  1. I prefer Pygmalion. I found Souvlaki sort of a disappointment.

    I’ve been meaning to get the new Calexico album and rebuy some INXS since the wife and i spent a couple hours listening to a bunch of 80’s tunes recently.

  2. I never loved Slowdive, or really paid any attention to them, but I love watching a band being allowed to tell a leisurely story about how they started, what they meant to do, and how it felt to do it.

    • In some ways this doc follows a bit of the standard “Behind the Music” structure, where you have the rise, the interpersonal conflict/interband romantic turbulence, the falloff, and then the belated appreciation or legacy and adult acceptance.

      But I still thought it was well-done, and their style of music, as dreamy and nostalgic as it is, fits that type of storytelling really well.
