With the promise of new music imminent, interest in shoegaze heroes Slowdive has increased exponentially in recent months. They began performing live again a few years ago, and this past January, they shared their first new song in 22 years. Now, Brazil-based The Blog That Celebrates Itself is taking time out of its busy schedule of self-love to celebrate Slowdive’s music with a new covers compilation. They’re calling it Just For A Life.
From Whimsical’s take on the title track of Slowdive’s self-titled EP to Mevius’ reinterpretation of new “Star Roving”, it’s a diverse 21 track set. Philly’s own Bryant Eugene Vazquez even makes an appearance with his cover of Just For a Day cut “Ballad of Sister Sue.” Stream the set below.
