Low - Double Negative [Tidal](2018)

Post image

I’m really not sure about this. Low going all electronic noize with hyper-processed/distorted vocals just hasn’t got me feeling the love.

I usually love this stuff but Low doing Eraserhead just isn’t right. There are some joyous/harmonious Low moments but these are scarce.

While it’s got all of the accolades from the music press I’m giving it a miss.

Thursday’s difficult record, “Swans - Seer”, was like listening to Danny Kaye in comparison to this.

This record just shouldn’t work. News Flash: Low, the protagonists of slowcore, embrace abrasive percussive elements and discordant organ textures. What it does uphold though, is the wonderful solo and harmonised voices of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker.
