Low, The Great Destroyer
LP, Sub Pop in USA, Rough Trade in UK/EU

Low, of the long melodies and sweet harmonies, created a bit of lowkey fuss when this was released over a year ago in the US. There was big, thick, guitar in there! Rock out guys! Well, in fact, it is very much a Low thing and they haven't actually gone heavy metal or anything and at least half the songs have more muted guitar work.

It is a sweet thing. In tracks like the opening 'Monkey' the distortion adds a nice edge while Alan and Mimi craft their harmonies over the top with Mimi sounding particularly angelic.

You can catch a conversation with Alan as well as bits of the opening and closing tracks from next month's (June 06) main Mstation Podcast.
