Consider it a preview for his show with Om tomorrow night at the
Independent, and a chance to get up close and personal with the makings of his
mind-boggling sound-bending tricks. (True story: I once stood by while Lowe politely explained to a fan after a show that he'd just been whistling, not playing a field recording from inside an aviary.)
While you're at it, check out some of his releases, beginning with this year's spacious Eclipses, released on Thrill Jockey under his non-vegetal name, and going back as far as his lightly occult Kranky debut, The Psychic Nature of Being. Maybe you can swap an LP for that homemade mustache wax you've been working on. It's a new economy out there.
