Low In-depth Biography

Formed in Duluth, Minnesota in 1994, Low} was perhaps the slowest of the so-called "slowcore}" bands -- delicate, austere, and hypnotic, the trio's music rarely rose above a whisper, divining its dramatic tension in the unsettling open spaces created by the absence of sound. Initially comprising the husband and wife team of guitarist/vocalist Alan Sparhawk} and drummer/vocalist Mimi Parker} along with bassist John Nichols}, Low} began as an experimental} reaction to the predominance of grunge}; Shimmy Disc} producer Kramer} soon invited the group to record at his Noise N.J}. studios, and the resulting demos earned them a deal with the Vernon Yard} label.

After re-entering the studio with Kramer}, Low} emerged with their 1994 debut I Could Live in Hope}, a beautiful set spotlighting the trio's hauntingly minimal aesthetic -- even Parker}'s drum set consisted only of a snare and a hi-hat. Nichols} exited the group prior to 1995's lovely Long Division}, recorded with new bassist Zak Sally}; a subsequent appearance on the Joy Division} tribute A Means to an End} was later expanded into the following year's Transmission} EP, a five-track set also featuring a rendition of Supreme Dicks}' "Jack Smith."} With new producer Steve Fisk}, Low} returned later in 1996 with The Curtain Hits the Cast}. The Songs for a Dead Pilot} EP followed in 1997 and marked their debut for Kranky}, where they released such critically-acclaimed albums as 1999's Secret Name} and 2001's Things We Lost in the Fire}. The late '90s also saw them issue Owl (Low Remixes)} and the Christmas} mini-album, which featured a cover of "Little Drummer Boy"} that became a minor hit when it was featured in the Gap}'s holiday} season commercials in 2000 . The band's brilliant Things We Lost in the Fire} arrived in 2001, with the darker, more subdued Trust} coming the following year. Two years later, the B-sides/rare tracks collection A Lifetime of Temporary Relief} appeared on Low}'s own Chairkickers Music} imprint. For their seventh full-length album, 2005's The Great Destroyer}, the group moved to Sub Pop}. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
