Jeremy / HI54LOFI Instead of working on getting my own washboard abs, I just listen to The Washboard Abs while eating ice cream from the tub. I have no regrets about this life choice. Favorite track: Never Finds You.

released August 17, 2018

A complex indie-pop album, steeped in jazz and art-pop influences, Lowlight Visions confronts the declining health of a partner and the possibility of loss.

"Lowlight Visions might just be the most impressive album The Washboard Abs have made...it’s a brave artist who takes the very personal worry and suffering and uses it to build something that’s this complex and multifaceted, vulnerable but not hopeless, forgoing nihilistic dejection in favour of a strange kind of love, an appreciation of what stands to be lost." - Various Small Flames

"Lost in the chiming of guitars and the delicate mellotron, vibraphone, and synthesizer ornamentations adorning its brittle edges, you might find the sweet solace that’s been eluding you." - Thrdcoast

"An expansive, cinematic album that uses each element in the right proportion and at the right time." - Minimum Rock + Roll

"like a broken hearted kiss on the cheek. Lovely stuff. Just lovely." - American Pancake

"a dreamy indie rock excursion down paths blazed by Archer Prewitt and Sam Prekop and Prewitt-and-Prekop bands (like, uh, the Sea and Cake) and decidedly non-Prewitt-and-Prekop bands like Real Estate and even non-electronic and pretty Radiohead. It wouldn’t surprise me if it came out that the Washboard Abs played instruments made out of clouds instead of conventional instrument material." - Cassette Gods

"The landscape abruptly changes from a common mountain range to a vast fence of thin, red ribbon for miles." - Small Albums

“Lowlight Visions is an album that has love in its truest form bursting from every single seam and you can hear it in every second of it...one of the best albums of 2018." - The Trail
