Remember the 1990s band Slowdive? What about Mojave 3? If yes, put on your going out shoes because Neil Halstead, the mastermind behind these two groups is putting out solo music and he's coming to town. If no, you’re not entirely alone. Hovering just below the pop culture radar, Halstead's bands reside in that sweet spot of great critical acclaim and a long, word-of-mouth lifetime that sees them selling albums long after they've disbanded. Halstead's solo work doesn't stray too far from what he's done in the past: thoughtful songs sung gently with great feeling and honesty, but he's very good at what he does and the last 20-plus years have proved only to sharpen his insights and song-crafting skills.
