I’m having a bit of an American and Canadian indie rock day. The National, Destroyer, Bill Callahan and Kurt Vile have been filling the humid and misty Plymouth air. This weather is a stark contrast to the morning I saw Low perform their newest album The Invisible Way. It was bright, hot and the music helped me drift into relaxation. This dull mist although not as nice as bright sunshine certainly fits the bands style more effectively and as the year is turning into autumn and this weather is going to become more common I thought it would be time to re-post this gem of a song.
On My Own, the penultimate song on the album, starts out straight-forward, following the template of many of the previous songs, lamenting the fear of being lonely. Half way through it breaks down into distorted heavy guitars and skewed piano shattering the previously stuck to pattern of calm thoughtful melodies.
It’s the weekend, have a listen to this and the full album, relax.
