  • Credits
    ProducerMary Lorson; Billy Cote

    Saint Low includes: Mary Lorson (vocals, guitar, keyboards).
    Recorded at Electric Wilburland Studio, Newfield, New York in January & March 2000.
    Personnel: Billy Cot (guitar, sampler); Richie Stearns (banjo); Hank Roberts (cello); Mary Lorson (piano, organ, drums).
    Recording information: At Home (01/2000-03/2000); Electric Wilburland, Newfield, NY (01/2000-03/2000).
    The combination of Mary Lorson's sultry vocals and the moody backing of Michael Stark's organ and Joe Myer's violin make for some effective modern torch songs. While the lyrics occasionally border on self-pity, they are kept afloat by a consistently satisfying delivery. This is a winning, atmospheric album for late night listening. ~ Tim Sheridan

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (8/00, p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...With a penchant for country balladry, her voice ranges from a dark groan to perfect clarity, and is a highlight throughout..."
    CMJ (7/24/00, p.24) - "...Mary Larson's growth as a songwriter emulates the natural growth of a rose - gradual, yet ultimately majestic..."
    Melody Maker (7/11/00, p.49) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This rules....will make your life better if you're looking for something that engages more than your sphincter muscle, come on in."
    Mojo (Publisher) (8/00, p.99) - "...The patron saint of sadness....Songs unfold at their own languid pace...and, like the best songwriters, Larson renders messy complexities simple but never banal. Stealthily wonderful."
    NME (Magazine) (8/5/00, p.29) - 8 out of 10 - "...Let this album pour itself into your soul. Saint Low are a redemption."
