It’s been a week of firsts. Slowdive released their first new song in 22 years. News leaked that Liz Phair was working with Ryan Adams on a double album, marking her return after seven years. And several newcomers released their debut singles, some of whom are featured on the first Weekend Showcase of 2017.
