Slowdive was a band that began in 1989 and ended six years later. The group was at the forefront of the shoegaze “movement”, characterized by liberal use of (including but not limited to) guitar, reverb, and muted vocal effects heavily applied throughout their works. The result are layers of softly sung lyrics submerged in a warm warp of instrumentation. They produced three albums along with a multitude of EPs and a compilation (this release), sporting songs from both Souvlaki and Pygmalion. They were a fantastic band.
