After 21 years, Low still found a way to take a signature sound and make another statement in 2013. At a highly anticipated Rock the Garden performance in Minneapolis, Al Sparhawk’s guitar, Steve Garrington’s bass and Mimi’s Sparhawk’s drums issued a slow moving, 27-minute, one-song set, ending with remarks opposing unmanned military technology. Their “Drone, Not Drones” manifesto made waves with hipsters around the globe, some in support of artistic protest, some bored with it, some angered by it. Either way, it says a lot for a band known for sublime, quiet testimony.
