90's Hit Parade #90

Low - Hey Chicago

Great summer songs are easy to come by. Great winter songs are far more rare. And Low are definitely a winter band (they're one of the few rock bands to have recorded a Christmas album). When they sing about Chicago, is there any doubt that they're picturing it covered in a blanket of snow? "Hey Chicago," the final song on they're best record, has a pretty vocal melody that reveals itself gradually, rewarding patient listening. Low's trademark slow and quiet sound was unusual, but they still fit right into the 90's indie rock sound.
