“Golden Hair” by Slowdive

7 06 2013

Here’s another post in my shoegaze series – Slowdive covering Syd Barrett’s “Golden Hair”:

Slowdive are more atmospheric than Chapterhouse, and use keyboards more than guitars. Again, the effect is of a wall of sound. I love this band to pieces. (Though, living near Greektown in Toronto, I find it strange that they called one of their albums “Souvlaki”. But that just might be because I eat a lot of souvlaki.)
