The latest installment of Sonic Cathedral’s Singles Club is Slowdive’s absolutely epic and mind-blowing cover of Syd Barrett’s “Golden Hair.” This has been a staple of their live performances since reforming several years ago, and is basically an opportunity for Slowdive to let loose and unleash the full force of their shoegaze sound — which they do, and then some. This particular performance was originally recorded back in 2014 but was remixed and remastered earlier this year by Neil Halstead and Heba Kadry, and will be released on gold vinyl (of course).
