Duluth, Minn., band Low released its ninth album, “C’mon,” this week, and with it comes a video for the track “Try To Sleep” starring … Uncle Jesse from “Full House”? But lest you think John Stamos has signed on for a simple redux of his last big video appearance — that would be the Beach Boys’ “Kokomo,”of course — this one’s a vastly different affair: moody and cinematic without a pina colada in sight. Stamos, calling Low “one of my favorite indie bands,” came to the project via his friend, “C’mon” producer Matt Beckley.
Low’s profile has risen in the recent past thanks to a famous fan in the form of Robert Plant, who covered two songs from their 2005 album “The Great Destroyer” on his 2010 record “Band Of Joy.”He won a Grammy for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance for his version of Low’s “Silver Rider”and has sung the band’s praises in interviews.
Low’s spring tour includes stops at First Unitarian Church on April 25 and Bowery Ballroom on April 27.
