Static Daydream, a new project from Paul Baker, formally of Ceremony, and Skywave.

Apparently there's a proper release coming soon on Moon Sounds Records.

I do like how this is basically a metal forum thread. I've been a little out of touch with shoegaze stuff for a while. After hearing Silver by Jesu I've had the itch again.

I've never really clicked with Jesu, but I've only heard Ascension, which I gather might not have been the best place to begin.

I've also recently revised Secret Shine and have been really impressed with them, which is odd as I didn't think I liked them that much.

Also been listening to a lot of Skywave lately too.

I think Ascension is regarded by most as their worst. Definitely check out Silver, Conquer, and Sundown/Sunrise. Silver especially. Fantastic shoegazy post-metal.

I think it's been long enough that I can re-evaluate them more neutrally. I like the look of Sundown/Sunrise, so I might start with that, and then Silver. Cheers.

I thought this might be an appropriate place to post this. My wife and I actually traveled to London (we're from Canada) to see Slowdive's reunion show at the Village Underground. Definitely one of the best shows I've been to - I'll probably get around to posting a review at some point.

We stuck around after the show and got to meet Neil, Rachel, and Nick. Pretty much a dream come true.

I have to say, I'm rather jealous. Had I been able to afford it, it'd have definitely been something I'd have wanted to do.

What was the set like? Mix across the career, or did they seem to focus on a particular era?

It was a great overview of their entire catalogue, though it was a little heavier on the early material:

1. Slowdive
2. Avalyn
3. Catch the Breeze
4. Crazy for You
5. Machine Gun
6. 40 Days
7. Blue Skied an' Clear
8. Souvlaki Space Station
9. When the Sun Hits
10. Morningrise
11. She Calls
12. Golden Hair
13. Rutti
14. Alison

Everything was beautifully executed. The live rendition of "Crazy for You" was very different from the studio version, which was a little bit of a disappointment given that the studio version is my favourite Slowdive track, but I was surprised at how good everything sounded and especially at how fluid and tight a rhythm section Nick and Simon were. They sounded as though they had been playing these songs together all this time.
