    This is the original CD version of A New Low. If you purchase this on bandcamp, you will also get to download the 24-bit extended version with one extra track.

    Produced in collaboration with Pete Weiss of Verdant Studio, recorded at Armory Sound, Dimension Sound Studios and Milk Row Cemetery, with art work by Lisa Deupree; songs by some of our favorite artists, including Brian Eno, Latin Playboys and Dock Boggs. Of course some Morphine chestnuts by Mr. Sandman, done in our own fashion.

    Our auxiliary drummer Jeff Allison played on two tracks and produced the opening Wind Up Radio. And our dear friend, Malian musician Boubacar Diabaté sings on an alternate version of the track Renouveau/Daman N’Diaye found on the bandcamp extended 24-bit download version; his voice is sampled for the CD version.

    We are our own worst critics, and we are really very happy with the way this thing turned out. Really, REALLY happy. We hope you enjoy our addition to the low rock universe.

A mash-up of 1) our instrumental version of "Renouveau'" by Amadou Ballaké Et Les 5 Consuls (from "Bambara Mystic Soul - The Raw Sound Of Burkina Faso 1974-1979" on Afro Soul Systems); and 2) Daman N'Diaye, which our Malian friend and musician Boubacar Diabaté recognized as the same song. You can hear Bouba's voice sampled throughout this version. (This extended release also includes his full vocal performance on the song at the end of the album.)
