Published Mar 12, 2013Low turned heads more than usual when they announced that Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy had produced their latest album, The Invisible Way. That anticipated record will arrive on March 19 through Sub Pop, and you can stream the entire thing now on Exclaim.ca.
The album was recorded at Wilco's studio in Chicago with Tom Schick (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright, M. Ward) handling engineering duties.
"While driving through Chicago on tour, we finally stopped to visit Wilco at their studio, the Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day," Low singer-guitarist Alan Sparhawk said in a statement. "What really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on — big, simple, raw and intimate. Plans were made then and there."
The Invisible Way is another stark, quiet album from these slowcore vets. Drummer Mimi Parker sings on several tracks, while much of the album taps into a dark alt-folk sound that faintly bear Tweedy's stamp.
