Product Description

From the ominous, post-punkish pulse and clang

of opener ‘Monkey’, to the decidedly punky

frustration of ‘Everybody’s Song’ and the

unapologetic riffing of ‘California’, ‘The Great

Destroyer’ pushes the band’s sound on to thrilling

new vistas” – The Guardian

 Formed in 1993, Low are a trio from Duluth,

Minnesota comprised of guitarist/vocalist Alan

Sparhawk, percussionist/vocalist Mimi Parker and

bassist Zak Sally.

 Initially garnering attention as leaders of the ‘90s

slowcore movement, Low went on to develop a

sonic repertoire that incorporated pop, R&B and

dissonant rock ‘n’ roll. With this kind of storied

history, most people thought they had Low

pegged. But then they turned in ‘The Great

Destroyer’.

 The band’s seventh full-length album, ‘The Great

Destroyer’ is fascinating in that it blends the band’s

austere melodies (‘On the Edge Of’, ‘Silver Rider’)

with an aggressive guitar onslaught (‘Monkey’,

‘Everybody’s Song’) and even melds Low’s varied

styles together into a single song (‘When I Go

Deaf’).

 Co-produced by Low and David Fridmann (Flaming

Lips, Mercury Rev), ‘The Great Destroyer’ was a

welcome surprise and, in the end, a rock ‘n’ roll

revelation.

 Now available once again on double vinyl.
