something about the mixing is a bit overwhelming and not in a good way
but other than that, it's better than expected. I'm loving the sort of upbeat approach to their hazy sound

Xavier Gray

Good, but holy shit is it brickwalled to all fuck. I can hear clipping everywhere.

The Oasis effect at work...

Ian Brooks

Are you fucking serious?

Thomas Harris

really excited for the new album

Austin Cox
Austin Cox

What? There's definitely too much a modern "mix" job done on this track. Listen to something off of Souvlaki and then this and it's night and day. This is very heavily compressed.

Ethan Harris
Ethan Harris

HYYYYYPE

I agree totally. It feels a lot more maximal than Souvlaki/Pygmalion, and it put me off a little bit at first, but I think this kind of driving upbeat sound is a good direction for them.

Joseph Ortiz

it's on youtube though?

Mason Davis

it's shoegaze it's supposed to sound disorted and lo-fi and be mastered as loud as possible

Christopher Reyes

great track

Jonathan Brooks

How do you not expect clipping from this genre though? The db mix on this song sounds fine. You are right about the compression, however.

Ian Collins
Ian Collins

for real though it feels weird being excited for the comeback of a band that disbanded before you were born, like I'm hopping some trend that I wasn't alive to appreciate

tfw born too late to see slowdive in the early 90s
that pitchfork doc on souvlaki made me really wish I was in a different time and place

How do you not expect clipping from this genre though? The db mix on this song sounds fine. You are right about the compression, however.
Are you serious? Listen to Loveless, Souvlaki, Nowhere, etc. No clipping or overcompression/brickwalling to be found.

Angel Rodriguez
Angel Rodriguez

Shoegaze is supposed to clip though. It's meant to be distorted. Even Loveless clips. Prove me wrong. I guarantee you it does.

Levi Mitchell
Levi Mitchell

I've watched the Pitchfork doc three times now, it's just perfect. Love the visuals and all of the clips they use. I really wish I could have seen them in one of those grimey venues in the '90s, but they seem great live now too so I hope I get to see them this year.

there's nothing wrong with brickwalling limiting or compression or clipping/distortion in the mastering process.

Aaron Murphy

Nah desu it sounds overly clippy
I think its probably just a low quality audio file, slowdive have autistically mixed albums, i dont see them deviating from that now

Luis Mitchell

fuck off shit
it sounds great, go display your autism somewhere else

Isaiah Cook
Isaiah Cook

I'm mildly concerned for the album since the mix on this is ridiculously narrow, but I'm hoping that's just an oversight on their part in the single release
This shit sounds too good to suffer from bad mixing

Levi Nguyen

Joseph Morgan

I literally just bought the song off their bandcamp to see the waveform. Honestly, it's pretty disappointing to see that they mastered it like this...

I put the 1993 CD version of "When the Sun Hits" underneath for comparison.

Joseph Edwards

I'm serious. Anyone have the lyrics?

Sebastian Parker
Sebastian Parker

heavy compression usually swallows a lot of the details in the mix. there's a lot less variation in volume, so the subtle differences in volume that make most mixes sound lively tend to go to shit and (in my experience, idk if this has any scientific reason) layers that are lower in the mix get suffocated by the louder layers.
for a prime example, listen to the unmastered version of kanye's mbdtf (inb4 b8) next to the commercial release (one of the worst mastering jobs in recent history) - you'll notice a lot of intricacies that were basically drowned out in the final product.

All opposable / said she’s feeling good / said she’s feeling good

Smiling beautiful / she says I’ll make it bad / for everyone to hide
Twisting by my girl / nothing left to lose / nothing left to fight

Give it away my girl / can’t hold on / to mine
Every black and white / secrets of / seeking light
In a flash of time / said she’s feeling warm / for everyone tonight
Smiling beautiful / she says I’ll make it bad / for everyone to hide

mastering isn't a meme. if you have ever actually listened to unmastered music, when you adjust the volume the song sounds drastically different, not just louder or quieter but like a completely different recording of the song. I don't have a solid idea what the actual reason for this is but it's true, record some music yourself and you'll notice it right away

Phew. I actually really teared up listening to this and felt really warm and happy. Felt like a forgotten part of myself coming back. I really love these guys.

Joseph Myers

mbv.

and I predict probably this one.

My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive are both truly great bands that have it in them to do good comeback albums. Normally I'd keep my expectations low, but not with these guys.

Similarly, with television, expect good things with Lynch's new Twin Peaks season.

Good things are happening again. The world is alive.

Landon Morris

Shoegaze actually got more popular. There was a real backlash against it in the early 90s but it ended up sounding really good to people in the long run. Aged terrifically, which is to say that it almost didn't age, but life grew into it more.

Christopher Sullivan
Christopher Sullivan

I need to listen to it a few more times but my first impressions are it's around what I expected but not as good as I hoped for.

Sounds pretty pleasant but kind of one note. Reminds me too much of all these newer dream pop bands that have been aping their sound in the 2000s.

Easton Anderson

Don't read that wrong - I like a lot of new things, though. I just mean that as far as older artists, I still believe in MBV, Slowdive, Lynch, and Swans.

Samuel Torres
Samuel Torres

Did you believe in the pixies though? They had some great stuff in the 90s and they disappointed pretty badly with the comeback album

Mason Morris

Actually, no I didn't expect much there. But I'm not a particularly big indie guy, but I like the better shoegaze bands and some of the more neopsych bands of yore.

Jace Long
Jace Long

Oh, I see. I have felt like interesting things have been continually happening over the years, whatever naysayers might have claimed, but I did feel like there was a certain something ... more about the sense to the feeling of history itself as a whole... that felt like a depression or a lag. Like excitement had waned. Now it feels somehow like some of that breath has returned. Probably for many, subtle reasons that I can't quite articulate. I don't attribute it to old bands, don't get me wrong, but I feel this in a lot of things. Like life seems beautiful again.

John Morris

And they sounded magnificent by the way.

Nolan Anderson
Nolan Anderson

I like it a lot

Brayden Sanchez
Brayden Sanchez

I hope there's some darker tracks on this album too, like Melon Yellow. Probably nothing as depressing as Dagger though - my only worry for this album was that some of its atmosphere would be lost due to a lack of teenage angst, but I'm really happy with this song and I've listened to it about 10 times

Don't be mean he's a sweet man and doesn't deserve that

I get you, it's been a long time since I've been this excited about a band or a TV show. I'm sounding like I'm wearing nostalgia goggles but most stuff I really love seems to come from the 1990s. I do think there's still good new stuff coming out though.

Joshua Smith
Joshua Smith

Did they happen to play anything off I Saw the Sun.

My worry is that they will tour UK after the release of the new album and the show will mainly of material off that.

Anthony Sanders

Cameron Lewis

It's just something that Neil Halstead said in the Pitchfork documentary that made me think about this:
"A lot of Slowdive stuff was about atmospheres and so possibly, in a slightly teenagey sort of way it was about creating these cinematic moments"

You are right though, and I'm not really expecting them to make Souvlaki again

Joseph Rivera
Joseph Rivera

Did they happen to play anything off I Saw the Sun
that was just a bootleg and I don't recall anything off that. Although there is a lot of great stuff on there.

They did Golden Hair which was actually the peak of the show for me.

I'm so fucking disappointed that the drums are literally the most generic bandcamp shoegaze song drums that make me think of indie rock more than alt rock, and that the mixing is done like shit since I can hear the details I'd love to hear on it but they can barely be heard or noticed. Similar airplane gaining height sound that is noticeable in Wonder 2 on MBV.

I really want to like it since Slowdive is one of my favourite bands of all time but it's hard when it doesn't even try to push out from the crowd of similar songs.

Sebastian Edwards

Analogue distortion and clipping is completely different than digital clipping. Digital clipping sounds garbage while analogue clipping is actually used as an effect.

You don't want it to clip digitally at all because it sounds trash.

poor guys, they just can't win

Liam Ross

Why are people so upset at the criticism of the mastering?

I love shoegaze, but this doesn't sound good. It sounds really "fat". It's like when you mess with an equaliser and turn the treble off.

I still think it's a fantastic song, but it felt a bit wrong.

Huge slowdive fan here and I'm a little disappointed :/

I can't imagine every track on this upcoming album being this disappointing though. After listening to all of the slowdive and Mojave 3 output, I've come across songs like this every once in a while. But, in every release, there are at least some songs that seriously wow.

I think they're playing it safe with this song to generate hype.

Don't see why you're getting so much hate. Mastering like that is bad for the music. Thankfully despite the waveform looking like ass it doesn't sound too too bad, at least to my ears. Compressed, sure, but not a clipping fest like some records.

It's a very good song too. I'm hyped for this record.

Yeah that makes sense. It'd be silly to release your best song off the album as your lead single, because after that the rest would feel like a let down. It's like the last radiohead record, putting burn the witch out as a single was perfect because it was pretty good and got people excited but there was still several songs way better waiting for you on the album.

I'm guessing

only plebs at /r/indieheads care about sound quality

In which case I'm curious as to why caring about sound quality is a bad thing?

Juan Howard

Umm, maybe that's the sound they're going for and you need to CHILL OUT

Who are you to tell ARTISTS how their music should sound or that their intracacies are "drowned out"? Maybe that's exactly how the intracacies are supposed to SOUND

band regroups and makes new music that's a progression on their classic sound and just as good

How could you think this is even close to being as lush and layered as anything from Just For a Day, Souvlaki or I Saw the Sun?

Christopher Bennett

Wasn't supposed to release this information but Kevin is done making/playing/producing music.

What proof do you want?

I worked with Primal Scream (and by extension, Kevin) back in 2000 as an engineer and became friends Keith Tenniswood in the process.

When I talked to Keith at the tail end of last year I asked him about Kevin and, as most of you know, he's struggled with writer's block since after the first (well, technically second) My Bloody Valentine record Isn't Anything. Writer's block for Kevin isn't writer's block for anyone else. He's a perfectionist. It took a lot of pressure on him for m b v to even see the light of day.

He made the decision in 2014 to end his music career.

But he played at some Dinosaur Jr. concerts in 2015.
