Low – “So Blue”
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy produced The Invisible Way, the new album from the Minnesota slowcore heroes Low, and we’ve already posted the early songs “Plastic Cup” and “Just Make It Stop.” But “So Blue,” the third and best song we’ve heard from the album thus far, is the one of the three that shows the least influence from Tweedy. It’s an old-school Low burner, quiet and placid and beautiful until the moment when you realize that it’s become a stormy, powerful thing. Tweedy adds a few more instruments that Low would’ve done themselves back in the day, but the song still feels like it could’ve come straight from Secret Name. Download it below.
The Invisible Way is out 3/19 on Sub Pop.
