Alan Sparhawk and Steve Garrington (Low’s frontman and bassist, respectively) and drummer Eric Pollard make up Retribution Gospel Choir. A break from the slowcore minimalism of Low, RGC’s sound is anthemic, loud and rocking. Retribution Gospel Choir’s amazing second album, 2, is due January 26 on Sub Pop. Download single “Hide It Away” below, and catch the Duluth, Minn., band on tour in the U.S. and Europe through April.
