Formed by longtime friends Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell in October of 1989, English shoegaze legends Slowdive released three acclaimed studio albums (Just For A Day, Souvlaki and Pygmailion) between 1991 and 1995 before disbanding and going in a different direction with the laidback, country-tinged Mojave 3.

Souvlaki is Slowdive's second full-length effort, issued on Creation Records in 1993. Featuring the same line-up as its predecessor including Halstead (vocals, guitar), Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar), Nick Chaplin(bass) and Simon Scott (drums), the fully-realized 10-song set finds the group truly hitting their stride on par with My Bloody Valentine's shoegazer giant Loveless. Highlighted by the surreal classics "Alison" and "When The Sun Hits" along with "Sing" and "Here She Comes" which both famously features co-producer Brian Eno on keyboards.

"Across this record, the band kicks up a swirl that matches Halstead's sleepwalking pop perfectly: Guitars stretch and swirl in slow-motion layers, and the vocals seem to be calling desperately out of them, even when they're just lazy chants. This stuff manages to be both pillowy-soft and passionately deep - shades of the way My Bloody Valentine could blur heaviness into an out-of-focus lull, or the way Galaxie 500's drowsy strum could come out with a fist in the air." - Nitsuh Abebe, Pitchfork
