The Low Anthem's markedly pleasant tunes contain some of the sweetest sounds in modern Americana. The band's music features husky vocals, poetic lyrics, rich harmonies, even some heavy blues guitar. In concert, the group has been known to forgo PA systems and amplification in order to blend with its surroundings.

Hear three songs from the Rhode Island foursome recorded live at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center, as well as an interview with founding members Ben Knox Miller and Jeffrey Prystowsky.
