Low_concert

I saw the rock group Low at the Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday night. Thor didn't want to go... he said he caught them a few years and and they were boring. Low specializes is really quiet "shoegazer" music.

However, in the last few years, they seem to be struggling intentionally against that label. They expanded from a trio to a quartet with bass, guitar, drums, and keyboard, and many songs on the their new CD "C'mon" are actually quite raucous. But the crowd seemed to like the dramatic plodding songs the most, where one phrase was repeated over and over again like a mantra:

Oh majesty, oh magic,
Oh majesty, oh magic,
Oh majesty, oh magic,
Oh majesty, oh magic.

or

I'm nothing but heart
I'm nothing but heart
I'm nothing but heart (repeat 20x)
