POST/FOLK-ROCK. In 2018, LOW will turn 25. Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker have pioneered a subgenre. Instead, in faithfully defiant fashion, LOW release its most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album ever: "double negative", an unflinching eleven-song quest through snarling static and shattering beats that somehow culminates in the brightest pop song of LOW's career. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST/FOLK-ROCK. LOW present "hey what". These 10 pieces-each built around their own instantaneous, undeniable hook-are turbocharged by the vivid textures that surround them. The ineffable, familiar harmonies of LOW break through the chaos like a life raft. Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse - building, breaking, colossal then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered. "hey what" is LOW's 13th full-length release in 27 years. Colored (clear) and limited "loser edition" includes a digital download card.

POST/FOLK-ROCK. "ones and sixes" takes everything LOW excels at and dips it in a heavy gold plating of industrial-leaning electronics. This somehow catapults to new and extreme heights the innate beauty their music has always had. It's a series of contrasts: stunning and menacing, gorgeous and frightening, giving and desperate, and ultimately, unbearably heavy and unbearably light. "ones and sixes" is the new (and, so far, the best) album from the Duluth-based trio. Double vinyl includes a digital download card.
