Low release new video for “Plastic Cup” (playing World Cafe Live 6/21)
Slowcore pioneers Low have just released a new video for the track “Plastic Cup”, off their most recent, Jeff Tweedy produced album, The Invisible Way, which is currently out via Sub Pop. The black and white, Ryley Fogg-directed video features the band decked out in black-tie formal wear, playing instruments that appear to be covered entirely in tin-foil. Did I mention the floating glitter everywhere? If that somehow wasn’t enough, in addition to the band, the video also stars a group of guys in strange hoods passing around what looks like a crystal ball…and doing some other strange things, too. Despite its avante-garde aesthetic, the video does hone in on a conceivable plot towards the end (kind of). Low will be making a stop in Philly, on June 21st, at World Cafe Live for a show with Mike Doughty. Tickets and information can be found here, and watch the “Plastic Cup” video below.
