The Low Anthem

On monday night, I had the pleasure of going to see a band called The Low Anthem at the belcourt (my favorite venue). I had seen them live when they opened for Lisa Hannigan last year as well and I don't think I've ever enjoyed seeing a band play as much as I enjoy seeing them.
They have a very pure and yet haunting sound that I can't quite put my finger on. On their most recent album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, they combine folk and blues arrangements with the elegance of chamber music and the fervor of gospel.
