The third album from The Washboard Abs finds them reinventing themselves yet again. After the bedroom-folk of Have U Scanned Ur Club Card? and the short, full-band bursts of Recurring Chasms, Lowlight Visions is both a continuation of their pop prowess and a revelation: a fully-realized vision by a band at the height of its powers.

The full-length debut from Oakland duo, Upside Drown. Taking retro pop and bringing it into the metaphysical—imagery of magic and nature disguised as catchy love songs, fairytales and mythology as piano ballads. Nine songs too good to easily fit in your hands (bigger than that).
