World Cafe Playlist for 09/06/2023

Slowdive joins host David Dye

Slowdive became icons of shoegaze in the early 90s. They disbanded in 1995, but to the delight of fans, in 2017 they put out their first album in 22 years, and this past Friday, they released its eagerly anticipated follow-up. On the World Cafe, revisit that moment when they finally came back together as the band talks about what it was like to reunite after so much time had gone by.

This is an encore
