Slowcore Masterpiece, Etched 1st Pressing – Mine at Last!

Low - Things We Lost (original etched pressing) 12-25-11

Almost any fan of Low’s music will tell you – all of their albums are fantastic, but Things We Lost in the Fire is their greatest work.

After an exhaustive search, I was ready to give up, as every original copy I found was priced between $50 and $150.  It had been repressed multiple times but I couldn’t tell if the newer copies still featured the spiraling lyrics etched on side D.

I finally found this NM original copy listed online from a used record shop in Chicago and snatched it up for just $12.99!

Low is legendary for creating beautiful tension with their music by playing as slow as possible.   Check out “Whitetail” from this 2001 gem.
