Full of Brit Pop beans, Young Aviators’ debut album Self Help was released through the (worth keeping an eye on) label Electric Honey on Monday.

This is Low’s new video for ‘Make It Stop’ which will appear on their 10th studio album (!) The Invisible Way - produced byWilco’s Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco’s studio in Chicago.
Directed by Phillip Harder (Low’s ‘Words’, ‘Shame’, ‘Over The Ocean’, ‘Canada’) and featuring stop-motion animation from Britta Johnson (Fleet Foxes ‘White Winter Hymnal’), this video’s release marks the beginning of their tour. They’ll be covering the UK (dates below), as well as Solid Sound and Pitchfork festivals abroad.
