Low Vinyl, CD & tapes by Low at Norman Records

Decades into their pursuit of dramatic hush, Low are still pushing for new ideas. The core duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker remains one of music’s best marriages, the guitarist and drummer sharing vocal duties and coming out the other end with...read more »

Low
The Exit Papers

First-time vinyl and electronic release for Low's 'imaginary film soundtrack' EP (originally released in 2000, a year before the seminal album 'Things we Lost in the Fire'). Largely instrumental, 'The Exit Papers' was definitely one of Low's more experimental records. The band sent copies of this out to movie executives in the hope of securing soundtrack-writing work. Purchase also includes download code.

Low
Ones and Sixes

A bloke called Alan who’s a member of Low says of One and Sixes; “I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself”. He goes on to talk about “the moment” and all that. All I know is that they continue with their slow sleuthing indie rock, which also has hints of traditional folk. They're singing well known tunes and just giving you a generally good time. Don't let up on the harmonies, y'all. Available on 2LP or CD.  

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low record that fights against itself....shades of 'Drums & Guns' perhaps? Once again Low move with the times. Truly always different, always the same. 

Black-eyed Snakes
Seven Horses

Seven (7) horses? That is loads. Tread very carefully. Black Eyed Snakes is of course the scorch blues project of Low's Alan Sparhawk. Almost as different from his other band as it's possible to get the Black Eyed Snakes are known for incendiary live shows  showcasing their love of punk and electrifying blues. 

Low / S. Carey
Not a Word / I Won't Let You

Slowcore legends (is that a phrase I'm allowed to type?) and Bon Iver wonderdrummer team up for a collaborative RSD 10". Here, they tie up one anothers' loose ends: seven minute Low-burner "Not A Word" is touched up with help from S. Carey, and vice versa for "I Won't Let You". This is a delicate, moving, indie rawk kinda thing; both bands enjoy making pretty music, all the time, so there you go.

Low
Things We Lost In The Fire

On Low albums, the heart flutters and then stops altogether, the hushed harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker slowing into nothingness -- whether over delicate strums or ascendent and doomy rock fanfare. Things We Lost In the Fire is arguably the band's opus, offering each iteration of their sound at its most emotional devastating.

Low
C'mon

Low just get more popular and more influential as the years roll past don't they? C'mon was their 2011 era album that was a lot more conventional that their previous off kilter effort Drums and Guns and marks a return to their gloriously rich slow moving harmonic sound. Opener Try to Sleep was yet another example of them making great things out of seemingly nothing. Oft copied, never bettered, always super soothing.

Low
Songs For A Dead Pilot

A sleeve that is both weirdly beautiful and horrid pretty much sums up this mini album by Duluth slowcore legends Low. It's one of their more minimal work showcasing the harmonic beauty in their sound but also being strangely disconcerting with it's sometimes discordant approach. Mini albums tend to get forgotten in the tangle of full lengthers a band like Low produce but this one shouldn't be underestimated.

Low
Christmas

Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "Long Way Around the Sea" with spooky versions of traditional song. It's the perfect soundtrack to my Christmas tradition of driving around the less salubrious neighbourhoods, checking out the houses all ridiculously lit up.
