Slowdive 5 EP 12" on 180g 'pink / purple / marbled' coloured vinyl. The sleeve is finished in a deluxe alubrush coating. Vinyl reissue of the 5th EP from Slowdive, one of their most unique experiments that preceded Pygmallion. 5 EP sees the band dipping into experimenting heavily with electronics and beats whilst still retaining their beautiful and swirling sound. Slowdive once again succeed beautifully in producing tones that leave you numb as to how you should feel. There is an unmistakably euphoric edge to it, something heavenly, something convincing, something that takes you to places where everything is more beautiful, more colorful. 5 EP captures a brief moment of Slowdive’s journey - not quite like anything they did before it and not quite like anything after it, though it does have elements of both Souvlaki and Pygmalion in there. “In Mind”, “Good Day Sunshine”, “Missing You” & “Country Rain” are trippy, dreamy, spaced, melancholic and cinematic... Overall an essential part of the history of one of the most influential acts of the late 20th century. This rare and sought-after EP is now finally available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on pink & purple marbled vinyl. The jacket has a special deluxe “alubrush” finish. The package includes an insert with the Slowdive catalogue. Music On Vinyl 12"
Slowdive Holding Our Breath EP 12" on 180g 'flaming' coloured vinyl. The sleeve is finished in a deluxe alubrush coating. A long-awaited vinyl reissue of one of the classic EPs from the legendary shoegazers Slowdive, featuring the mesmerising Catch The Breeze which landed on their debut full length, the adored Syd Barrett cover Golden Hair, the dreamy Shine and the hauntingly dark and atmospheric Albatross. This will be the EPs first pressing since 1991. The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989 and primarily consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar), Simon Scott (drums) and the band’s primary songwriter Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar). Holding Our Breath is undoubtably Slowdive’s best EP, featuring some of their best pre-Souvlaki recordings including “Catch The Breeze”, “Shine” and their cover of Syd Barrett’s “Golden Hair”. The finale is “Albatross”. This uses atmospherics in a dark and haunting way, which contrasts the rest of the EP which is dreamy and floaty. Available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on flaming vinyl. The package includes an insert with the Slowdive catalogue. Music on Vinyl 12"

Slowdive Morningrise 12" on 180g 'smoke' coloured vinyl. The sleeve is finished in a deluxe alubrush coating. The second EP from the legendary shoegazers Slowdive, featuring one of their most iconic songs Morningrise. This is the first time this EP has been pressed to vinyl since 1991! “Morningrise” might be the best shoegaze song of all time, and together with “She Calls” and “Losing Today” it is part of the wonderful Morningrise EP. The title track elevates the pop spirit with wonderful guitar cascades. The melody escaping the chorus is then just heart-opening. Morningrise will be available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on smoke-coloured vinyl. It includes an insert with the Slowdive catalogue. Music On Vinyl 12"
Slowdive Souvlaki LP on 180g transparent/black (smoke) vinyl, packaging has a special alubrish finish. LP on 180g black vinyl. Reissue of the second studio album from Slowdive. Originally released in 1993 and following up from their brilliant debut, Souvlaki pushes the band's sound further and it sounds as though they really found their feet with their shoegaze / indie-rock / dream-pop mix. The album opens with seminal Shoegaze anthem Alison and instantly washes you over with towering waves of swirling guitars. Silken vocals and dreamy distortion are a mainstay of the album; like mixing My Bloody Valentine's Loveless with a pinch of Cocteau Twins, stirring, and then garnishing with a tiwst of Brian Eno (who's ambient input can be heard on Sing and Here She Comes). Souvlaki Space Station is exactly what is says it is, a journey to outer space through cascades of delay, and Dagger is an intimate is a track, seemingly, of heartbreak and serves as a stripped down and poignant end to an otherwise epic album. Souvlaki is available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on transparent & black (smoke-coloured) swirled vinyl. The package includes an insert and the cover jacket has a special alubrush finish. Music On Vinyl LP
Slowdive Pygmalion LP on 180g 'clear / green / marbled' coloured vinyl. Housed in a special alubrush finished sleeve. LP on 180g black vinyl. Reissue of the third studio album from iconic shoegazers Slowdive, originally released in 1995 Pygmalion would be the band's last album before going on a lengthy hiatus and didn't make another until 2017's Slowdive. Pygmalion takes on a far more experimental, ambient and post-rock style in comparison to the rest of Slowdive's work, but is no less important to their spellbinding discography. When Slowdive disbanded in 1995 music fans widely associated it with the demise of the shoegaze genre. Their last sign of life was Pygmalion (before they reunited in 2014) and it was, after Just For A Day and Souvlaki a totally different and more abstract album. Where the band attempted to put more song structures in place on Souvlaki, they began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica on Pygmalion. Tracks like “Blue Skied An’ Clear” and “Crazy For You” demonstrate that the songs are still there, somewhere -- they’re just buried under more abstract sounds than before. Available as a 25th anniversary edition of 3000 individually numbered copies on clear & green marbled vinyl. The package includes an insert. Music On Vinyl LP
Slowdive Just For A Day LP on 180g 'black' vinyl. LP on 180g 'flaming' coloured vinyl. The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989 and consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar) and the band’s primary songwriter Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar). The production on Slowdive’s debut commenced shortly after Halstead convinced Alan McGee, head of Creation Records, the band had enough songs written for a full-length album. Slowdive actually did not. The group hurriedly began writing songs in the studio, experimenting with sounds and cannabis during the process. This eventually lead to their debut album Just for a Day, released in 1991. Available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on flaming coloured vinyl. Music On Vinyl LP
