AFTER TWO barely noticed albums in the mid-noughties, Rhode Island folk-rock/indie-folk trio The Low Anthem struck creative gold with 2009’s Oh My God, Charlie Darwin.To hold their own and not be outdone by the considerable shadow cast by Fleet Foxes’ magical debut was some achievement, as was the band’s ability to balance the rabble rousing, beer’n’brawling side of folk, with the genre’s sensitive, introspective, side, showing in the process, an emphatic understanding and love for the heritage of this Hiberno-British-American strain of music.
FANS OF AMERICANA are in for a treat at the Roisin Dubh with Rhode Island band The Low Athem playing at the intimate venue on Saturday week, June 16. Formed in 1006 by Brown University students and part-time DJs Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky, the band made their mark with their 2007 debut album What the Crow Brings. Drawing on their background in classical music, they widened their instruments and sound to include everything from WWI- era pump organs to crotales (a form of antique cymbal). With the addition of new member Jocie Adamas in 2007, the band began 2008 in remote Block Island off the coast of New England.
