Putting the band's pristine vocal harmonies and sparse arrangements through a digital blender, Low's latest album Double Negative is a daring permutation of its signature sound. The beautiful song-craft of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker is still recognizable, but producer BJ Burton finds interesting ways to deconstruct it, obscuring melodies with bursts of noise and turning rhythms into a serious of distorted thumps. It's the band's boldest reinvention since its 2007 album, Drums and Guns, and it's just as affecting as anything else in the Duluth, Minnesota act's catalog over the past 25 years. Minneapolis synth artist IN/VIA opens the show.
