"While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day. It's a great place—a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It's cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate. Plans were made then and there.

'Don't break my Grammy streak.'
We have worked with many of the great engineer/producers. Jeff Tweedy has been on our side of the microphone for over 25 years, however with engineer (and fellow Grammy winner) Tom Schick, he has of late become a formidable and eclectic producer. He spoke a language we understood, but then took us effortlessly into the mystery.

We've made many records, and you know our M.O.: slow, quiet, sometimes melancholy, and, we hope, sometimes pretty…
How is this different from any other Low record?
- Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite).
- Piano, lots of piano… and an acoustic guitar.
- Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archaeology, and love.

Thank you for your time again and please enjoy what we made. I think it's beautiful."

Autumn Owls
Autumn Owls is a four-piece from Dublin whose music is described as "a bit like Nick Drake's older brother singing for an experimental Wilco." Their latest EP "On the Trail of the Disappearing" was greeted with a wave of critical acclaim from Irish, UK and US reviewers and marked a new, bigger and more adventurous sound from the band where "brooding, rich sound of acoustic guitars, subtle keyboard and husky vocals make for some haunting listening."
