The Low Anthem take out Charlie Darwin; tonight at the Bowery Ballroom

Amongst their many happenings, Rhode Island-based trio The Low Anthem played Bonnaroo over the weekend in support of their striking Nonesuch Records debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. The band’s independent release now has an updated track sequence and packaging for its Nonesuch release, with remastering by Gateway’s Bob Ludwig. Tonight, the band play a headlining gig at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom (Tickets are $13/$15 dos). Check out the band’s recent interviews and performances on the New York Times Popcast and Baeble.

Oh My God, Charlie Darwin was co-produced by The Low Anthem and Jesse Lauter. The band, Lauter, and several good friends went to Block Island, RI, for ten cold days in January 2008. They brought recording equipment along on the ferry ride and made the album in an empty summer cabin. Among the 27 instruments on the record are zither, pump organ, Tibetan singing bowl, and an oil drum.
