The Low Anthem
Rhode Island-based trio The Low Anthem have mapped out their summer touring schedule in support of their Nonesuch Records debut Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, out this week.

With three performances in three days at the recent Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this past weekend and a headlining gig at New York City's Bowery Ballroom on June 15, The Low Anthem have set the stage for an impressive Summer 2009.

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. The Low Anthem pays homage to two heroes with the record's only cover, a one-take rendition of "Home I'll Never Be," with words by Jack Kerouac and music by Tom Waits.
