Low – The Invisible Way

Minnesota band Low (not of Flo Rida / ‘Shorty got…’ fame) have been around seemingly forever, pleasing critics but bothering Google more than they do the charts. However, we’ve heard their upcoming album The Invisible Way and can confirm that it should probably be your first purchase of 2013.

The trademark Low harmonies are out in full force over elegiac melodies – songs like Amethyst and Four Score recall a delicate beauty that hasn’t been seen in Americana since the collaboration of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Wonderful stuff all round.
