It seems like yesterday that Duluth, Minn.-based Low put out its first release. After nearly 12 years off and on the club circuit, Low has garnered the kind of respect from both the industry and its fan base that other bands would kill for. On The Great Destroyer, Low’s latest LP and the first on Seattle’s legendary Sub Pop Records, the trio changes gears drastically—opting for dense sonic wash and up-tempo rhythms. Fans of earlier albums, such as Trust and the exceptional Things We Lost in the Fire, will be happy that Mimi Parker and Alan Sparhawk’s harmonies are still spot-on. Although the slow-core fan base may be put off by the obvious change at first, upon further inspection it all will make perfect sense. You’d be a fool to miss this show in your very own backyard. Low plays Harlow’s, located at 2708 J Street, with Pedro the Lion at 10 p.m. on Monday. Admission is $12. Visit www.harlows.com for tickets and information.
