Time flies. Whilst I’ve been away, all sorts of things have happened.
A new Yo La Tengo album that sounds like the last ones!1
A new My Bloody Valentine album that sounds like the last one!2
A new Thom Yorke/supergroup album that isn’t as hideously, tooth-clenchingly dreary as you’d expect it to be and is actually, at some points, almost fun!3
A set of Kraftwerk shows so exclusive that I had to cadge a ticket off a mate, and then found another mate just walked up to the doors when it opened, asked “You got any spares?” and was told “Yes, go over to that door there” and he got in 10 minutes later!
Anyway, yes, stuff’s been happening.
And last night a tiny little part of my brain said “Let’s have some Low then” and so my playing fingers responded, last night and today on the commute. Only to hear that there’s a new Low album out. Don’t you love it when that happens?
I love Low.
This makes me a happy man.
The Invisible Way is out on 19th March 2013 on Sub Pop, and you can pre-order it here. Please do so. You won’t regret it.
