Released:
Label: Astralwerks
Low's quietly triumphant 1996 album The Curtain Hits the Cast is a masterpiece of so-called "slowcore." The meditative tempo is just a foil for the delicate vocal interplay between husband-and-wife duo Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, while bassist Zak Sally lays down a low end as darkly sumptuous as the chocolaty velvet curtain on the album's cover. Hesitant snare and hi-hat provide a spartan frame for bass-and-guitar arrangements that feel like paintings come to life. Minimalism rarely felt so alive.
