Black Hearted Brother is a project featuring Slowdive’s Neal Halstead. Here they are with “(I Don’t Mean to) Wonder”.

Shoegazer Sunday: Alcian Blue/The Antiques Cover Slowdive’s “Primal”

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

The sound quality is not the best, and the vocals pretty much suck, but this cover by Alcian Blue (AKA The Antiques) is still the best live cover of “Primal” I’ve heard from anyone (including Slowdive, who only played it at early shows, and not particularly well).

Like I’ve said before, anyone doing good cover of “Primal” will get linked in this space.

As for Slowdive, their new tour shows their live shows have improved considerably, as we shall see next Sunday…

Shegazer Sunday: Tripwires’ “Cinnamon”

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s UK psychedelic shoegaze outfit Tripwires (not to be confused with Midwestern frat rock band Tripwire) with the short, high octane “Cinnamon.”

I think the video features footage from Alejandro Jordowsky’s Holy Mountain, which includes some very brief nudity.
