Editors’ Notes

The decision to record The Invisible Way at Jeff Tweedy's Chicago studio helped ensnare Tweedy for the producer role and make this album the most singer/songwriter–like album of Low's slo-core career. Mimi Parker handles five lead vocals (previously unheard of), with "Waiting" giving longtime fans an idea of what Americana ballads would sound like done the Low way. Of course, the Low way in 2013 is but a distant non-echo of the band's heavily reverbed past, where the beauty was in the mystic tones that sounded as if they were bouncing off of a cathedral's walls. Low's songs have been slowly rising to the surface with instrumental and vocal parts more clearly defined, but never quite like this. "Clarence White" could be a tribute to the former Byrds member, but the lyrics suggest something less quantifiable. "So Blue" actually threatens to cruise before the band falls away to better expose the harmonies. "Just Make It Stop" sounds like an AM radio piano-based pop tune. "Holy Ghost" mixes gospel and the blues as only Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker can design it.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding

There isn't a clunker on here. The harmonies are, as usual, outstanding, with Mimi taking the lead on more songs than usual. Jeff Tweedy's production is understated and focused more on bringing out the genius that is Low. A really superb record.

I've only heard the previews.

And two songs in their entirety, So Blue and Just Make it Stop. But I can already tell that The Invisible Way will be an amazing album. There is some beautiful production on here, along with Low's trademark vocal harmonies.

Outstanding!

Amazing album!

Formed in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1993, Low were perhaps the slowest of the so-called "slowcore" bands -- delicate, austere, and hypnotic, the trio's music rarely rose above a whisper, divining its dramatic tension in the unsettling open spaces created by the absence of sound. Initially comprising the husband-and-wife team of guitarist/vocalist Alan Sparhawk and drummer/vocalist Mimi Parker along with bassist John Nichols, Low began as an experimental reaction to the predominance of grunge.
