The Low Rollers have their own brand of fuzzed-out folk rock. Think garage rock, bar rock, cowpunk… like this!

Or this!

“When I was in high school, I had a friend who turned me on to Mark Knofler’s soundtrack for Local Hero. I really liked how it blended Scottish music with rock music, and how the music complimented the tone of the film.”


“Here’s the music for the main theme.”

“I have been reading a Beatles biography (my all time faves), so I have been going back and listening to early Beatles stuff lately. For example, I listened to this.”


“Super low-fi, but interesting listen. Also, I have been re-listening to the classic Rolling Stones albums of the 70s and 80s. I think Emotional Rescue is an underrated gem. For example…”

“I listen to a wide range of music. I just happen to be listening to Beatles/Stones this week, getting back to my roots.”
