'Every one of the 11 tracks here feels impeccably structured, plotted, weighted, watertight. But there is a delight here too, the sheer pleasure of sploshing about in the musical depths, that brings a heart-winning charm to this record.' [BBC, Laura Barton]

The Low Lows +
“Gut-wrenchingly raw & poetic in it’s intensity, the Low Lows creep stealthily & astound with the extent to which one album can be so considered and yet sound so un-contrived. Comparisons with Sparklehorse & early Velvet Underground seem a given, and it is the lyricism evident in all three that is the true nexus of TLL’s wares… The lyrics, knifelike in their concentration, would steal all attention if it were not for the expertly restrained instrumentation that surrounds them. Perfect.”
