Caren Explains The Low Anthem

Folk Festival 50 performers, The Low Anthem, drop an album today called "Oh My God, Charlie Darwin"... which I always want to write as "Oh-my-GAWD, Charlie Darwin!!" for no apparent reason. Maybe because I spent too much time in the South.

The Phoenix up here in New England likes it.
So does Paste magazine down in Atlanta.

By the way, have you contributed to Save Paste yet? You get over 150 mp3s with your donation, no matter the amount. Plus, you help my friends keep their jobs and then the Paste kids can go to camp. Everybody wins.
