Low can be so suffocatingly bleak at times â€“ OK, most times â€“ that even the slightest moment of lightheartedness can feel so much more than that.
In the latest edition of the Onion A.V. Club’s Undercover series, the Minnesota-based slowcore outfit tackles Toto’s “Africa” with results that are both unintentionally hilarious (Alan Sparhawk’s breathy grunts on the opening beat) and beautiful (Mimi Parker’s voice is amazing).
Low’s great new album, C’Mon, was released last month and I encourage you to read Scott Tennent’s great analysis of it at Pretty Goes With Pretty.

I really enjoyed this and would not have listened if you hadn’t recommended it. Cheers.
