5 EP (In Mind remixes)
5 EP (In Mind remixes) (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile transparent blue & red marbled vinyl 12")

Indie/Alternative
  1. In Mind (Bandulu remix - Out Mind) (10:56)
  2. In Mind (Tom Middleton & Mark Pitchard aka Global Communication Reload remix - The 147 take) (13:55)
Review: Legendary Reading shoegaze band Slowdive had s short but powerful run from 1989 until 1995 (during their first spell) and that included the 5EP. In the same year, it was remixed to perfection by Bandulu and Reload and now it gets reissued on limited hand numbered vinyl. First up, Bandulu stretch the original's heavy minor chords and fatten the track out into a dubby masterclass and then the Reload version from Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard (better known as Global Communication) is even more impressive. It's a supremely blissed out cut with a slow motion rhythm and futuristic sense of soul cut on 45 rpm but just as suited to 33rpm playback.

5 EP (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile purple marbled vinyl 12" + insert)
Cat: MOV 12014C. Rel: 13 Jan 21
Indie/Alternative
  1. In Mind (3:43)
  2. Good Day Sunshine (5:06)
  3. Missing You (4:16)
  4. Country Rain (3:30)
Review: It has been said that Slowdive's 5 EP is unlike anything else the band had done by this point in their journey - circa 1993 - and unlike anything they would go on to release. A four-tracker that's largely instrumental, it's arguably their closest venture into full-blown electronica, and given it doesn't sound too far from some of the choral-infused ambient on the release schedule today it's safe to say they pulled the idea off.

Of course it's still Slowdive, masters of shoegaze, and so despite clear differences compared with preceding work and all that followed, there are hallmarks of the band everywhere. Opener 'In Mind' provides a great example of the grand yet quiet atmospheres they're best known for, painting fantastical, emotionally enchanting pictures only visible through your third eye.

Outside Your Room EP
Outside Your Room EP (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile coloured vinyl 12")
Cat: MOV 12013C. Rel: 10 Dec 20
Indie/Alternative
  1. Alison (3:47)
  2. So Tired (4:06)
  3. Souvlaki Space Station (6:00)
  4. Mousakka Chaos (6:06)
Review: Slowdive's second album, Souvlaki, defined a time and sound in rock, helping establish shoegaze as a genre and cementing the English outfit as one of the pre-eminent founding members of that movement. Combining the euphoria of electronic chill with the vastness of classical and songcraft of indie pop, it offered a purity of sound at odds with the often very full and complex instrumentals.

Outside Your Room is an EP full of tracks taken from that record, and as such is exactly what we mean. 'So Tired' feels like an opium dream, scuzzy, unkept, and yet blissful and utterly intoxicating in its own way. 'Alison' opens the scoring on a more anthemic note, vocals gently riding the waves of melody beneath. 'Souvlaki Space Station' is all build with absolutely no let off from its sparse but commanding atmospherics, while 'Moussaka Chaos' turns those elements around to rethink the entire arrangement. Exquisite stuff.

Holding Our Breath
Holding Our Breath (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile orange vinyl 12")
Cat: MOV 12012C. Rel: 04 Nov 20
Indie/Alternative
  1. Catch The Breeze (4:19)
  2. Golden Hair (4:02)
  3. Shine (5:22)
  4. Albatross (5:15)
Review: It's 1991 and all looks alarming right with the world - little did we know what was coming a few decades later. Nevertheless, the Berlin Wall has already fallen, uniting East and West, and Slowdive have been drumming up some serious support by way of that self-titled EP and sequel, Morningrise. Then they dropped Just For A Day, the debut album, and cemented their place in shoegaze ambient rock 'n' roll history.

Holding Our Breath is both a collector's item reissue, which originally arrived slightly ahead of that first full album, and an exceptional example of how newcomers can be blown away by the euphoria and strange opiate intensity of this band after hearing only a handful of tracks. Comprising 'Catch The Breeze', 'Golden Hair', 'Shine' and 'Albatross', everything soars, glides, ebbs and flows its way through stunning, epic soundscapes that are somehow loud and quiet.

Morningrise
Morningrise (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile smokey vinyl 12" + insert)
Cat: MOV 12011. Rel: 08 Oct 20
Indie/Alternative
  1. Morningrise (4:20)
  2. She Calls (5:36)
  3. Losing Today (4:59)
Review: 'Morningrise' is considered by many to be the archetypal shoegaze track. It's certainly Slowdive's ultimate track, a monumental helping of searing riff echoes, haunting white noise and hushed, floating vocals. It's more than enough to send a chill down your spine and leave hairs standing on end even without the other two songs offering support on this timeless EP.

All three tracks are taken from the band's double disc debut, Just For A Day, which itself easily ranks among the finest albums of the early-1990s. In contrast to the opener, 'She Calls' reveals a slightly tougher, more distorted take on things, with more than a subtle hint of melancholia in the air, while 'Losing Today' brings meditative moods to finish the triptych on a deep and brooding cinematic note.

Blue Day
Blue Day (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile white marbled vinyl LP)
Cat: MOVLP 1380C. Rel: 24 Sep 20
Indie/Alternative
  1. Slowdive (5:08)
  2. Avalyn 1 (4:48)
  3. Morningrise (4:19)
  4. She Calls (5:34)
  5. Losing Today (4:57)
  6. Shine (5:20)
  7. Albatross (4:59)
Review: Originally unveiled in 1992, Blue Day represents one of the most exciting periods in the evolution of British shoegaze heroes Slowdive - their formative years. Comprising the first three EPs, or at least a good chunk of each and the entirety of the seminal Morningrise, it's less of a history lesson and more a reminder of just how well the seven-piece's music has stood the test of time.

There are some notable omissions, it's true. So the Slowdive songs here are missing 'Avalyn II'. And there's no 'Catch The Breeze' or cover of Syd Barrett's 'Golden Hair' included from Holding Our Breath. Still, with the ethereal yet jangly rock of 'She Calls', 'Losing Today''s dark, almost choral atmospherics, and the white noise and discordance of 'Albatross', ain't nobody complaining here.

  7. Visions Of La (1:44)
  8. Blue Skied An' Clear (6:53)
  9. All Of Us (4:10)
Review: It could not have been less on-trend at the time. It's 1995 and the UK is getting to grips with the commercial potential of rave, house music and other dance genres, while momentum is building behind the most unashamedly 90s and British music movement in history, Britpop. Oasis are readying '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' and Blur have just introduced us to 'Parklife'. Then along come Slowdive with their third album, arguably their deepest, most serene and captivating in the cinematic sense. The vision of guitarist, singer and songwriter Neil Halstead, the tapestry of beautiful melodies presented across the record owe plenty to electronic and ambient music, although in many ways were ahead of their time in terms of how those are interpreted by a live band rooted in rock. In short, a landmark release.

  8. Falling Ashes (7:52)
Review: The return of Slowdive has been one of the minor miracles of the 21st century thus far - having originally split up in a mist of disinterest and press opprobrium in the Britpop-damaged mid-'90s, the band have watched their profile and reputation slowly rise to the extent of them now being regarded as scene pioneers and innovators. True to its eponymous name, this album is the sound of these Thames Valley charmers re-asserting everything that made them magical in the first place a full quarter century on, not to mention a dizzying collision of ethereal harmonies, heavenly guitar cascades and opiated dreamstates possessed of a timeless allure.
