Esopus CD #2: Missed Connections

02_32.jpg

For our second CD invitational, we asked 11 musician-couples—people who have fused not only creatively but romantically—to choose a “Missed Connections” ad from the internet site Craig’s List and use it as inspiration for a song. The site’s “Missed Connections” features postings either by singles who are seeking to contact someone they’ve had a brief encounter with or by people who are mourning— or sometimes cursing—a lost love.

Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker cofounded the Duluth, MN–based band Low in 1993 with John Nichols. The trio, considered forerunners of “slowcore,” has released a number of well-regarded albums since, including Long Division, Secret Name, Things We Lost in the Fire, and C'mon.
