Hit of the week: Slowdive “Sugar for the Pill”

The reunited shoegaze outfit formally detailed the self-titled LP, which will hit shelves May 5th through Dead Oceans.

The long-awaited follow-up to 1995’s Pygmalion was recorded at the band’s “talismanic Oxfordshire haunt, The Courtyard,” and was mixed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear). A press release describes this fourth full-length as the English shoegaze outfit’s “most direct material to date,” while also noting that it isn’t meant to be “a trip down memory lane.”

Principal songwriter Neil Halstead says that their 2014 reunion tour had an impact on the making of the new album. Along with the LP news, Slowdive have shared the music video for “Sugar for the Pill”
