From now on we should call the album HEY WHAT WHAT WHAT IN THE BUTT, or HWWWITB for the impatient ones amongst ya.


What's the other band? I don't think you're referring to Gillian Welch's "Six White Horses", and I hope you're not mistaking the title of a Stones classic...

I think i'm gonna print that image and use it as cover of a homemade cd-r of a remarkable show of the HEY WHAT IN THE BUTT tour. That's a plan for the future when the pandemic finally allows some normalcy.

If I were on Twitter, I would send the video for "What What In The Butt" to LOW as a kind of love letter. The Butters impression is lovely and a winner, but Samwell's version is pretty cool and legendary, too.
https://youtu.be/G4PvTrTp7Tc

The other "White Horses" I referred to, is a song by MoE (Should have said "songs about horses", I suppose). Was often the climax of their shows around the time of "Examination Of The Eye Of A Horse". Guro would leave the stage and go into the crowd. I've slam-danced with her in those circumstances more than once. When I went to see LOW in Tijuana, I dared to make the trip (and spend the money), because it also allowed me to catch another show by the awesome norwegians. Seeing two of my favorite bands in two days was incredible (I wanted to give LOW some MoE records as a gift but couldn't do it), and Tijuana is fucking great as it was declared by Krusty on The Simpsons. Good times.

MoE's video for "Wild Horses" made by Greg Pope: https://youtu.be/uBU2kay5rHU

So good to see this record being so praised despite being the most abstract of the recent bunch (which I would think wouldn't appeal to many of the critics). LOW sound strong and undefatigable, even as demons descend; according to this review on UPROXX-The Culture Of Now:

Compare and contrast Double Negative (which I adore) and HEY WHAT.

Thanks.

(I'll ask twice.)

I haven’t listened to all of it yet, but like what I hear so far, especially Times Like These—what an amazing tune.
