Emmylou Harris & the Low Anthem
The Low Anthem opened for, and performed with (see above), Emmylou Harris at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ on November 13th. A set of pictures from that show is in this post. And:
On February 22, The Low Anthem will release Smart Flesh, the self-produced follow up to their critically lauded 2009 release Oh My God, Charlie Darwin on Nonesuch. The majority of Smart Flesh's eleven tracks were recorded in a cavernous, vacant pasta sauce factory in Central Falls, RI. Additional tracking was done in a Providence garage, dubbed the "gator pit." Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk) mixed the record in Omaha with additional mixing by engineer Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins) in New York. The Low Anthem is four multi-instrumentalists - Ben Knox Miller, Jeff Prystowsky, Jocie Adams, and newest member Mat Davidson.The Low Anthem kick off a tour with Carolina Chocolate Drops on December 4th, and return to NYC to play their own show at Lincoln Center on January 13th (tickets). The NYC show is part of the 2011 "American Songbook" season at Lincoln Center which Carolina Chocolate Drops also play, but on February 2nd.
