Your Voice is Not Enough is presented with this great tribute to Low through the voice of Lorenzen. The idea came from a conversation between Tom Wasluck (Planning for Burial) and The Flenser where both were fascinated by the nuanced beauty in the discography of Low. What began as a discussion about ranking her favorite albums ended up blossoming into a collective effort that led to the gathering of a diverse group of artists and friends from flenser.

Unfortunately the compilation took shape before the death of Mimi Parker and in celebration of the impact her participation had on the world of music, we released and dedicated this album in her honor.
