I’m a relative newcomer to this band, although they’ve been around for quite some time, both under this name and earlier as Slowdive. I’ve been aware of them and heard a song here and there over the years, but never gave them a very close listen. My coeditor gave me their new CD, Puzzles Like You, the other day, and we caught their show at the Bowery Ballroom last night.  Last night’s show was especially good; it was the right sized crowd (full, but not packed), the sound was great, the band was tight, etc. I never think to bring my real camera to these things, but sometimes I kind of like the graininess of my cellphone camera.
