Weavers of majestic yet understated indie pop Low have put together a rather glorious remix of The Crookes’ ‘Echolalia’, premiering via The Onion’s AV Club. “It’s a great tune,” said Alan Sparhawk of Low, “we figured we had to go somewhere completely different to do it justice.” ‘Echolalia’ is featured on The Crookes’ third and latest full-length, Soapbox, released earlier this year on fierce panda records. The Sheffield quartet are currently on tour in the midst of their third visit to the U.S. of 2014, wrapping in New York next week at the annual CMJ Music Marathon.
The Crookes perform Tuesday, October 21 at Rough Trade for the “Music is GREAT/Ben Sherman” showcase (11pm) and hit Fontana’s, Wednesday, October 22 in the afternoon, at the Pirate Radio CMJ party (2:45pm).
Following that comes a UK tour in support of forthcoming single ‘Howl’ / ‘When You’re Fragile’, out Monday 24th November on fierce panda. Dates as follows:
