I thought of you today James when I got this mail from Resident Records:-

"there are many, many artists/bands that consistently deliver for us. those that have come to help define what we think of as the beating heart of resident. those that we come back to time & time again. those that have surfed us over the highs & carried us through the lows. there is one band however, that stand out above them all. they started out long before resident was born & have been releasing albums throughout the life of the shop. they unfailingly unite derry & i. they have found their way into the hearts & souls of many a resident, past & present.

that band is the mighty, almighty….low
and on september 14th, alan, mimi & steve will return to grace our stereos with ‘double negative’."

These new songs are very deconstructed. Not sure if I like them, but props to Low for pushing hard in the direction of weirdness.

This album is pretty crazy. I sorta doubt it's something that will stick with me, but it's an interesting experiment.

I've been listening to this album a lot and I have to stay it still blows me away on every listen. The distortion on 'Tempest' just absolutely floors me. Intense wall of sound just slapping you in the face.

I love it. Especially so late in their carreer. I'm so impressed.

Not sure how it leaked this early but i am currently listening to forthcoming album 'Hey What'.

It's in a similar vein to Double Negative and right now i'm digging it. Songs segue into each other and there are chunks of noise and electronic quirks, with Alan & Mimi's vocals cutting through it all. Not sure how they'll reproduce it live mind you. On the previous tour i had my doubts as to how much of it was actually live. It was still a good gig though.

Ticket bought for Dublin next April :D

Landsliding and mountainsplitting album. And so brave. Extraordinary listening trip. Makes you eager for more brave personality among other music.
