For a man going on his second decade of bringing the musical love, UK stylee, Neil
Halstead is still looking pretty good and recording just as well. A member of shoegaze
essentials Slowdive, as well as California sun-drenched country-tinged pop outfit
Mojave 3, Halstead released his debut solo effort just last week for 4AD,
home of Mojave 3. The album, entitled Sleeping on Roads is quite tasty, in a
stripped-down. Mojave minus Rachel Goswell kinda way. So good in fact,
that it has spawned a mini-North American tour, hitting five cities in a week and a half.
Catch it if you're close.
