Lee and I went to the Langhorne Slim concert last night. If you haven’t heard Slim, you’ll want to check out his infectious brand of alternative honky tonk. But, the highlight of the evening for me was discovering the Low Anthem, a trio of multi-instrumentalists from Rhode Island. Their latest album is called “Oh My God, Charlie Darwin”, which seems to be a brilliantly-named melodic masterpiece.
We couldn’t decide whether the “Charlie Darwin” song was pro or anti evolution, or whether or not that even matters. Ultimately, the song kicks ass, so if it turns out to be a creationist manifesto, we’ll still have to admit that the song is awesome.
Please check out this homemade video of Low Anthem’s title track and tell me what you think…
