Try to Sleep, from the album C'mon

Biography

“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 ... Read more in Amazon's Low Store

Editorial Reviews

C'mon is the shortest title of any Low album, which seems fitting, as it also ranks among their most succinct and straightforward releases. Recorded in a former Catholic church, Sacred Heart Studio, the band took full advantage of the room's high, vaulted ceilings, natural reverb, and affinity for organ sounds and group singing. Whereas 2007's Drums and Guns railed against the war in Iraq, C'mon feels like a plea for humanity, decency and common sense in a world gone mad. Without curtailing their artistry one iota, the trio has made one of its most accessible, affecting albums to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low - Scale the heights April 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
There is something very odd and perplexing about playing Yuletide albums all year round or on hot sunny days (e.g. - yesterday) but the great "Christmas" album by "Low" the Minnesotan slowcore masters repays regular listens and its fine quality partly reminds you of some of the themes of their new album "C'mon". In essence Low are a band who more than anything else produce the most gorgeous songs. "C'mon" was recorded at an old church in Duluth and is their ninth album in a very long career. It comes on top of this decades renaissance man Robert Plant showcasing two sparkling Low covers on his recent Band of Joy LP (Monkey and Silver Rider) and in doing so generating welcome interest in this critically lauded trio. Who cares if this album doesn't end up on sale in your local supermarket or deliver gold records for the trophy cabinet, what Low do is grace music lovers with the priceless service of producing music you can revere, which can soundtrack your variable life episodes and that can genuinely leave you wanting more.

On this album they have called in Nels Cline the innovative guitarist from Wilco to play on a couple of tracks including "Done" which you suspect may turn out to be one of their greatest songs with its almost 50s classic ballad feel and infused throughout by the trademark heart stopping dual vocals from Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker (it goes without saying that bassist Steve Garrington is as sure footed as ever). The album opens with the shimmering "Try to sleep" and you notice immediately the crisp production which enhances all these songs for which we must to thank Matt Beckley, a man best known for his work with the likes of Leona Lewis and Avril Lavigne (he should now be forgiven).

4.0 out of 5 stars A new high for Low? April 12, 2011
By H3@+h
Format:MP3 Music
It's hard to believe this is like their...8th or 9th album? The unknown Minnesota band keeps chugging along with the first release in four years. I tend to listen to them more in cold weather, but I welcome a Spring release. After a few listens this reminds me of their Things We Lost In The Fire album, kind of simple...sparse. "20" is a good duet between Alan and Mimi. "Witches" is a bit more noisy than the norm, but I like it.

I get kind of tired of every third band being compared to Neil Young in some way, but that's a sound I pick up in this album. Not a bad thing of course. Most of this folking rocks. Robert Plant should dig it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs-Up to Low and Beckley! June 1, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
This was my first listen to the band, Low. After just one time through their new CD "C'mon", I was for sure a new fan! The more I listen to "C'mon", the more hooked I become. In fact, I have purchased and I am currently listening to one of their previous CD's, "The Great Destroyer", along with two more CD's ( "Trust" and "Drums and Guns") on order. I find Mimi Parker's voice to be beautifully charming in "Especially Me" and "You See Everything". I have to agree with one of the previous customer reviewers, that Mimi Parker sounds very much like a young Carly Simon, which is indeed a very fine compliment. The song "Nightingale" is my favorite. The richly harmonic voices of Parker and Alan Sparhawk and the soft, slow, mysterious music sets the mind and body adrift in a continual wave of sensuous intoxication. Anytime, that Parker and Sparhawk get together in song, it is pleasing to one's ears. Low's new producer, Matt Beckley, deserves to be commended for his stellar production talent. He has brought the voices and music together to form a warm and exciting CD. Low and Beckley appear to be a great fit. I look forward to hearing about another new Low CD, hopefully in the near future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired April 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite Low album, along with The Great Destroyer. Both these album have the one long operatic build-up track (Broadway, So Many People and Nothing But Heart)that propel the albums into classic status in my opinion.
I'd like to see another attempt on a future Low album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible March 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Low has been putting out amazing music for quite some time, and this album continues to increase the overall quality of their output. Many of the traditional qualities of Low are still present, but there are many new twists and turns to surprise the long-time fan of their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet music begging to be played loudly January 27, 2013
By JD
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sadly, I have missed the boat on Low to this point. I heard a positive review and decided to give this album a try. In a word, brilliant.

The dedication to the album as product is clear. The stage is set with the mid-tempo opener "Try to Sleep", and it continues throughout the rest of the songs. I like the sequencing so much that it would be exciting to see this album performed live in its entirety.

As a fan of the studio album, I am delighted to hear Low take clear-cut but subtle advantage of the tools available to them. Tiny echoes of banjo, clever uses of effects, and gutsy cuts in accompaniment serve to make this a more human, more approachable album.

Needless to say, I will have to explore the rest of the Low catalog in earnest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful! April 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Low's newest album gets them back to doing what they do best. Without the heavy production of Dave Fridmann (love you for the other albums you've done), I believe Low shines on this album. It reminds me of my favorite Low album "Trust". The opening song, "Try to Sleep" is a sweet lullaby. "Nothing But Heart" is a little over eight minutes long-starts out soft, then gradually builds to an emotional crescendo. I really believe to sum up this album, forgive me for being corny by saying this, but really Low has nothing but heart on this album. Great job and thanks!
