Duluth is hit or miss... on the miss days most of us who live here are grumpy because it's cold, but on the hit days its one of the most fantastic places you could be!

Low Announce New Album The Invisible Way, Produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy | News | Pitchfork

x 17

Shocked they're releasing another one so soon. FYI, there's also a link to a fantastic new free live EP in the article above. First track (one of my all time favorite Low songs, Words) even features Ben Gibbard playing bass

What in fuck, this thing leaked three months early. I can't even find a pre-order page for it on Subpop.

But 'eh, I reviewed it after one listen cause that's how I DO.

It's not my favorite thing they've done, to be honest.

I listened to it a few times and thought it was horrible. Easily the most boring album I've heard all year. Sorry mofo.

I thought it was pleasant but nowhere near their best. Some really good tracks near the beginning.

Not sure why you're apologizing to me, it's like the second time I've even mentioned the album on this forum.

It was logical to me at the time of writing.

Probably because I think you're the biggest fan of this band on this forum. Not sure if that's accurate BTW.

I think he is. Sure seems like the amount of people here who like the band is pretty Low

I will happily wear that title. FYI, Low is sort of the main / original "slowcore" band, so "boring" is sorta what they've always been going for.

According to Alan (member of Low), he was extremely into punk and the idea of doing things that go against what's popular, and even can be uncomfortable to listen to. At the time, grunge was huge, so his idea of doing the opposite was having really minimalistic, slow, quiet songs. Their last few have actually been quite accessible compared to a lot of their earlier albums.

C'mon was awesome. Again, I like this new one but there don't seem to be very many standout tracks to look forward to when I pick it back up.

I agree, which is why I haven't had much to say about it. It's nice every time I listen to it, but I forget what any of the songs sounded like once it's done.

This is pretty awesome. Wish the song sounded like this on the album.
