Slowdive – Outside Your Room

Outside Your Room is the fourth EP by Slowdive, release two week prior to their second album. Its title is taken from the lyrics of the lead song Alison.  Alison is probably one the best known Slowdive songs ever, yet it is not the best song on here.  It seems to hark back to Just For a Day, and they have come so far since then.

So Tired has a love/hate relationship with most Slowdive fans.  I am inclined to think that this would have been a decent closing track to Souvlaki Space Station. With it’s droning reverbed guitar, if there was such a genre it could be called gothgaze.

Souvlaki Space Station is as blissed out dreamy wash.  Then Moussaka Chaos attacks the listener with a more trippy, spaced out dubby version of Souvlaki Space Station.
