DOWNLOAD: The Low Anthem - To Ohio + The Horizon Is A Beltway
The Low Anthem are from Providence, which is neither Boston, Philly, or New York and thus often gets remembered for weird things like the Load scene and Lightning Bolt and big bands that met there but eventually moved elsewhere like the Talking Heads. But The Low Anthem aren't very weird, they play bi-polar Americana that was clearly boiled down from copious spins of Tom Waits and Gram Parsons and they're just as memorable for it. Split over their new record Oh My God, Charlie Darwin are two distinct halves: the fervent midnight jug music of songs like "The Horizon Is A Beltway" and the gentler pre-dawn lullabies that almost feel apologetic sandwiched next to such tomfoolery. "To Ohio" is one of those songs and its harmonies offer some of the glassy-eyed optimism I always felt was missing from Iron & Wine. Dig into the music below, and if you live around New England or eastern Canada you can catch the band are slugging it out on stages with Rachael Yamagata, including a sold-out stop tonight at New York's Bowery Ballroom. Full dates are after the tunes.
