What I appreciate most about this album is that it doesn't sound like any other Christmas album I've heard; it is uniquely Low. That being said, Low's music certainly isn't for everyone. Hailing from Duluth, they are considered pioneers of slowcore--"a genre of music characterized by haunting slow tempos, somber melodies, and forlorn vocals; also called sadcore (thanks, dictionary.com)." My favorite song here is the most upbeat one: "Just Like Christmas." Tracey Thorn (Everything But the Girl) covered "Taking Down the Tree" on her holiday album, Tinsel and Lights. Christmas and more music by Low are also available to download and keep at a rate of 5 songs per week through Hennepin County Library's Freegal subscription; find Freegal under Online Resources.
