Quick, name an actor who should star in a video by Minnesota's most beautiful, saddest trio! You cheated and looked at the headline, didn't you? Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive of the "Try To Sleep" clip, which features John Stamos in some sort of noir green-screen nightmare. You might recognize Mr. Stamos from his role in the Beach Boys' "Kokomo" video, and you might recognize Low for the two members who are also in Retribution Gospel Choir--who covered "Kokomo" for A.V. Undercover last year. Six degrees of John Stamos!
While we're here, I'll inject a personal note and say that Low is one of my favorite bands of all time, and that their new album C'Mon came out today. You can download it over at Amazon for $3.99, or if you buy it at an indie record store, you'll get a bonus disc featuring acoustic versions of a bunch of the album's tracks. Respect!
