With its dreamy, rustic take on the idea of Americana, the Low Anthem's 2011 album builds on the promise of the group's universally praised 2008 debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. The group self-produced Smart Flesh, bringing in Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk, M. Ward) to mix the Pasta Sauce sessions and Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins, April Smith) to engineer. Instrumentation included jaw harp, musical saw, stylophone, oversized drum kits, and three antique pump organs that the band had found and restored. The exquisitely crafted, achingly spare arrangements at times recall the early recordings of Leonard Cohen, and Miller's voice, on a track like "Burn," displays a similarly gruff yet plaintive timbre. The deeply melancholic mood the group favors, starting with a spellbindingly slow-motion rendering of George Carter's 1920's era "Ghost Woman Blues," will appeal to fans of the backwoods musings of Bon Iver or the lovelorn southern balladry of the Avett Brothers.
