mp3: The Low Anthem – Charlie Darwin

The Low Anthem are hands down the best new folk/Americana band about. Thanks to End Of The Road label for this one. They’re a boy-girl-boy outfit from Boston who seem pretty young but there’s a real precision and maturity to their songs which would make you think otherwise. I sat next to female member Jocie’s mum and brother and they were telling me that the pedal powered organ that Jeff was playing was found in the deep South and used to belong to an old lady’s ‘help’. Lead song ‘Charlie Darwin’ is a perfect song. ‘Ticket Taker’ is sublime too. Front man Ben’s voice is exceptional, gong from high notes to throaty growl seamlessly. The band play The End Of The Road Festival in the UK this September.

For Fans Of: Bonnie Prince Billy, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Pete Seger.

Welcome to a new feature where I share with you what’s going to be soundtracking my weekend. The general theme which is bound to change a little is: Friday – upbeat dancey, Saturday – upbeat indie, Sunday – shhh.

So here we go, just for kicks:

Friday

Passion Pit – Sleepyhead

An indie/dance anthem in the making courtesy of Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Passion Pit. Taken from their excellent ‘Chunk Of Change EP’.
Catch them live at The Great Escape.

Saturday

Napoleon IIIrd – Zebra

Self made dictator with a knack for a great tune and a witty lyric. Poor zebras though!
Taken from the Hideki Yukawa EP which was out on Monday.
See him live in Brick Lane next Thursday.
I have 3 tickets available for this gig so get in touch.

Sunday

The Low Anthem – Ticket Taker

A special bit of Americana here from one of my favourite new bands. This is taken from their limited edition Oh My God Charlie Darwin single. Makes me picture a sun drenched American landscape and dried up oil fields…
‘I keep a stock of weapons should society collapse’.

Enjoy and please feel free to leave some comments on the tracks…
