Riff: Low – “So Blue”

Feb 27, 2013

I take a breath/No longer dare/To be the death of you/Of you/So blue/So blue/With you

from So Blue lyrics by Low

Familiar catharsis from Duluth’s patron saints of brooding folk, Mimi Parker gets hymnal with a Laura Palmer-sad, Twin Peaks thumping piano fill, on one of her rare vocal leads that poaches that true blue feeling one can only find upon encroaching the light from the caverns of depression; [LISTEN].
