Imagine Lambchop's Kurt Wagner fronting the Jesus & Mary Chain and you'll have a pretty decent point of entry into the work of The Low Lows. The Athens, Georgia band combines an organic (albeit art-damaged) brand of avant-Americana with the fuzzy, reverb-drenched, sonic-canyon-spelunking sound of the shoegazer set. On their second album (and first for Misra), Shining Violence, the results are unfailingly atmospheric and consistently evocative.
