New Music Monday

Another Monday, another awesome new song.

Aritst: Neil Halstead

Song: “Full Moon Rising” – from the album Palindrome Hunches

I’ve loved this dude since he first came on the scene back in 1991 with his band Slowdive – one of the best of the Shoegazer bands to sprout from that early 90’s crazy. Seemed everywhere you looked in 1991 a new “soaked in digital delay” band was staring at their feet, ripping off My Bloody Valentine and RIDE. But the dudes, and gal, in Slowdive had more going on then just effect pedals – there was actual songwriting there courtesy of Neil Halstead. Over the years  his songwriting skill is has gotten even better and it is evident here on Halsteads latest solo release. This song is beautiful and hearkens the best of Nick Drake. Listen for yourself.
