Low - Rolling Thread

low

#641

Best early period : “I could live in Hope”
Best mid period: “Things we Lost in the Fire”
Best late period: “Double Negative”

Beyond that… don’t make me choose!


#642

Totally depends what you want out of low really. Such a versatile band.


#643

Anyone want a ticket for Manchester?
16th October
I’ll knock a fiver off the face value so its…£25 (i think!)

Gutted can’t go as they are always phenomenal but should make Brum next year. Really looking forward to hearing some new stuff live.


#644

The only Low I’ve ever really listened to was the Christmas EP (Just Like Christmas is amazing), but was never grabbed by the other songs (from what little I heard of them). But after crawling through eMusic trying to find something to download I came across The Great Destroyer and really quite enjoyed that, so I think I’ll give the other two or three albums of theirs a download also. I’m now having a listen to the new album (just on track three at the moment) and am so far quite liking it and considering getting a ticket for the Barbican show next year. Thus ends my Low (re)discovery story.


#645

Do you know how to waltz > Lazy > Always trying to work it out. Ridiculous tbh.

#646

anyone taken this?


#647

not yet (i’ll have to 100% confirm tonight with the wife but sure its still available)…


#648

This album is incredible. If pushed though, I’d say I find Rome more jarring than Tempest.


#649

I think this has more of all the things I didn’t like about 22 A Million with almost none of the stuff that did capture me from that album …


#650

ignore - meant to message


#651

You know what, Tempest is actually kinda catchy isn’t it?


#652

I remember people saying that it was considered a divisive track but I thought it was fire emoji. Maybe cause I’m not so familiar with Low.

This album encouraged me to book a ticket to see 'em in January. Also, Alan’s interview with Ben from Death Cab on the Talkhouse podcast is worth checking out.


#653

I will listen to that, thanks for the heads up.

I guess Tempest is maybe not so standard and is also one of the ones where the teeatment of the core song is more extreme, but I personally love it.

Can’t wait to see them at the Babrican, even if I waited too long to get my ticket and have a rubbish view.


#654

Wouldn’t say catchy but it definitely doesn’t disrupt the flow for me like other folk have said


#655

Tried singing along to it yet? “IKKYLAIR… IKKYLAIR… EEELAAYYY”

(just me, then)


#656

think I’m going to see Low at some point as a mate got tickets.

Will probably be good


#657

I saw Low in Paris on Saturday and can confirm that it was, indeed, good.


#658

Bristol is currently very good


#659

Manchester roll-call tonight:

me
yer boy @incandenza


#660

What’s yer new stuff sound like live? Slightly curious about how it translates considering it’s such a ‘studio’ sounding record.
