Slowdive is the fourth studio album by English rock band Slowdive. It was released on 5 May 2017 on record label Dead Oceans. The album is their first since Pygmalion in 1995. The album was preceded by the single Star Roving, which was released on 12 January 2017. This is also the first Slowdive album in 24 years since Souvlaki 1993 to feature the classic line-up, as Simon Scott rejoined the band for their reunion. Star Roving. SC Distribution от лица компании Dead Oceans Warp Music Publishing, CMRRA, LatinAutor, ASCAP, AMRA и другие авторские. Slowdives second act as a live blockbuster has already been rapturously received around the world. Highlights thus far include a festival-conquering, sea-of-devotees Primavera Sound performance, of which Pitchfork noted: The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place. It was just nice to realise that there was a decent amount of interest in it, says principal songwriter Neil Halstead. lydia This Slowdive release was so unexpected and so wholly awesome that i'm still stoked. The reappearence of these earlier shoegazey bands also My Bloody Valentine's MBV had me so suprised and so grateful for good music. Slowdive - Slowdive.

Slowdive is the self-titled fourth album by Slowdive, released on 5 May 2017 through record label Dead Oceans. This is their first album in over 20 years. In fact their previous record was Pygmalion 1995. The album was preceded by Star Roving , released on January 12, 2017, and Sugar For The Pill , released on March 28, 2017. Slowdive Q&A. Listen free to Slowdive Slowdive Slomo, Star Roving and more. 8 tracks 45:56. Slowdive is the self-titled fourth studio album from the iconic shoegaze band Slowdive. Being Slowdive's first release in 22 years, it was released on May 5th, 2017 with two singles Star Roving and Sugar for the Pill preceding it's release. Slowdive offers maximum-volume shoegaze too, better than the band ever has before. Lead single Star Roving lives up to its interstellar title with easily the largest, most high-velocity guitar attack in the groups discography. Go Get It is even better: a wet hot summer groove with a savagely flashy riff to match Halstead and Goswells back-and-forth chorus of I wanna see itI wanna feel it. The words evoke Iggy and the Stooges Gimme Danger in how they can be interpreted as a quest for spiritual, psychological, or sexual transcendence, depending on your mood.

Like everyone else we want to get back out and play music again, but without financial support for the industry in the UK and a plan for reopening, we risk losing artists, crew, promoters, labels, venues and events.

Slowdive may play it a bit conservative at times, sounding more like a follow-up to the poppy Souvlaki than the experimental Pygmalion, but the bandmembers don't merely rest on their shoegaze bona fides. While the guitars are suitably drowned in FX and let loose to billow like clouds, there are looped samples running through the mix, some of the folky melodies Neil Halstead has been playing on his own come through, Rachel Goswell's vocals show much more power there are a couple times she really belts it out, and there is the occasional. bit of mixing trickery courtesy of the record.

I have the Silver version of this album. I always vacuum clean my records prior to playing (even new ones). Surface noise is minimal, and there are no pops. However on some tracks I get a weird distortion usually in the left channel. The distortion was most concerning because its unnatural sounding ... I thought the distortion was because of my turntable setup, but my system is carefully configured (tracking force etc) and I double checked everything to be sure. It happens in the same areas on the record and I have no issues with other records in my collection. Its apparent there were some quality issues. Always go black vinyl if you want quality. Amazing album otherwise though!!

Mine sounds fantastic as well (the center hole was a bit small). Got it at their US tour a year ago.

If your copy sounds bad, it may just need a good bath and scrubbing. I washed mine and it sounds perfect. Silence between tracks and during quiet parts.

I wish this worked on my wife. . . .

My copy is really nice. No surface noise (except for a little bit at the end of Star Roving), and the mastering is really dynamic

Managed to widen the holes enough to fit it on a turntable, and used the VinylFlat to remove the warps, but there is a LOT of surface noise between tracks. :(

I can't even play my copy; the centre hole is too small for any of my three turntables! It's also visibly warped (I can fix that with my VinylFlat, which usually does a great job reducing warps).

Just widen the hole with a twist of a kitchen knife, just 1 or 2 always does it for me.

Mine is perfect, clean, and louder than the Japanese blue wax. No surface noise even in the quiet passages.

Super P
My copy sounds fine. There is some slight surface noise audible at times (for example during the intro of Sugar for the pill), but nothing too bad.

Mine sounds fine unlike a lot of people apparently, great album.

Have both the silver and black pressings of this. The silver is one of the worst pressings in my collection, Falling Ashes is unlistenable, while the black is perfect. Such a shame.

Love this album, but my side B almost unplayable. Significantly off center.

Great music, awful press. It's warped. 1st track on both sides is unplayable with my turntable :(

There are pops and then a click-skip on track 3 in the same place of both sides on my copy. Sending back to Normon records. How does a pressing plant manage to fuck up so bad? Guess I'll go for the standard black second pressing.

Getting rid of my silver pressing. centre holes well out!!!

A highlight of the year 2017. a surprise! ... my copy is clean. Plays perfect

On my second copy now-- pathetic quality control. Truly bad workmanship. Astonishingly crappy by even today's standards. Pock-marked, warped, water stained, full of handling scuffs, labels torn and bubbled, what dreck art thou? Guess I'll exercise my Amazon Prime account until they send an acceptable copy. This deserved better.

tons of surface noise.. what the fuck boo. oh well.

Looks like I am one of the lucky ones: my pressing is perfect. Low surface noise, minimal pops and clicks. I was actually very impressed until I read the comments here. Can anyone tell me if the downloads are WAVs/lossless formats or MP3s? Thanks!

Can anyone tell me if the downloads are WAVs/lossless formats or MP3s? Thanks! I bought mine through Bandcamp, which allows you to download both mp3 and lossless formats (aiffs I downloaded are 96khz files).

Noeluk,The download format is Mp3 /320kbit/s.( Here in europe :)

Brick my own
I have a copy of the silver vinyl and no noise issues to report at all. Cleaned it as well and really a terrific pressing.

Same. I often wonder what some of the other folks have for turntables, cartridges etc... This us the 4th or 5th thing I've owned were many other buyers are complaining about noisey pressings where my copy plays more than fine... And I can't be THAT lucky all the time, right?

Same here... Not warped, not off center, and nothing noisy about my silver copy.

for some reason the release of this album has felt so triumphant and long-due even though I am fairly young and only was introduced to slowdive a couple years back. i was incredibly stoked to hear of this pressing and almost got the bundle, instead I just tried ordering it online but it was sold out or shipping was steep. they played a show in Toronto on May 5th which also happened to be the release date and did a signing at sonic boom. i was one of the first people in line and one of the first people to actually get their hands on the silver vinyl before it ran out which was pretty remarkable and they were real nice upon meeting them. im very lucky to have a signed copy, just a little sad I couldn't see the show that night because I was underage though I did make some friends who were too and made their way to the guest list!that aside, the album is beautiful. the gatefold is soft and visually pleasing. the silver is a treat. actually getting to spin it, not that great. it was a bit warped and skipped around the end of side b, a lot. Not that bothersome though

Really glad to hear all of this! Encouraging to hear about newer fans to pass the torch on!

I bought the silver record directly in a store, My copy is hardly bent. I do hear some very tiny surface noise/pops during Go Get It and Falling Ashes, but nothing unusual.

Gave this it's first spin yesterday. Sadly I've got a warped and off centre copy too. Quality control seems like is has been non existent with this one. What a shame, it's a great album and up there with Slowdive's best work.

It's a silver coloured record - of course there's a slight increase in surface noise during the quieter sections. I'm not sure what people were expecting, but at least a cleaner black edition is also available.

I have some surface noise on side A but nearly no noise on side B, only little surface noise on the last song. I have the silver vinyl edition. Overall an great album!

I was curious as to why folks kept reporting that there is significant popping noises on "Falling Ashes"... So, first I listened to the vinyl and it was pretty clear and audible. Yes. There are noises, but they are a bit more rhythmic than random. I downloaded my mp3's, loaded them into iTunes and put on my Beyerdynamic DT770's. I know, not the best, but they are pretty damn good. Anyway, there is instrumentation in the background that can easily be mistaken for pops in the vinyl. Check your digital sources. You will hear it there too. It will just come across differently to your ears. You really might have to use headphones. My copy is clean and centered with a slight warp that should mellow out over the years ahead. This is a fantastic album.

Both of my sides are off center and its warped. I have some surface noise on side A too. I've had bad luck w Dead Oceans/Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian. They distribute together and I've had issues w literally 50% of everything I've bought from those labels. Wherever they press these albums is shitty on the qc. Its a shame because the album is fucking great.

I agree about the album, might be the best of the year. Spinning it again, it's a bit warped. I want to return this but not interested in repeating this and getting same quality. I'll likely go for it, hope for a quality copy.

On my copy the label on Side A is approx .5 inches off center. Anyone else get this? Fairly quiet on Side B however so ok there.

Love the album, not 100% satisfied with the silver vinyl though. While good and clean sounding overall, the last songs on each side turn into a crackle and pop-fest. While it's bearable on the a-side, the last song on side b is totally ruined by it.Is anyone's limited edition free of surface noise and pops? Wondering if it's worth to return it for an exchange copy or just accept it...

Seems like all the silver pressings are not the best. Mine is the same. Quite disappointing.

I agree with everyone. This is an amazing album and, right now, it is my favorite lp of 2017. My silver vinyl has some surface noise, but not enough to warrant a replacement. Get it if you can!

Last track of side B, crackles and pops... sad because it is the most quiet song of the album..

No pops on mine but side 2 is really whirry! Great for shoegaze but it spoils the last track :(

Same problem on my copy! What a downer for such an otherwise excellent album...

Funny duck
The copy I have is also signed ordered from resident records.

This new album is a little bit more pop and easy than their early work, but it makes this a stunning album. Guitar wall is as great as ever when it is let loose! Pressing is good quality except at the last song some cracle and pops in low volume. I can live with that.

I've listened to the first track and I'm overwhelmed with excitement.. waiting for my physical copy!!! Cassette and Silver Vinyl.

This may well be their best LP. I was initially weary of this release but was presently surprised to find they had created some of the strongest work of their catalogue. If you like Slowdive, you will love this LP>
