iTunes Review

Providence, Rhode Island’s Low Anthem record sparse, luminous Americana-tinged music that’s as lonesome in its way as Dolorean, Pale Horse and Rider and many other groups who cherish the sound of simple bands playing direct music. LA’s third album was recorded at a studio in Providence and at a vacant pasta sauce factory in Central Falls, RI, which gives the album a natural reverb and gave the band enough space to stretch out and let their natural chemistry dictate the flow. George Carter’s “Ghost Woman Blues” is a spare opener that allows the music to build to the distorted heights of “Boeing 737” before settling into the haunting harmonies of “Love and Altar” and the soothing, droning harmonium work of “Matter of Time.” “Hey, All You Hippies!” plays like a loose-ended barn jam on traditional country music with all instruments and vocalists on deck. “I’ll Take Out Your Ashes” returns to rustic country, with banjos ticking away like time. The Deluxe Version includes four additional tracks  of solid caliber, and a video for “Ghost Woman Blues.”

Seems interesting

First review!!!!!!
I've always been a fan of the Low Anthem, since what the crow brings came out. But this one seems a little different, certainly not the same style as that first album was back in 2007. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of it, but I'm still confident that it's going to be great. Everything they touch turns to gold, and I don't really see how they could go wrong. Keep it up Low Anthem.

They found their sound

I really like this band and this is now their best album. In fact, this feels more like an album than previous releases. There is a consistency to their sound that previous albums lacked. I'll be listening to this one for a long time.

Excellent Effort

Been a fan now for about 2 years, ever since I saw them on Letterman. There is a tone to these songs that meshes wonderfully from song to song. Key songs, for me, are "Matter of Time", "Apothecary Love", and "Boeing 737". Definitely pick this up people. It's a fine album.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Low Anthem's unique brand of Americana makes room for gospel, folk, and blues, a blend that began taking shape in their hometown of Providence, RI. Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky -- both students at Brown University, as well as late-night DJs at the school's radio station -- formed the Low Anthem in 2006, drawing upon their background as classical composers to help mold the group's eclectic music. Jocie Adams joined one year later, and the group began widening its arsenal of instruments...
