Sometimes it takes a while for me to wade through label hype about a band and give them a chance. New York's The Low Anthem has been the latest to win me over. I've been listening to their album Oh My God, Charlie Darwin! this afternoon and you could "knock me over with a feather."
From the folky plaintive tenderness of "Charlie Darwin" and "To Ohio" to the bluesy stomps of "The Horizon Is A Beltway" and "Home I'll Never Be" the album is great.
They will be playing the Granada on October 28 with Blind Pilot. I for one will check them out.
