They’ll never wake us in time

 

I’ve been hooked on Low again lately and reconsidering one of my favorite songs. “July” is such a perfect apotheosis of Low’s sound from the 90s, the guitar/bass/drums drifting into the backdrop as the vocal melodies take front and center, accompanied by an antiquated violin sample and a xylophone. This song always reminds me of old relationships past. That breakdown near the middle where Alan & Mimi just list off the months breaks my heart. Time gets away from us, doesn’t it?
