low :: black sessions

living happily together as wife & husband in duluth, minnesota,
the core of low have been creating delicate music since 1994. 

my first introduction was the rarity sleep at the bottom which came from their 7″ split collaboration shared with piano magic and transient waves.  i remember listening to it distinctly as being able to quietly relax, as the music kept me lost inside subtle electronic details, reflective harmonies and gently striking drum n’ bass.  to this day, beautifully with their new 2007 album breaker, low still provide clarity for all that makes sound meaningful.

our bodies break
and the blood just spills and spills

    when i saw low last month, breaker was a real highlight of the show. in fact, they played two versions of it. the stripped down one, in which mimi invited us all to clap along as the only drumbeat, and then a really loud, blown-out version in the encore. they were both amazing.
