This weekend Gloss Records is celebrating their first birthday. The Milwaukee-based record label is hosting a three day party festival to honor the big day. Headlining Saturday (at Mad Planet) is none other than Milwaukee indie-rockers Soul Low. No stranger to the growing music community, the (incredibly busy) touring quartet has a well-established fan based and recently released an acoustic series, "Unplugged".
'Sitting by the Fire' is the second song on the WMSE broadcast. The stripped song contrasts the Uneasy EP version. With softer beats and melodies, the tune manages to still showcases the bands distinct sound. For the special series, Soul Low recruited string and bold brass accompaniments. Layering their sound and creating complex arrangements with dynamic tones. The overall production is raw and illustrative of their works and approach. While this song is one of their more popular pieces, make sure to check out the entire series for a well produced and executed recording.
Below is the complete release (with new songs). See the dudes (in person) this weekend!
