Low and Retribution Gospel Choir play in the UK next week. In advance of a full interview on the Quietus next week, frontman Alan Sparhawk spoke to Dale Berning about his thirteen favourite albums


Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
When we first started the band and were touring, that was one album we’d listen to all the time. I just remember having these long conversations about how awesome it is, “Everytime I put it on there’s something new”… The typical cliche of an indie band driving around the States in the middle of the 90s listening to Pet Sounds going “Oh isn’t this awesome? We should have trumpets on our next record.” And that’s exactly what everyone else was doing.
