Smart Flesh (Extras). The Low Anthem released an excellent second album in 2009 "Oh My God, Charlie Darwin", which charmed me to no end, bringing a curious but intruiging mix of Americana-rooted music along with some other hard to classify more upbeat music. Quirky but oh so good. Now comes the band's 3rd album. Smart Flesh" (11 tracks; 46 mi. continues the band's exploration of Americana music, and then some. The opener "Ghost Woman Blues" (don't let the blues reference fool you) sets the table for the album

While scoping out locations for their third album, the Low Anthem stumbled across a vacant pasta sauce factory in Central Falls, RI. For a band whose instruments include WWII-era pump organs and other antique items, the factory - with its label-strewn floors, big empty spaces, and semi-crumbling appearance - must’ve felt like home. And it was home, at least for the three winter months in which the Low Anthem took up temporary residence inside the place, recording the bulk of their third album with Charlie Darwin producer Jesse Lauter
After the success of the Low Anthem’s previous album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, which brought them critical acclaim and a new audience, we might have expected the Rhode Island band to produce something buoyant, something full of hope and high spirits. But no. Here is an album obsessed with death. We’re all going to die, the band appear to be telling us, and to illustrate their point, they allow virtually every note they play to die slowly in front of our ears. Much of the album was recorded in a disused pasta factory, and this huge empty space defines the album’s sound.
