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.

After three wonderful records, Low were dropped by their label Vernon Yard. In the months following, the band set up a studio in their home and began recording some songs on their own. The result is Songs For A Dead Pilot released on Chicago's Kranky label. "Songs..." combines Low's familiar minimalist songwriting with some new elements provided by the home-recording experience. There's lots of tape-hiss and reverb; even the clothes-drier makes an appearance on one song (though you wouldn't know it).
