SONG OF THE DAY: Low — “Try To Sleep”

|the crisp, suspirant purge|

Low’s latest album–their ninth–was released by Sub Pop in April.  As with all their previous efforts, C’mon is a slow-burner, revealing itself in time to be a careful study in restraint and a critical examination of us, here, today.

Be sure to check them out on Sunday, September 25th at Colorado College’s Armstrong Theater at 7pm.  Check out KRCC’s website  for more details.

The Lowdown: the two-day/-night event will spotlight some of the nation’s best underground electronic acts and some of Colorado’s best local acts alongside one another.  The 30+ artists featured run the genre gamut from ambient (the bristling and warm Quiet Evenings), to drone (The Kevin Costner Suicide Pact), to dreampop (Candy Claws, HAPPY NEW YEAR), to ambient folk (Chris Rehm), with some post-nineties shoegaze (Colorado Springs’ Junior Low) thrown in to round things out.  Tennis, of Llamapalooza 2011 fame, and How to Dress Well headline the festival.
