A third tune revealed. Again, I don't want to listen to anything from Ones And Sixes until I have the physical album in my hands. But you cats may.

Please forgive my ignorance (and the fact that this concerns a different Low album): what's the story behind the lines "Wasting all our days/With Gillian and Dave" on "Candy Girl"? As a Gillian Welch & David Rawlings fan, I gotta know...

_tunic_ 08.27.2015 02:34 AM

you should have asked that on the reddit session last week (which I missed unfortunately...)
I could ask it on the Low mailing list if you want

hipster_bebop_junkie 08.27.2015 09:04 PM

I missed out on the Reddit session as well. I'm just getting around to checking out how it went:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Music/comme...om_low_ask_us/

I concur that would have been a great question to ask them. There are references to Marvin Gaye, and John Prine on "Trust" as well (a very enigmatic record, for sure).

In other (sort of) related news, someone crashed his truck against Sacred Heart Music Center:

Found out on that Reddit thing that "Walk Into The Sea" was a song for/about Elliott Smith. :)

we got an answer:

He mentions Gillian Welch earlier in the interview but specifies that the lyric reference is to her in the question about John Prine.





that's a damn shame about the Sacred Heart, especially those lead glass windows, that's irreplaceable

Gillian is "Candy Girl"? Whaddayaknow. Incidentally, she's also the "creeped out American girl" in Robyn Hitchcock's Spooked.

"Tremendous", eh? Sounds pretty sweet.. I'll receive my copy in October, though. :(:mad:

It's a good idea to order from Bandcamp, to at least get lossless audio files while you wait for the actual record :):

Unrelated note: Nels Cline and Jeff Tweedy did a Reddit session the other day. It's archived, and it might interest you:

Dude, I was JUST there! Yeah, Loser LP + FLACs looks extremely tempting. The only problem is I just shelled out some coins to order (well, I guess technically it's a pre-order as I'm still half an hour away from the official release date) Mars' Archives Volume One: China To Mars from Feeding Tube Records. Only 800 copies, so I figured I better move now... On the other hand, ARE THERE really 800 people in the world who DIG Mars?

Dammit, I gotta keep up with the Internet. They have it for computers now. The Low and Sleater-Kinney seshs don't seem to be there anymore, do they?

I know what you mean. I've recently ordered a copy of Bill Nace's new book, "Pleasure Scenes", from Feeding Tube Records. They're sold out now.


Here's the LOW reddit:

I did a search for the Sleater-Kinney as well, and it seems to be this one:
