Retribution Gospel Choir w/ Nels Cline
It was a great night for side projects when Low side project Retribution Gospel Choir brought their tour to NYC for a show at Knitting Factory on February 11 with Tim Berne, Jim Black, and Nels Cline's appropriately titled BB&C and The War on Drugs side project Nightlands (led by TWOD bassist Dave Hartley). They just released their two-track full length album, 3, and one of those, "Seven," which features Nels Cline on the record, and he also came out to play it with them that night (audio recording of that song via NYC Taper is below). And in addition to the new album songs, they made time for older tracks as well.

new album in 2k10? - don't sweat it!
Retribution Gospel Choir are Low's Alan Sparhawk, Low bassist Steve Garrington, and Eric Pollard on drums & co-vox. Last night (12/15), they played Mercury Lounge in NYC. Did anyone catch the show?
In 2010 (January 26th to be exact), the band will put out their second album, titled 2, on Sub Pop. Check a track from that album, "Hide It Away", above. Their self-titled debut was released in 2008 on Mark Kozelek's Caldo Verde Records.
