Low albums were always a must buy for me after Trust came along. I was to see them perform in Houston around '05 or '06 and found out that the show was cancelled right as I was leaving my apartment. After Ones and Sixes came out in 2015, they went through Houston on a Monday night. I had childcare lined up so that my wife and I could attend. When she got held up at work, I initially felt a bit guilty attending solo, but the performance washed that away. For reasons that baffle me, the venue was this strange small space attached to a "record store" that more resembled a vinyl garage sale tucked in a warehouse north of downtown. Maybe 100 people were there, and I stood there leaning against a metal beam feet away from a stage barely elevated off the floor. Everyone spoke in hushed tones when they weren't playing, and there was revenant silence for the music. There were several moments of utter beauty.

We go hiking in Estes Park CO most summers. My flu equivalent altitude sickness really makes these hikes a struggle, though I do my best to hide it from my wife for fear of ruining her vacation. On the last day of hiking this summer, I felt so awful as we pulled into the trailhead. I then threw on some earphones and played 2001's Things We Lost in the Fire. All the discomfort faded away as the music matched the visuals.

Things We Lost In The Fire is a really great album.

It feels like the next big nostalgia trip will be a lot of that Bush-years indie-rock, sadcore, dream-pop, flannel rock that was everywhere in the 2000's. Not the Strokes/Interpol/Arcade Fire stuff but the Low/Fleet Foxes/Shins/Iron&Wine stuff.

My favorite Low song is Just Like Christmas. I worked retail for a few years when I was young, and then later worked a non-retail job that was in the Mall of America. So I am pretty sick of all the mainstream Christmas songs, but enjoy songs like this that capture the right spirit without being too familiar. One of my current guilty pleasure tv shows is The Sex Lives of College Girls (HBO), and they ended this week's episode with Just Like Christmas and I suddenly felt better about the show and life and everything. A good song can do that for me. One of the showrunners likely picked the song in honor of Mimi Parker.

Christine McVie died today. I didn't appreciate Fleetwood Mac enough back during their peak in the '70s, but I will definitely be listening to Rumours tonight.

This song has been intermittently stuck in my head for days now, because it really captures my feeling about a fresh snowfall around the holidays:
