hurray, new thread!

below's the newsletter, or whatever was posted on the chairkickers mailing list. Probably will see them twice on the Europe tour, Amsterdam, Cologne and/or Brussels. If work permits it's been too busy the last couple of months. Paradiso will be a bit too big for them though I'm afraid. Let's hope it fills up better than for SMZ last year.... It's the best venue of the Netherlands, but not when it's just half full.

Very curious about the new album for two reasons. First reason is the curiously good feeling: The new songs they played live so far were very strong, usually I have to listen to new tunes a couple of times before they grab me, not this time. Second reason is the oh dead curious feeling: I read/heard somewhere Alan say that they've been more playyful with the production on this album. So god knows where that leads to. Never liked Drums&Guns so much, even though I loved those songs in their live performances

Low’s Ones and Sixes will be available on CD / LP / DL September 11th from Sub Pop. You can now listen to the lead single, “No Comprende” on Sub Pop’s YouTube, Soundcloud and streaming services like Spotify, Rdio and TuneIn.


The albumwas co-produced by Low and engineer BJ Burton at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Eau Claire, WI, Ones and Sixes is the new (and, so far, the best) album from the Duluth-based trio of Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker and Steve Garrington.

Pre-orders of Ones and Sixes are available through Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Fans who purchase the album from megamart.subpop.com will receive the Loser Edition (while supplies last).

More about Low’s Ones and Sixes:
“In our 20+ years of writing songs, I’ve learned that no matter how escapist, divergent, or even transcendent the creative process feels, the result is more beholden to what is going on at the moment. It’s hard to admit that one is so influenced by what is in front of us. Doesn’t it come from something magical and far away? No, it comes from here. It comes from now. I’m not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself.”
— Alan Sparhawk, Low


——————
I have Napster to thank for my love of Low. Kind of. It was 1998 and a friend showed it to me and installed it on my father’s desktop computer. Having grown up with my parents’ well-curated record collection and their conspicuous, infectious love of music, plus then-current radio and various stages of age-appropriate pop culture fandom (see NKOTB, Madonna and TLC), it wasn’t as though I knew nothing. This mysterious, immediate, and seemingly limitless catalogue of unknown sounds, though—it was manna from heaven.
Cue my high school obsession with Brian Eno and the original Nuggets boxset.
Fast forward to 2002; now studying literature in Germany, a neighbor clues me in to some random music library accessible on our shared server.
Immediately cue Low and their album Things We Lost in the Fire playing on repeat for hours.
I spent much of that year abroad collecting new experiences and attempting to process a lot of the classic existential crises so typical of your early 20s. Low was one of the few bands who helped me along with this. Their often slow-growing, minimal and yet expansive songs just beg for introspection. Demand it, even. They cultivate a sense of grandeur and inquiry with their predominantly melancholic tone, which if you’re anything like me, sets you right down in front of the mirror for some much-neglected self-assessment.
Is Low somehow The Velvet Undergound’s song “I’ll Be Your Mirror” transubstantiated into band form?
As Alan Sparhawk said above, the meanings of the songs are transitory. Even if there was a specific impetus, nothing needs explaining beyond what the song itself reveals. It’s an exercise on Low’s end and when the music is released, it becomes one for us.
So how do I talk about an album without entering specific lyrical territory? What’s left are the feelings evoked; the open-ended melodic stories —which is precisely what Low’s music has always been about: the experience. Touché, Alan.
Ones and Sixes opens with “Gentle,” its list of words building in tandem with the instrumentation. There’s a new element introduced immediately: a hypnotic digital static that grounds the whole thing, reigning in the dynamic swells. Alan and Mimi Parker’s voices come in quickly with that unnerving, fragile and beautiful harmony they’ve perfected, and it all hits me at once. It’s a loaded conversation between ex-lovers. There’s a serious pulsing, blown-out bass and it’s jarring and sad. The intimacy is haunting. It has the same effect as Kate Bush’s “Watching You Without Me” and forces a roll call of all the doomed communication in my life. The song ends as obscured as it begins, unravelling piece by piece. The distorted bass drops out from under you, leaving an almost-punishing monotone, and then only a few guitar chords.
The second song “No Comprende” continues that heaviness in a loaded low end. I get Bad Seeds vibes. Melodically, it’s a call and response between Alan and Mimi, with her ethereal voice floating on top, and I think of gravity at work on a tiny insect on water. There’s more rolling, staticky bass, huge kick drum rumbles, and some slow, almost-Morricone leads over a chugging guitar. The reinvention of Low’s arrangement is staggering. This is headphone music; this is surround sound music.
“Spanish Translation” starts out with a sort of restrained, minimal progression (reminiscent of Galaxie 500) that quickly explodes and just as quickly retreats. The line “everything once within reason” grabs my attention as the echoes swell into white noise and then again cut out abruptly. It forces a slow head-bang and reminds me of my first favorite song of theirs, “Dinosaur Act,” in its simultaneous intensity and restraint. There’s a lot of electronic tones left to decay over the analog sound of simple piano chords. “Everything, always confusion,” indeed.
“No End” starts off with a bang of Baroque pop, its descending melody calling up the Beach Boys, but again, the melody hovers over multiple sources of distortion that continue to root Low in a way I’ve not heard before. The arrangement is uncomplicated, with a blown out driving bass groove, effective stops and starts, and Velvets-esque guitar strumming.
“Into You” is a Mimi solo song, and her voice enters over a simple, overdriven beat, like contemporary R&B with its subdued (though crackling) bassline, and what sounds like a Wurlitzer manipulated through a very digitized-sounding Leslie effect. It’s self-referencing as she sings about what veins carry and what it is that “flows right into you” and the varying speeds of tremolo pulse much the same.
“What Part of Me” reminds me of Lesser Matters Radio Department with the minimal but driving distorted baseline (think a lighter “Why Wont’ You Talk About it?”). It’s groovy and it’s poppy, with a preset drum machine beat, the kind I used to play along to on my uncle’s organ. It’s one of the two upbeat songs on the record, in stark contrast to its central question, “What part of me don’t you own?”
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. From one to six and back again.

Great news!

I know one of the opening acts. Two Gallants... used to know them rather well actually. They played a few shows with an old band of mine back when their first album came out.

Never got into them on record, but in the old days they were a mighty live band.

Should be a good fit for Low in that respect.

Ah, this is exciting!

I think Two Gallants is not really the support, it will be a double bill, both doing full sets apparently. And they'll be doing more of those on this tour. In Brussels it will be with Chelsea Wolfe. I don't know either of those bands, so not sure which of those is supposed to be more well known these days compared to Low. But I'll do my homework and spend some quality time listening to them :-)

By the by, as hipster_bebop_junkie and a few more on this board know, "no comprende" means:


(he/she/it)
"doesn't understand"

OR

(you [in the formal "usted", singular]) "don't understand"


So when you hear gringos saying "no comprende" as "I don't understand", they're mauling the Spanish language and I want to punch them in the face. Just sayin'.

Wait, I thought to understand, in reference to another person's words or actions was entender

I would say "no le entiendo" if I was addressing someone.

It's been a while since I've spoken any of the rudimentary Spanish that I learned in high school and in preparation for a stay in Madrid several years ago.

Maybe I need to attend a night class or something.

Considering the fact that Two Gallants crashed on our couches when they played with us, and only played last because we were trying to be respectful of the distance they drove to be at our show, I'm fucking astonished that there's even a question about who's more popular.

I was already into Low at the time, and had been since at least 98/99. They were covered by Robert freaking Plant, so I guess I assume they're at least somewhat well known.

Chelsea Wolfe has reached a broad audience of late, and might be more recognizable than Low, but for my money Low better be headlining.

Though like I said, Two Gallants circa 2003/2004 were (in their live show anyway) similar to Lonesome Crowded West era Modest Mouse. Angular guitars and spastic drums mingling with downtempo country/folk melodies and sort of a traditional vibe. They were impressive, though I haven't followed them on record.

I need to clarify what I said on my, um, language meanie post: I haven't heard the Low song (don't think I will until the album is out, that's pretty much my general policy), I don't know how the phrase is used on it, and I don't want to punch anyone from Low in the face anyway. Wouldn't punch Alan - I love him. Well, maybe I would to steal Mimi away from him, but I don't think that'd fly. By the way, I relatively kinda sorta half-forgot Low already has a song called "Don't Understand" (pummelling amazing track from Secret Name, of course)...

This is a great policy and one I've tried to live by when it comes to groups I know. When it comes to groups / music I'm not all that familiar with, I've appreciated the "sneak peaks" provided by many here over the years.

I was hesitant to address your "No Comprende" post as I didn't want this thread to turn into the "back-and-forth" rant where SYG members come with knives out (like in a few other SYG threads).

My best friend is married to a wonderful women who speaks spanish, split time between Mexico/Cuba until 1st Grade when her family legally moved to Texas. Over the years we've had several discussions on the topic and I'm not sure if I'll fully grasp the frustration. This has also been a discussion with people I work with and I shared this Hispanic vs. Latino vs. Spanish video......curious to your thoughts.

Uhhh... These distinctions are fairly obvious, just like Jewish vs Hebrew vs Israeli. You guys need charts and shit to understand the differences? Dude...

No sir, don't believe I do. The differences are are more than fairly obvious, they're totally freaking obvious. But this doesn't seem to be the case with many of the people I come I come into contact with. I had a HELL of a time explaining Sephardi VS. Ashkenazi just recently. I don't think I was even successful in the end... "A Portuguese Jew? Come on man, you are fucking with me!"

Still don't speak Spanish very well though.

Anyone else think these 2 songs sound way too overproduced?

The drum machines especially? Like come on, Mimi don't need any of that.

OK, I may have come across as a ding-dong here - if that was the case I apoogize, Mr. Bytor-to-the-Peltor. I don't consider myself a language purist, but the willy-nilly use of certain words can really piss the crap (heh) out of me. Some are lost battles, though: what everybody calls "the Spanish language" is more precisely Castilian; people in Spain also speak Catalan, Galician, Basque (which is one weird-ass tongue), etc., but no school or media in the States is gonna start calling it Castilian anytime soon.

Was I owed an apology? I truly don't know?? No hard feelings or grudge on my end......like someone said, "ignorance is bliss." As I stated above, I don't fully grasp your frustration and for that, I apologize!

When you consider that the average person walking down the street couldn't tell you the name of our Vice President, nor could they list the seven continents of the world......I highly doubt they could locate Brazil using maps and charts, much less understand the origin of language or when it's being misused.
