Missing the boat

Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell have an uncanny talent for finding unprofitable genres to practice their trade in. So shoe-gazer dream pop with Slowdive wasn't paying the bills? Let's just do some pedal steel drenched alt-country as Mojave 3 -- just as Nirvana and grunge are taking off. If there's a fad, these folks seem to find a way to run screaming the other way. "In Love with A View" is a gorgeous song, but like the rest of Mojave 3's output, has been listened to only by the faithful. And that's just fine with me.
