What we're listening to...

Oh My God, Charlie Darwin - The Low Anthem

I highly recommend this album, particularly the opening track, simply titled "Charlie Darwin." There are a couple rambunctious rockers on this record, which are great by the way, but the majority of the songs here are quietly yearning acoustic numbers. Track #3, "Ticket Taker," sounds something like Mark Kozelek's work on Songs for a Blue Guitar; a deceptively simple guitar arrangement coupled with literate, heartbreaking lyrics. You're likely to see Oh My God, Charlie Darwin on more than a few Best of 2009 lists.

Find it in the catalog!
