Low – “When I Go Deaf” from The Great Destroyer (2005)

The principle of this song is simple: slow, contemplative intro followed by sudden and triumphant loudness.

But like all the best tunes, it affects beyond its simple form. The harmonies are gorgeous. The latter guitar tone is shuddering.  And in the right context, with the right headphones, it takes place right inside your head.

Buy it here, if you want

  1. Well done. This has been my “fall” song this year.

    Those headphones on the right, the Grado SR60s. Really great cans and not too expensive.

    Yeah, I’ve heard really good things about Grado. I just picked up some Sennheiser HD202s. I’m very impressed for under $20.
