Slowdive – 5 – Limited Edition, Colored Vinyl, EP, Numbered, Music On Vinyl, 2021

Limited 180gm pink and purple marbled vinyl LP pressing. Jacket with special deluxe alubrush finish includes insert with Slowdive catalog. Slowdive’s 5 EP was released in 1993 and contains 4 songs, 3 of which are instrumental. Neil Halstead had a blast experimenting with electronic beats. The instrumental tracks on this EP are all accompanied by a solid beat. Slowdive once again succeed beautifully in producing tones that leave you numb as to how you should feel. There is an unmistakably euphoric edge to it, something heavenly, something convincing, something that takes you to places where everything is more beautiful, more colourful. 5 EP captures a brief moment of Slowdive’s journey – not quite like anything they did before it and not quite like anything after it, though it does have elements of both ‘Souvlaki’ and ‘Pygmalion’ in there. ‘In Mind’, ‘Good Day Sunshine’, ‘Missing You’ & ‘Country Rain’ are trippy, dreamy, spaced, melancholic and cinematic… Overall an essential part of the history of one of the most influential acts of the late 20th century. This rare and sought-after EP is now finally available as a limited edition on pink & purple marbled vinyl. The jacket has a special deluxe ‘alubrush’ finish. The package includes an insert with the Slowdive catalogue
