Low's slow-burn appeal has certainly not gone unnoticed; in fact, Robert Plant covered two of the band's tracks on 2010's Band of Joy. With C'mon, their ninth full-length, the Minnesotans ease into their slowcore seduction as comfortably as a goose down comforter on a Duluth winter day. Recognizing their role as somber soothers, they add hints of jangling banjo on "Witches" and lap steel drones on "Done" and "Nothing But Heart" to help amplify the sleepy, sensual vibe -- even when they're feeling a tad cynical: "All you guys out there trying to act like Al Green, you all are weak."
