About Fell to Low:
Fell to Low was formed in 2009, in the sleepy town of Ojai, California, slowly honing their sound, creating angular ’90s indiethat took cues from bands like Unwound, June Of 44, and Slint. Following the release of two successful 10″ EPs and two 7″ releases, Low in the Dust is the band’s debut full-length, and is a perfectly crafted record: every guitar note, every drum hit, every vocal howl has been painstakingly thought out and performed. Side A features four tracks that are at times heavy and technical, bringing to mind the more raucous moments of Drive Like Jehu with Side B featuring two tracks clocking in at over 14 minutes each with a minimalist repetition made familiar by bands like Shellac. The record was mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac at Chicago Mastering to give it the perfect balance of cleanliness and grit, and is a testament to a band not willing to sacrifice quality over quantity in their output.
Fell to Low has confirmed an intense West Coast tour of the U.S. and Canada to begin less than a week following the release of Low in the Dust, with the final venue details to be announced in the coming days.
