    The Low Anthem's "Boeing 737" Video Premieres on SPIN.com

    The official music video for The Low Anthem's "Boeing 737," off the band's latest Nonesuch release, Smart Flesh, has just premiered on SPIN. In the video, the band goes "1800s retro," says SPIN's Dan Jackson, "as members of an oddball circus, who battle a group of high-wire walkers. It's totally weird yet totally poignant." Check it out for yourself at spin.com.

    The new video was directed by End of the Road Pictures, which created the beautiful animated video for "Charlie Darwin," off The Low Anthem's previous album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. You can watch that video on the Nonesuch Records YouTube channel and at nonesuch.com/media.

    As noted earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, The Low Anthem is wrapping up its European tour, with support from The Head and the Heart, at shows in Manchester tonight, Dublin on Sunday, and a sold-out tour closer at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on Monday. The band will return to the United States next week for a spring and summer tour that includes headline shows (like the newly added date at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg) and dates with Iron & Wine and Mumford & Sons. Tickets are on sale now for all the US tour dates. For more information and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    "The Low Anthem, from Providence, do very little by convention," says the Australian in a new feature on the band and the new album. "Their atmospheric, rootsy music draws on a number of American folk traditions, from gospel to blues and country, but through unorthodox instrumentation ... and an equally original approach to recording, the band has carved a niche for itself. It's music that is hard to define, but wouldn't be too uncomfortable sitting between the output of Tom Waits and the Cowboy Junkies." Read more at theaustralian.com.au.
