Last month we got the scoop that Low had completed work on their 10th album, The Invisible Way, which had been produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy at his Chicago studio. Now, music from that album has emerged. “Plastic Cup” doesn’t venture too far from Low’s sweet spot — it’s unhurried, dark, and warm, with Alan and Mimi harmonizing sweetly — but you can hear Tweedy’s stamp, too, in the oaken tones and especially in Mimi’s kick-drum sound. NPR’s streaming it now; go check it out.


The Invisible Way is out 3/13 via Sub Pop.

  1. The album leaked on Christmas. It’s not bad, but it’s amongst one of my least favorites by them since it’s more or less a stripped, quiet, small acoustic affair — Much too sparse from a band who has always been willing to explore the unusual.

  2. Sounds a bit like Medicine Magazines from TWLITF.

  3. “the album leaked 3 days ago and I already know it’s the worst they made”
    This really gets thumbs up ?

  4. I like it.

  5. These guys need a from-worst-to-best (with Things We Lost at an inappropriate #3, natch)
