It's been a great show yesterdan in Madrid. Not many people -there was the european football final-, but the band was fantastic! I love Low but this band has the energy that is somehow compressed in Low songs
Well, I don't know Low, nor Red House Painters, but I love this album! Sometimes I think it's good to hear an album with no ideas of what the band might sound like. (ie never having heard them before). it means you start with an unbiased base.
I love Low to death, but people got to start respecting Alan. Imagine how fucking bored you would be playing slow quiet stuff for 20 some years? The man just wants to rock and he does it damn well. Instead of stagnating and hitting a (pardon the pun) low, RGC is a the exact opposite and is bloody awesome. SEE THEM LIVE!
