Listen: Slowdive's "Slowdive"

There's literally a ton of new music today from The Afghan Whigs, Hoops, Pond, Mac DeMarco, Perfume Genius, Blondie, Day Wave, Gorillaz (technically last week, but I listened to it this week, so!) and many more, but the one album I was looking forward to the most was shoegaze greats Slowdive's self-titled sonic outing, their first in 22 years. And I am happy to say I am not least in the bit disappointed. It's nothing but captivating, dreamy and spacious. An immersive sensory experience like no other, as the eight tracks seamlessly blend with one another to engulf the listener in a blissful trance-like state. Stream it via Apple Music/Spotify.
