EDITORS’ NOTES

A signature song for the dreamiest of the UK’s original shoegaze acts, “Catch the Breeze” boasts an especially apt title. Like many tracks on Slowdive’s debut, this swirl of reverb-drenched guitars and harmony vocals feels so vaporous, it’s ready to vanish into the ether. Yet Just for a Day’s ecstatic nature belies darker undercurrents that become more pronounced whenever the rapturous swells of sound subside, and Rachel Goswell’s angelic cooing takes on a more despairing quality on the haunting “Primal.”
