slowdive – just for a day (full album)

First released in 1991 on Creation Records, this album has been a fount I have returned to so many, many times since I bought it at about 14 from Jan Welter’s second hand cd stall at the flea market in Pietermaritzburg’s Alexandra Park. I picked it based only on the luminous cover photo of a girl, spinning… Well, that and the fact that I trusted Jan’s taste implicitly. Just for a Day is a cool, sweet glass of water to me on a stuffy, fevered day (like today); a comfy, old sweater to nestle in on a dark, sad day… the breeze blowing through my heart when it feels most empty. It lifts my spirits above suffering, always. Here it is in its entirety.
