Low – Ones And Sixes (Released 11th September)

£22.99 – x 2 LP & DL Code
Sub Pop will release Low’s Ones and Sixes, the group’s latest studio effort, on CD / LP / DL  worldwide Friday, September 11th. The album, featuring the standouts “No Comprende” [listen here],  “What Part of Me,” “Gentle,” and “No End,” was co-produced by the band and engineer BJ Burton at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
Low’s Alan Sparhawk had this offer about the new album: “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.“I will, however, tell you about how we made it. BJ contacted us a few years ago and invited us out to the studio where he works with Justin, Lizzo, and other artists. The studio is close to our home in Duluth, so it seemed tempting. Months later, I worked with BJ, producing the recent record by Trampled by Turtles. We got along and seemed to have similar curiosity about the possibilities for Low, so time was booked and songs finished. We tracked under the soft glow of laser discs playing lost classics like Point Breakand Speed. Glenn Kotche from Wilco was there one day working on another record, so we had him in to play hand-percussion on a couple songs. Working 2 or 3 days at a time, leaving it with BJ, then back again for more, we don’t have the time or money to second-guess or pick from a pool of possibilities. This is the whole thought – the untamed truth. This is now. This is everything.”
