Never heard of ‘slowcore’? Then check out the divinely downbeat, near-funereal take on alternative pop which Low pioneered in the early ’90s. It may sound depressing, but this ever-wonderful trio from Minnesota wring exquisite sweetness from their sadness, mining a vein of mordant humour and also featuring some thrillingly filthy and anguished guitar work from Alan Sparhawk.
