Southern California’s FELL TO LOW is preparing to release their debut full-length LP, Low In The Dust, through Revelation Records, and the entire album has been leaked to the public early via a full stream at Noisey.
FELL TO LOW was formed in 2009 in the sleepy town of Ojai, California, slowly honing their sound, creating angular ’90s indie rock that takes cues from bands like Unwound, June Of 44 and Slint. Following the release of two successful 10″ EPs and two 7″ releases, Low In The Dust is the band’s debut full-length, and is a perfectly crafted record: every guitar note, every drum hit, every vocal howl has been painstakingly thought out and performed. Side A features four tracks that are at times heavy and technical, bringing to mind the more raucous moments of Drive Like Jehu with Side B featuring two tracks clocking in at over fourteen minutes each with a minimalist repetition made familiar by bands like Shellac. The record was mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac at Chicago Mastering to give it the perfect balance of cleanliness and grit, and is a testament to a band not willing to sacrifice quality over quantity in their output.
Noisey has launched FELL TO LOW‘s new LP into the airwaves early with an exclusive stream of the entire album. “Their new record Low In The Dust is a six track burner that shows everything the band is capable of,” offers the adjoining write-up of the record, continuing, “Each song progresses on its own, but the entire record itself provides a sonic narrative that will crush and excite you.”
FELL TO LOW’s entire Low In The Dust LP is now playing at Noisey RIGHT HERE.
Revelation Records will release Low In The Dust on July 24th. Preorders for the album on black and colored wax and including merch bundles are live at RevHQ now at THIS LOCATION.
FELL TO LOW has confirmed an intense West Coast tour of the US and Canada to begin less than a week following the release of Low In The Dust, with the final venue details to be announced in the coming days.
