Released:
Label: Creation Records
With Slowdive's third and final album, the band distilled its woozy, laudanum-drip rock into an essence that far transcended their shoegaze origins. Eschewing beats, choruses and other rock 'n' roll trappings, the album wafts along on layers of strummed guitar, faraway voices and spiraling delay. Its plucked melodies and pellucid coos nod to the Durutti Column and Cocteau Twins, while its flirtations with formlessness pave the way for post-rock's molasses juggernaut, from Low and Labradford to Grouper.
