Recently, Neil Halstead hinted that a Slowdive reunion is no longer out of the question. Hardly a firm commitment, but encouraging nonetheless. Meanwhile, he’s been touring with his post-Slowdive project Mojave 3 and just released his third solo album, Palindrome Hunches.

Halstead is touring the US at the moment and has released an EP to coincide with the tour. It features two album tracks, plus acoustic versions of Mojave 3’s “Yerfeet” and Slowdive’s “Alison”. The latter is a killer. Listen and register for a free download:
