Smart Flesh

The Low Anthem @ Ottobar 08/15/09, originally uploaded by Ash Crowe.

My pre-order of The Low Anthem’s new album Smart Flesh arrived by mail on Friday and it is, simply, stunning. The music is gorgeous and richly layered and surprising and heartbreaking and all other things I’ve come to expect from The Low Anthem. The packaging for the CD is as beautiful as the album: letter pressed everything. It creates a wonderfully tactile element that just adds to the music.
Buy it here (spend the few extra bucks for the Deluxe CD or the vinyl to get the letter-pressed version). And if you don’t know about the band yet, check out the NY Times article
