New Europe, Canada and US dates until the end of the year are on their site too: https://www.chairkickers.com/shows


I don't think I'll like this album though, too much fiddling. Same as Drums & Guns. Loved those songs live, but hardly ever listen to the album versions.


(I posted this first in the old thread then moved over to the new thread :) )

It seems this will be a controversial album, as "Drums And Guns" was on its day, adding bleeps, distortion and noisy elements to a sound that it's perhaps much more loved at their most organic.

According to LOW (I gather my perspective from the Bandcamp text that accompanies the pre-order info), the sound on this album is intended to reflect the current state of The United States of America, and the songs should function as well as statements and salves regarding the current times. "Drums And Guns" came from a similar sensibility, actually.

Just heard. Awesome. Psyched.

I preordered the Double Negative cassette.

Wish they were offering, The Exit Papers, on cassette, too!

And also did the same with the two Mogwai sets:

It was an impossible choice. However, LOW has won this poll, and video of this La Blogothèque session is now on Youtube:

Alan Sparhawk collaborates on three tracks: "I See It Too", "Someday We'll Linger in the Sun", and "Moment of Bliss", which must have been performed a few times already in a Murder of Crows setting.

Physical copies and other goodies can be pre-ordered via a Go Fund Me campaign:

Someone tweeted the other day — forget who — that is this is the band’s “most experimental” album.

...

I’m fucking so goddamn excited I just want to expletive all over the place
