Low's Alan Sparhawk brings a lot of dark magic to Retribution Gospel Choir's full-length debut. In reworking "Breaker," Low's single from the 2007 hit Drums and Guns, Sparhawk and Co. pass the song through a meat grinder. Gone are the sparse handclaps—the sound now is thick with rumbling guitars and It-Came-From-The-'90s rock 'n' roll. Their tour EPs and other tracks streaming from producer Matt Kozalek's Caldo Verde Records back it up: For a night of dirty rock and grunge reminiscences from a Minnesota visionary, church is the Turf Club, and you're there for the Retribution Gospel Choir. With His Mischief.
