New Music: Black Hearted Brother- (I Don't Mean) To Wonder
Wondering when the last time former Slowdive leader Neal Halstead plugged in his guitar before this year. The man has been making acoustic folk music for years now and a lot of people have given up on there ever being a reunion of the iconic shoegaze band.

He has joined a couple of buddies to form a new supergroup to make some seriously loud spacey shoegaze. The new band is called Black Hearted Brother and also features Mark Van Hoen of Seafeel and Nick Holten of Holten's Opulent Oog.
