Low – “Plastic Cup”
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.
