Listen to the new Deaf Wish track “They Know”

This just in: Listen to Deaf Wish’s “They Know,” the second offering from the band’s forthcoming album, Pain as premiered by Noisey this morning.
 
Pain will be available on CD/ LP/DL worldwide August 7th on Sub Pop. The album was recorded & produced by the band at Reservoir, Victoria, mixed by Mikey Young and mastered by April Golden at Golden Mastering. Pain is the follow up to their label debut, the 4-song St. Vincent’s 7” single, released last October.

Noisey had this to say of the band and “They Know”:  
“From the start, the foursome (consisting of bassist Nick Pratt, drummer Daniel Twomey and guitarists Sarah Hardiman and Jensen Tjhung) have shared a basic philosophy; keep it loud but simple. Their live performance bleeds with genuine charisma. It’s a tenacious and aggressive approach to creating music that has an almost disdain for predictability and code…“They Know” taken from the album clocks in at just under a minute-and-a-half but is indicative of the Deaf Wish spirit. Two guitars play at max volume, a drum sets getting a trouncing while Hardiman effortlessly coos, “What do they know (see premiere June 29th).)?”
 
Pain is now available for preorder from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.  LP preorders from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited Loser edition on clear, black marbled vinyl (while supplies last). There will also be a new T-shirt design, available individually and as part of a bundle with purchase of the new record.

Low’s ‘Ones and Sixes’ Out September 11th 2015 - Hear New Track “No Comprende” Now

Low’s Ones and Sixes, the group’s latest studio effort, will be released on CD / LP / DL  worldwide Friday, September 11th. The album, featuring the standouts “No Comprende”,  “What Part of Me,” “Gentle,” and “No End,” was co-produced by the band and engineer BJ Burton at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

You can find the lead single, “No Comprende” on our YouTubeSoundcloud accounts, as well as streaming services like Spotify, Rdio and TuneIn.
 
Low’s Alan Sparhawk had this offer about the new album: “In our 20+ years of writing songs, I’ve learned that no matter how escapist, divergent, or even transcendent the creative process feels, the result is more beholden to what is going on at the moment.  It’s hard to admit that one is so influenced by what is in front of us.  Doesn’t it come from something magical and far away?  No, it comes from here.  It comes from now.  I’m not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself.

“I will, however, tell you about how we made it. BJ contacted us a few years ago and invited us out to the studio where he works with Justin, Lizzo, and other artists. The studio is close to our home in Duluth, so it seemed tempting. Months later, I worked with BJ, producing the recent record by Trampled by Turtles. We got along and seemed to have similar curiosity about the possibilities for Low, so time was booked and songs finished. We tracked under the soft glow of laser discs playing lost classics like Point Break and Speed. Glenn Kotche from Wilco was there one day working on another record, so we had him in to play hand-percussion on a couple songs. Working 2 or 3 days at a time, leaving it with BJ, then back again for more, we don’t have the time or money to second-guess or pick from a pool of possibilities. This is the whole thought - the untamed truth. This is now. This is everything.”
 
Low has booked an extensive North American and European tour in support of Ones and Sixes, beginning September 18th in Madison, Wisconsin and ending November 21st in Seattle, Washington. They’ll play their largest headlining date in London’s iconic Roundhouse on October 10th. Additionally, there are a few shows preceding the fall trek:  Low’s first-ever tour of China (June 30th-July 4th);  the Eaux Claires Festival in Eau Claire, WI (July 17th-18th); the Perfect Sound Forever Fest in Bergen, Norway (September 3rd); and UK appearances at both the End of the Road and Electric Picnic Festivals  (September 4th-6th / select dates). For general information on tickets please visithttp://chairkickers.com/shows (see Pitchfork News Story June 23rd)
 
Low’s Ones and Sixes will be available from the Sub Pop Mega MartiTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp. The limited “Loser Edition” of the LP on yellow vinyl will be available from select independent stores and megamart.subpop.com (while supplies last). There will also be two new T-shirt designs available, both as individual items and as part of CD and LP bundles.

For greater insight on Ones and Sixes, we encourage you to readStereogum’s interview with Low’s Alan Sparhawk about the making of the new album (see June 23rd feature).

Get well soon, Eddie.

Thanks, guys.
