The Low Anthem In Concert (Robin Hilton, 2/24/11, NPR)

The Low Anthem makes music that's perfect for reflective spaces. The band recorded the rustic mix of blues, folk and hymns on its previous album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, in an empty cabin. The group's follow-up, Smart Flesh, was recorded in a dilapidated pasta-sauce factory in Rhode Island. So it's no surprise that The Low Anthem chose a 100-year-old synagogue in Washington, D.C., as the site for a live performance. This concert was recorded live at the historic 6th and I Synagogue.

The Low Anthem formed in Rhode Island in 2006 and now features Ben Knox Miller, Jeff Prystowsky, Jocie Adams and Mat Davidson. The group self-released its debut, What the Crow Brings, in 2007, and followed it with Oh My God, Charlie Darwin less than a year later.
