Jeff Tweedy chaperones Low's slowcore party on new album
Low will release their tenth studio album, The Invisible Way, on March 19th via Sub Pop. This time out, the Minnesota minimalist legends enlisted Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy as producer, since artists who hate their assigned genre names tend to stick together.
The band reportedly made the decision to record the album with Tweedy at Wilco's Chicago studio after hearing his work on Mavis Staples' recent comeback album, You Are Not Alone. Because when we think vintage 1960's gospel soul, obviously we think of Low, right?
In anticipation of the new album -- and the band's 20th anniversary -- Low are currently offering a free download of the live EP Plays Nice Places, recorded during their recent live dates with Death Cab for Cutie. They will also be bringing their special brand of quiet gloom overseas for a spring tour, to remind the world that not all Mormons are hopelessly out of touch.
