The Low Anthem On Mountain Stage (NPR, 4/20/11)

For the making of Smart Flesh, the latest from Rhode Island indie-folk band The Low Anthem, the four members spent three winter month recording in an abandoned pasta sauce factory, capitalizing on its resonant, cavernous sounds. In their second appearance on Mountain Stage, the band recreates the sounds of Smart Flesh, drawing from a variety of musical styles and an even greater variety of instruments; they switch back and forth between 11 instruments during their five-song Mountain Stage set, including World War II-era pump organ, dulcimer, clarinet, trumpet, fiddle and musical saw.
