It’s that time where I go to two of my favorite music aficionados, Mark Levy and Brian Haviland for the tunes they can’t live without. If you’ve been following MFL for the last few years, you’ll recognize these names. We each picked 6 or 7 songs that we couldn’t stop listening to in 2017 but I’m not going to tell you who picked what. It’s more fun that way. ENJOY!
The last we’d heard from Slowdive was their record, Pygmalion, from 1995. 19 years later, in 2014, the band announced that they were getting back together. Now in 2017, they re-introduce themselves to new and old generations of fans with their new track, “Star Roving.”
The new single is equally as expansive, cyclical and lush as we remember the sounds of Slowdive to be. They have a way of filling space with sound that is unlike any other.
In addition to releasing their new single, Slowdive also announced their signing with Dead Oceans.
