Cover of Low's 'The Great Destroyer'

From the trio Low, drummer Mimi Parker and singer-guitarist Alan Sparhawk. The two are husband and wife. The band also includes bassist Zak Sally. Low is considered a so-called "slowcore" band known for it's delicate, slow, moody tunes.

One reviewer writes "Low is one of those rare bands who have created such a distinct musical world for themselves that even major changes can't distract them from it... listening to any Low recording involves revisiting a wonderful sound that can't be found anywhere else."

The group from Duluth, Minn., made its debut in 1994 with the album I Could Live on Hope. Their most recent album The Great Destroyer (Sub Pop) is their seventh.
