incidental music spot of the day

Low by Cracker over some of the player background info sequences on Sky Sports' coverage of the final round of the Tour Championship. Cracker's 1993 album Kerosene Hat, on which Low appears (Get Off This is the other famous-ish song on it) is a bit of a forgotten 90s classic. Here's the official video for Low, starring the lovely Gina Gershon, and here's a live rendition from the Conan O'Brien show.

If you liked those, allow me to direct you to the ludicrously crunchy and catchy Teen Angst from their self-titled 1992 debut album. If the YouTube comments are to be believed the video was filmed on the Virginia ranch owned by the late Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, and he puts in a few brief appearances in the video zooming past on a motorbike, the video pre-dating by four years or so the drug-related mishap that put paid to any further motorcycle shenanigans.
