|FELL TO LOW LOW IN THE DUST Limited Coloured Vinyl LP + Download
FELL TO LOW were formed in 2009 in the sleepy town of Ojai, California, slowly honing their sound, creating angular ‘90s indie rock that takes cues from bands like UNWOUND, JUNE OF 44 and SLINT. Low In The Dust is the band’s first full-length after two 10” EPs and two 7”s and is a perfectly crafted record: every guitar note, every drum hit, every vocal howl has been painstakingly thought out and performed. Side A features four tracks that are at times heavy and technical, bringing to mind the more raucous moments of DRIVE LIKE JEHU with Side B featuring two tracks clocking in at over 14 minutes each with a minimalist repetition made familiar by bands like SHELLAC. The record was mastered by Bob Weston of SHELLAC at Chicago Mastering to give it the perfect balance of cleanliness and grit, and is a testament to a band not willing to sacrifice quality over quantity in their output.
