Low – The Invisible Way

Image

Low have been around for 20 years now, and something that has made them so lasting is the way they embrace and then emulate their producers. Having worked with Kramer, Steve Fisk, Steve Albini, Dave Fridmann and Matt Beckley they’ve been across the board. On The Invisible Way the band joins with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, and they morph their sound into a lush rendition of the edged folk tracks Tweedy is renowned for. Every instrument is gentle, and the pace seams to gain momentum across the 11 tracks. Alan Spearhawk and Mimi Parker split the vocals more evenly than on most Low releases. The Invisible Way is another bend in Low’s winding career.
