This one’s 14 years old as a cover, but it’s perhaps the best rendition of this song omitting possibly only the original. Low slow the tempo to a narcotic level and milk every note for sullen strength. An elegia to the original’s fervent howl.
The Society for Ethical Culture’s Concert Hall seems to be the ideal venue for Low's somber songs to unfold, because the duo’s showing on the New York date of their current tour was unbelievably gripping.
Low's warmest, most accessible album comes after some difficult years that resulted in the band's thorniest and often best work. Thankfully the result should speak to long-running fans just as much as to new listeners.
