From the new Low album “Ones and Sixes” due September 2015, Low have been making warm, harmonic music since the early ’90s. Their songs are often inspired by their personal lives, as the band told us in a profile anticipating their upcoming album Ones And Sixes. We’ve already shared “What Part Of Me” and “No Comprende,” the first two singles taken from the album. And now they’ve shared a further track “Lies,” which finds Alan Sparkhawk and Mimi Parker composing sonically beautiful symmetry. The dim tone is enveloped in a cloak of hazy vibration, topped off with Sparkhawk and Parker’s soothing vocals. It’s the kind of song that you can play over and over when you just need to be by yourself and recharge. Listen and absorb the melancholy.

 

LOW are just one of my favourite ever bands, this is a wonderful video for the song “Clarence White” the amazing Fuzzed out guitars and the sparse studio setting of all the taxidermy animals, City of Music Session’s use just incredible imagery and photography. Low are a American rock band from Duluth Minnesota formed as long ago as 1993 the nucleaus of Alan Sparkhawk and Mimi Parker. This track is taken from “The Invisible Way” album

Clarence White was an American bluegrass and country guitarist and singer.He is best known as a member of the bluegrass ensemble the Kentucky Colonels and the rock band The Byrds, as well as for being a pioneer of the musical genre of country rock during the late 1960s.White also worked extensively as a session musician, appearing on recordings by The Everly Brothers, Joe Cocker,Ricky Nelson, Pat Boone, The Monkees, Randy Newman,Gene Clark,Linda Ronstadt, Arlo Guthrie,and Jackson Browne amongst others.
