Episode 7: Alan Sparhawk (Low)
RECORDED AS POP CULTURE CLUB: One of my all-time favorite bands is Low. They've been around for over 20 years, and I first heard them back in 2001 for the record Things We Lost In The Fire. Now they are about to release their 11th full-length record next month entitled Ones & Sixes, and I couldn't be more excited to hear it based on the first two singles. I play a sample of the first single, and end the show with the second single as well as a couple of snippets of two of my favorite Low songs.
But most importantly, I got to spend a half hour talking with an incredible songwriter, Alan Sparhawk, who along with his wife Mimi, create music alongside bassist Steve Garrington. Tickets are on sale now for their North American and European Tours. Low will be joined by Andy Shauf, Two Gallants, Mike Noga (The Drones), and Chelsea Wolfe so this is a show you won't want to miss, and another interview that I couldn't be happier to share with you. Special thanks to Bekah at SubPop and Low's management for making this happen, and thank YOU for listening.
