Low – C’mon
Low can be an interesting proposition at times. They shift in different directions pretty well and often, but they maintain that “slowcore”-ish feel. For me, the Drums and Guns version was the best, but this version is cool – more direct, more emotional in a way. I’ve always liked Low for it’s ability to show that sort of dour telling of relationships/life. It’s also a bit more mainstream as well, which might ruffle a few feathers. However, I don’t think they made that move with the intention on being more like Arcade Fire, or anything like that. That being said, it’s not particularly new ground, which for me is a very slight minus. But double lead combination still works like a charm – one of the best vocal arrangements in any band ever. And they still make well written, well played songs – like “Try To Sleep”, “$20”, and “You See Everything” – my favorite.
Grade: B. Still going strong since ’93.
