Slowdive -
“Sugar For the Pill”

Here we go again. Tug at my heart strings, why dontcha? All of these goddamn shoegazers I love so much have slowly come back either through touring or releases or both. Slowdive, though…. goddamn. First, there was “Star Roving,” then the album announcement from earlier today. I don’t even want to really get into it yet. I don’t wanna have to talk about it. I don’t wanna have to justify why I like or don’t like “Sugar For The Pill” (I FUCKING LIKE IT A LOT OKAY, go away now). I’m hateful and tired of writing about shit I love, because I kind of think it’s ruining it for me a little bit. So yeah, my favorite band is back (yeah that’s right, I said it; Loveless is still my favorite album, but pound for pound, I’ll take Slowdive’s catalog over My Bloody Valentine’s any day of the week). I’m not sure how I feel about Halstead’s mustache, but it’s happening whether I like it or not (I DON’T, OKAY NEIL?). Do you want me to tell you shit you can figure out just by listening to the song/watching the video? Well, it’s like “new wave Pygmalion.” HAPPY NOW?
