Critics may contend that Low frontman Alan Sparhawk was a mid-90’s iconoclast, in a way, having eschewed the predominant contemporary genres of Duluth, Minnesota in favor of the music that Low became known for: a subdued and often dark brand of moody rock and roll. On the other hand, the 90’s outside of Duluth were full of that too, from Tanya Donelly’s somber psychedelic strokes on Belly’s excellent debut record Star to the era’s lo-fi poster kids My Bloody Valentine.

But, forget the 90’s for a minute, because the era isn’t necessarily always relevant in ...

Good Cover Version: Southerly Does Low

Source: Fuzzy Logic

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

O, how I do love a good tearjerker of a song. Low’s “When I Go Deaf” is certainly a heck of a moper, and so too is Southerly‘s gloriously glum cover. The first in a covers series done by the Portland band, “When I Go Deaf” is over seven ...

JP’s CMJ 2014 Day 5: Slowdive, Low, Moon Duo, White Fence, A Place to Bury Strangers

Source: Deli Magazine NY

I promised myself this would be the day I planned everything—the day I wouldn’t have to rush, I’d be where I had to be, when I had to be there, arriving in a calm, collected manner, the whole day. I kept my promise inasmuch as my day starting late, cutting some of the showcases I thought about running to, and meeting my aunt and uncle for a beer at Smorgasborg. I’ve learned that, for the most part, at CMJ, if you miss a band playing an afternoon set, chances are you’ll be able to see them at an evening set. ...

Towards the end of the ’80s and early ’90s, shoegaze had fallen out of favor with the heavyweights of music criticism. By the time grunge rolled around, it had just about gone the way of the dodo. But, there was staying power. Not a well populated genre by any means, there are only a few heroes within, and though they never had the mainstream visibility they once did, their followers are fierce and loyal.

Any doubt about that should be put to rest with the reunion tour of one of the heavyweights, Slowdive. ...

Premiere: Lewis – Low

Source: All Things Go

lewis low premiere

Though it may feel like there’s a new female soul singer to know everyday, Lewis is one you need to remember for years to come. While Lewis’ (née Katherine Smith) last track “Hunter” leaned a little rock-ways, her newest one “Low” — premiering here on ATG today — is pure soul-pop. With nothing but her sultry voice and some backing piano and percussion, Smith dishes out the kind of talent that will undoubtedly separate her from the rest of the pack. Give “Low” a first listen below.
