060/100 - "Souvlaki" by Slowdive
I'll readily admit to being new to shoegaze. It's a style of music that I missed in the late 80s / early 90s when I was obsessed with thrash metal and latterly alt.rock. I am delighted to say I'm onboard now!
"Souvlaki" by Slowdive was my entry point into this wonderfully sonic, delightfully aural genre. It is an album that somehow combines the aesthetics of ambient soundscaping, dreamy pop and full-on frantic guitar all at the same time. This is music to get lost in, truly immersive music, it is a personl regret that I didn't get into it sooner.
Why only 100 words?
