Double Negative is the twelfth studio album by Low, released on September 14, 2018.
Double Negative is nothing but edges. It is an album with noise coming out of its wounds. It conjures the exact inverse of the sort beautifying restoration work done on the soundtracks of vintage films to remove thumps, hums, and crackles. Here thumps, hums, and crackles are piled on and the results are rarely short of stunning. On the surface, Double Negative may appear to be a collection of songs that were composed and then dismantled, a sort of electronic-indie answer to prefab distressed jeans. Making a socially conscious album might seem like an obvious move, but Low present something far more visceral than protest music, a body of work that doesn’t dictate but is more interested in a despair that galvanizes and paralyzes. The political and aesthetic here, in fact, are impossible to separate.
