≥  We here at Sub Pop are honored to have our name attached to The Invisible Way, Low’s tenth album in 20 years as a band. Rather than put together our own, inevitably-inadequate description of the album, we will let Low’s Alan Sparhawk do the talking:
≥  “While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day. It’s a great place—a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It’s cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate. Plans were made then and there.
’Don’t break my Grammy streak.’
≥  We have worked with many of the great engineer/producers. Jeff Tweedy has been on our side of the microphone for over 25 years, however with engineer (and fellow Grammy winner) Tom Schick, he has of late become a formidable and eclectic producer. He spoke a language we understood, but then took us effortlessly into the mystery.
≥  We’ve made many records, and you know our M.O.: slow, quiet, sometimes melancholy, and, we hope, sometimes pretty…
How is this different from any other Low record?
≥  - Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite).
≥  - Piano, lots of piano… and an acoustic guitar.
≥  - Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archeology, and love.
≥  Thank you for your time again and please enjoy what we made. I think it’s beautiful."
French: pour leur 20eme anniversaire, le groupe Low a choisi de proposer un album produit par Jeff Tweedy (Wilco). Un choix particulierement judicieux, l'album, tout en nuances feutrées et délicates, comme d'habitude, est sorti. Recommandé. Je vous l'avais déja proposé fin décembre, mais sans l'EP bonus. (Note pour les amateurs: Tous les autres albums ont également été proposés...)

≥  Sub Pop Records is excited to announce that Low is offering a special bonus disc with all pre-orders of their new record, The Invisible Way, out March 19. Titled The Visible End, the four-song disc features three demos of album tracks and one instrumental. The full tracklisting is below. The Invisible Way was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco’s studio in Chicago, IL, during the fall of 2012.
≥  A download of the song “Just Make It Stop,” which Pitchfork claimed ” is more ample proof that Low are excellent at turning out a song with a simple architecture and deceptively complex emotions,” is available HERE for DOWNLOAD. https://soundcloud.com/subpop/low-just-make-it-stop
≥  The Invisible Way finds Low’s majestic melancholy in full bloom yet distinguishes itself with its starker, unadorned soundscapes, layered harmonies and drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Mimi Parker singing lead on five of the 11 songs. The album tackles large issues (“the songs are about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archaeology and love,” says Sparhawk) in a manner that plays a stunning counterpoint to the sublime hush of the music.

Sparhawk began writing his own compositions around the age of 13. He later married Parker, and eventually began performing with her in the band Low, releasing their first album in 1994. As of 2011, Low has released nine full-length studio albums.
