I also posted this in the Oasis thoughts thread. It is an attempt at a Space Rock, dirty ambient remix of Rock 'n' Roll Star. I feel it could be better, especially since I couldn't remove the tambourine from the track as it was embedded in the rhythm guitar multitrack.
His recent work with Eno may suggest it really could be happening. If Eno is on it as well, cancel all other albums next year. Nothing is topping it.
Do you happen to know why only two songs from Slowdive's collaboration with Eno ended up on Souvlaki? I've always thought that they were the best produced on that album, so why'd they stop at two?
He wasn't necessarily the producer on those songs, he had a role similar to his on Mylo Xyloto. He declined producing the record but did come in and added certain garnishes to the tracks Here She Comes and Sing with Neil. I think that them self producing yielded the best result and made them grow better as a band in sonic awareness. Eno had an influence on Neil especially, and I believe if they had just had him produce as he did with Coldplay, their ability to craft interesting numbers wouldn't continue without him, as you see with Coldplay.
It's always great to revisit some shoegaze/neo-psych albums that you haven't heard in ages. The Verve's Beautiful Mind is so fucking cavernous and expansive, holy shit.
I've mentioned this a few times but I got Alesis Quadraverb this week and it has the same preset Nick used in Beautiful Mind. That huge watery reverb you hear in Beautiful Mind comes straight from that machine and I've already tested playing it myself. And yes, it's very close!

So I saw Slowdive in Sydney last night to a packed house...it was lush, rich, moody, layered ...the band were match fit...tight but relaxed.....the crowd were all devotees; older hard core fans and a younger second draft....I’d not heard of them before this thread so I’m glad I had the opportunity to see them
