Low have something of a reputation as being the Mormon slo-core band, but they're not the only softly narcotic group of recent vintage with connections to that faith. Based around the husband and wife team of Aaron and Adrienne Snow, who met at Brigham Young University in 1994 and moved to Connecticut later in the decade, Landing is a fine, generally instrumental group whose music betrays open influences from such fine bands as the Cure, Slowdive and any number of dreamy space/post-rock bands of the '90s. Besides keyboardist Adrienne and guitarist Aaron, who originally formed the group as a duo called May Landing, there's also bassist Dick Baldwin, focus of wry bemusement on the group's own website and drummer Daron Gardner. After an initial cassette, Landing first came to the attention of American fans of the field via the Centrefuge EP, a beautiful five-song collection showcasing long and short songs both, following that up with a series of tour-only tapes and compilation appearances. 2001 brought two new releases -- its full debut album Circuit and a six-song EP Oceanless.
