living happily together as wife & husband in duluth, minnesota,
the core of low have been creating delicate music since 1994. 

my first introduction was the rarity sleep at the bottom which came from their 7″ split collaboration shared with piano magic and transient waves.  i remember listening to it distinctly as being able to quietly relax, as the music kept me lost inside subtle electronic details, reflective harmonies and gently striking drum n’ bass.  to this day, beautifully with their new 2007 album breaker, low still provide clarity for all that makes sound meaningful.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    when i saw low last month, breaker was a real highlight of the show. in fact, they played two versions of it. the stripped down one, in which mimi invited us all to clap along as the only drumbeat, and then a really loud, blown-out version in the encore. they were both amazing.
