Introducing - The Low Anthem

Another day another folky rock band, this time it's the Low Anthem, a three piece hailing from Providence, Rhode Island (no, me neither). Steve Lamacq recently called the band "this year's Fleet Foxes," now I am not sure if they will quite live up to that billing, but they are pretty damn good. This their 3rd album 'Oh My God, Charlie Darwin', reminds me a bit of the Felice Brothers and Dr Dog, so if you like your Americana/folk music with a pinch of rockiness, then this may be right up your proverbial street.
The band recently did a session for wxpn, which you can listen to here. I have ripped a copy if you want to download it, here. If that's not enough Low Anthem to quench your thirst, then you can also download two zips of some of their live shows here.
