Spill Magazine Gives AgitPop 4/5

The energy is contagious, making this brilliant album a striking, singable, and most of all optimistic offering about affecting change for the better. Previously, the band had been skeptical of collaborating with large record companies, such as Warner Music Canada. However, it’s demonstrated in Agitpop to have been a very successful move for Lowest Of The Low. Agitpop ranks right up there with Shakespeare My Butt… which says much of the effort and passion put into this album by all involved. Hawkins spoke to that in our recent interview.

Hawkins and multi-instrumentalist Lawrence Nichols sat down recently to discuss the continuing relevance of the Low, as they're affectionately known, before the band’s pair of exclusive performances at the Dakota Tavern for purchasers of the Low’s just-released vinyl box set Shakespeare My Box! — a cheeky nod to its debut album — which includes every song, save a cover or two, the band ever recorded.

Agit Pop Release Party Review

The new material is wholly their sound, still full of activism, boldness and the gritty love of those in need that their band name speaks to, with a well done accompanying video display that weaves historic civil rights march footage with the contemporary and the local, as seen as a backdrop on “The Barricade”.
