"Joy Division meets Simon and Garfunkel"--www.kranky.net

Duluth band Low strip songs to their bare essentials. In their live shows, they build them back up again in a dramatic, slow burn.

Singer/guitarist Alan Sparhawk, singer/drummer Mimi Parker, and bassist Zak Sally of the Duluth, Minnesota trio, Low, have become international, indie-rock favorites with their beguiling minimalist songs and distilled slow-core dynamics.

This tour coincides with the release of a new CD produced by Steve Albini, who also worked with Low on their acclaimed previous release, Things We Lost in the Fire. Their show here promises more of the wide-open spaces, ethereal harmonies, and sparse-yet-captivating lyrics that have marked Low's rise.
