LOW LIFE: Downer Edn: LP

May 20, 2019

This one was a bit of a dark horse for me, but the more I listen the more I like it. Tinny guitars, swirling synths, understated melodies, and mumbled vocals converge to produce a fully unique sound. At first it was hard for me to reconcile all the seemingly disparate elements of Downer Edn, but by the third track I was totally hooked. Props to the alchemists of Low Life for turning me into a believer. -Simone Carter (Goner, [email protected], goner-records.com)
