The version of "Disarray" they played last night was like the best 10 minutes of live music I've ever heard.

I normally couldn't care about live recordings of non-improvised music. But I'd really love a high-quality recording of a show on the tours since 'Double Negative,' because they've applied the same magic decaying angel choir sounds to older songs and they all sound amazing and genuinely distinct from earlier incarnations.
Also--so glad to see 'Bombscare' is back and has a chance to be recognized. That was what shifted my sense of Low from "lovely band who soothe my soul" to "this band can and will do anything, going forward" and cemented them as my favorite "rock" band going.

There are a couple high quality concert videos of this material on YouTube.

I listened to Secret Name for the first time a coupla months ago... think this might be the year I finally become a fanatical Low completist

I'm basically there too. I've listened to four of their albums now - The Great Destroyer and Ones and Sixes since my last post - and I feel like I'm 16 again: at that age, once I decided I loved a band, I listened to every second of every album attentively and obsessively. This decade, I've only given that level of attention to the 1975 and Low. To that end, I'm trying to go through their catalog slowly, but the urge is just to burn through everything. Crazy to think that I spent years seeing their name mentioned on ILM without bothering to listen

when i saw them this summer they made a mind-blowing version of 'do you know how to waltz'. a live recording of this tour would be amazing, indeed.

someone on this thread once challenged me for not playing low LPs all the way through, since i said i felt like some of their records wane a bit in the second half. but i came round. they were right. giving patience and open ears to low really lets you feel their full power. i think god speaks through their music quite a bit.
― meaulnes, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 14:17 (seven months ago) link
nice of god to speak somewhere for once
has anyone ever tried to listen to drums and guns from a set of speakers that mirrors the mix, with one speaker on the far left of the room, the other on the far right? that's the one i've always been unable to get through. it sounds awful on headphones (to me at least), and the stereo separation on my normal set up just comes out sounding weird. i can imagine it sounding really good if the speakers were far enough apart that it was possible to walk around a bit in the combined sound field.

It sounds great in the car

'Drums & Guns' is top 3 Low for me, and I love the hard panning for its unsettling effect that suits the music.

As per normal, we are coming in late like a northern Minnesota farmer. Mimi and Alan are probably doing an INSTAGRAM LIVE set for you tomorrow at around 1 or 2 central standard US. That should be evening for UK/Europe and middle of the night for Tokyo. More details to come. 💜— LOW (@lowtheband) April 2, 2020

I wonder if they will change things up at all, tonally. I love Low, but don't know if I want to love Low right now, necessarily.
― Josh in Chicago, Friday, 3 April 2020 12:48 (three months ago) link
it would be extremely funny if they chose this occasion to pivot to baggy funtime jams
― brechtian social distancing (Simon H.), Friday, 3 April 2020 12:56 (three months ago) link
Well, I assume they will sound like Low. But I dunno, maybe different covers? And their banter is usually funny. Just wondering if it will be the usual hour of "we're all going to die."
― Josh in Chicago, Friday, 3 April 2020 13:30 (three months ago) link
if it's going to be weekly then there's plenty of scope
― koogs, Friday, 3 April 2020 15:31 (three months ago) link
That was a lot of fun, really. New song, impromptu "Star Spangled Banner," "Murderer". Just good people.
― Soundslike, Friday, 3 April 2020 21:29 (three months ago) link
Tuned in just before they started “When I Go Deaf”. Actually lifted me to hear and see them play that and “Murderer” this evening, two songs I really love, and the new song sounded really good too.
― michaellambert, Friday, 3 April 2020 23:30 (three months ago) link
did they post a link to the show?
― that's not my post, Saturday, 4 April 2020 01:37 (three months ago) link
If you go to their Instagram profile and click on the profile picture then select “watch live video” you’ll be able to watch it back.

“When I Go Deaf” into “The Star Spangled Banner” got me misty-eyed.

Could anyone please share "It's All Been Done"? Someone posted a link here but it's expired now. It's such a shame the song wasn't made available for download. It's only featured in the Japanese release of Double Negative. Many thanks in advance.

over on twitter lowtheband joined tim's listening party to talk about their first album. pics, memories, etc
― that's not my post, Thursday, 7 May 2020 21:51 (two months ago) link
they played their IG live set today with no talking in honor of george floyd, which ended with an absolutely blistering performance of 'breaker.' totally wrecked me.
― donna rouge, Friday, 29 May 2020 20:45 (one month ago) link
They couldn't but end with "Breaker".
