The Low Anthem Plays Tonight at Central Presbyterian Church
Imagine recording an album in an abandoned factory. Or really, any abandoned building with some kind of atmosphere to it that would undoubtedly have an effect your album’s sound.
Word is that Rhode Island quartet The Low Anthem recorded their latest release, called Smart Flesh, in an abandoned pasta sauce factory. As the evenings arrived, the building became colder…and more eerie. A most appropriate ambiance.
This album, the follow-up to Oh My God, Charlie Darwin (2009), is a lo-fi piece that wanders more toward the folk and country realm, very haunted, hushed, and stripped down. Within its arrangements, you’ll find a saw, a mouth harp and other intriguing musical accoutrements creating an incredibly fascinating and strangely beautiful atmosphere.
Don’t miss The Low Anthem when they play tonight at Central Presbyterian Church, located at 200 E. 8th St. The show begins at 8 p.m. This is the perfect venue to experience this performance. Highly recommended.
