The Owls Go: Low in Paris

recently reported that Low will be releasing an album next year, entitled The Violet Path. I'm not really familiar with the band; my introduction actually came a few weeks ago. Former bassist Zak Sally wrote a piece on Tool for the Voice, which was met with consternation from the aforementioned Pitchfork folks. I later came across a remix of "Monkey" by Bob Mould, he of the Antics deluxe edition, which was enjoyable.

The band is classified as slowcore, a word that's vaguely reminiscent of the word shoegazer, at least as a method of etymology. However, while the latter depends on a roar of effects, Low is minimalist, although they seem to have gravitated more towards traditional rock on later works. I can't say it's my favorite style, but it's worth checking out.

This set was recorded in Paris in 2001. I'm aware that the band released an official live recording of Paris, but the track listing is different than this one.
