Video of the Day | Throwback Thursday: Slowdive

Share this post

As one of the dreampop-iest of shoegazer bands reforms after an exceptionally long hiatus — about twenty years — it’s worth reexamining the minimalist, jangly guitars and droning, ambient fog of Slowdive. The idea: that getting five former bandmates back together to play and perform a couple of gigs (including Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival) will help determine whether they have a new record in them, while providing the funding to “Shine” once again.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
