If you don’t own Low’s 2007 release Drums and Guns (Sub Pop), the band is offering some nice incentive by making Murderer, one of the best songs on the album (maybe the year?) available as a download at its MySpace page.
And fear not, quasi-audiophiles: It’s a 192 kbps file.
Low was on my brain because I picked up a used 7-inch â€“ A-side: Hatchet (Optimimi Version); B-side: Breaker (Dub Plate) â€“ for 99 cents at Stinkweeds on Thursday.
Speaking of Low, the band is in Los Angeles this weekend for shows on Friday and Saturday at the Troubadour. Why would I, a Phoenician, care about such matters? Well, we’re going to LA on Friday to see the National (!) at the Wiltern. I know we’ll see this guy and maybe this guy.
We could see Low on Saturday or … hit this Neighborhood Festival with (oh, yeah) Spank Rock, A-Trak and Flosstradamus, among others.
You had me at Spank Rock.
