with a drifting heart that sees rimy melodies bubbling against sudsy soundscapes and echoed snatches of distant vocals, 'Pygmalion' was released at the 'knees-up-mother-brown' nadir of Britpop, yet still sounds astonishingly fresh and consummately masks the back-room friction between Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell. Littered with tape-loops and fragmentary bursts of percussion, the Bernard Shaw titled LP is just as vital today as it was ten years ago and if rumours are to be believed, Slowdive were dropped by Creation at the behest of Oasis, it just goes to prove how sad this business can be.
