Low

Sub Pop will release Low’s Ones and Sixes, the group’s latest studio effort worldwide Friday, September 11th. The album was co-produced by the band and engineer BJ Burton at April Base Studios in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  Low’s Alan Sparhawk had this offer about the new album: “In our 20+ years of writing songs, I've learned that no matter how escapist, divergent, or even transcendent the creative process feels, the result is more beholden to what is going on at the moment.  It's hard to admit that one is so influenced by what is in front of us.  Doesn't it come from something magical and far away?  No, it comes from here.  It comes from now.  I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself."
