Editors’ Notes

As Slowdive's Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell reconvened as Mojave 3, their sound took a turn toward the emerging alt-country scene, with a touch of western loneliness casting an aura over these delicate tracks of mellow-eyed beauty. The band's shoegaze roots can still be discerned in the laidback gait and fuzzy ambience. Drummer Ian McCutcheon plays with restraint and with brushes, while the pianos and guitars join the harmonies for tunes that merge country's slide guitars with an Anglophile's sense of melody. They may have reached the desert, but it's raining. Neither Halsted nor Goswell were ready to handle the sun, so tunes such as "Love Songs on the Radio" and "Tomorrow's Taken" reflect the storm clouds and melancholia of their drizzling melodies. Pianist Christopher Andrews keeps the cowboy hopefuls grounded in the parlor, where they imagine what it must be like outside. It creates music that owes a debt only to a few diverse influences. The Red House Painters–like "Candle Song 3" and the Leonard Cohen–inspired "You're Beautiful" prove that Mojave 3 has miles to go before it sleeps.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic first album

Ask Me Tomorrow boast well-balanced tracks between Goswell and Halstead taking turns on the vocals. This album is powerfully sad and dire; if you are into Mazzy Star or the early albums from the Cowboy Junkies then this is for you.

Lovely, relaxing sensual sounds to unwind to

I hadn't heard this one in almost a decade when I came across their itunes page today, listening to the samples made me realize they still sound fresh and current - perfect for driving late at night, or for making love to, or for using to settle a troubled mind down when you need to relax and sleep - it's good for all that and more. Lovely, dreamy songs and mellow electronics keep the vibe warm and human rather than electronically robotic, but the cool distrance of the music is also part of what makes it soothing. This is the direction that I had hoped "new age" music would go in, 10 years ago. Wekll, most of it hasn't but Mojave3 haven't hung up their saddles yet and thats a very good thing, because they still sound relevant. If you missed them before or haven't heard of them till now, treat yourself to this album or at least to some of the choice cuts within - there isn't a bad song in the batch, just good ones and then great ones..Buy it!~2 THUMBS UP!! (AND ALL THAT!)

Biography

Formed: England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Between the recording and release of Slowdive's ambient Pygmalion, Neil Halstead began writing more song-based tunes to occupy down time. Weeks after being dropped by Creation, Halstead and the remaining members of Slowdive (Rachel Goswell and Ian McCutcheon) recorded six demos within three days, much of it live without overdubs. Their manager brought the tape to 4AD head Ivo Watts-Russell, who immediately gave the trio money to record more material. Feeling that the direction was too removed to...
