Retribution Gospel Choir
Caldo Verde Records
Easily the coolest Mormon to ever pick up a guitar and call it love, Low's Alan Sparhawk spreads his wings with this rocked-up side project, produced by Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek. Dirty, loud, resonating guitar in hand, Sparhawk sounds like anything but a minimalist here as he and his power trio riff their way through a mix of both new songs and Low standards, most of which work very well as holdover tunes until the next Low classic. Mimi, you're missed.
Great guitars and production hoisting up a familiar voice.
