    The Low Anthem Featured in Cover Story of Paste's Inaugural Digital mPlayer
    Paste

    The Low Anthem is featured on the cover of the inaugural issue of Paste magazine's new weekly digital, multimedia mPlayer, which includes a cover story on the band by Jay Sweet; exclusive photos by Ryan Mastro; a download of "Boeing 737" off the band's latest Nonesuch release, Smart Flesh; and a short documentary video shot by Mastro at the band's unforgettable album release concert held earlier this year at the pasta sauce factory in Central Falls, Rhode Island, in which the new album was recorded, and featuring complete performances of "Hey All You Hippies," off Smart Flesh, as well as "Charlie Darwin," off their 2010 Nonesuch debut album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin.

    Launched today, Paste magazine’s new mPlayer is now available in a Beta Preview, until early September, when the web-based mPlayer, which delivers a new issue of the magazine every week, becomes a paid subscription platform available to all consumers, with native apps for iOS and Android also in the works.

    “We decided to resurrect the magazine electronically, but rather than just pretending that a computer screen, tablet or mobile device was a piece of paper, we wanted to start from scratch and reinvent what a magazine could be in digital form,” says Tim Regan-Porter, Paste’s president.

    Paste editor-In-chief Josh Jackson adds, “When we launched the print magazine in 2002, we included the sampler CD so our readers could experience the music we wrote about. The mPlayer takes that original idea to the next level with an intuitive, integrated experience."

    For more information and to access the mPlayer and its Low Anthem features, visit mplayer.pastemagazine.com.

    To pick up a copy of Smart Flesh and Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    The Low Anthem performed a number of shows in Europe over the weekend, making its Madrid debut at the dcode Festival on Friday, then heading to Belfast, Northern Ireland, for the 13th annual Open House Festival on Saturday for a triple-bill with Fleet Foxes and the Villagers, and closing out the European run on Sunday with two sets at the Glastonbury Festival.

    The Independent's Nick Hasted reports that the band was "kicking up a storm" at Glastonbury, "enjoying themselves to an almost fevered extent in front of a small, devoted crowd. Their look of delight was one I saw on many musicians' faces over the weekend. Playing to this audience seems to be as special as being in it."

    On Friday, July 8, at 11 AM ET, Low Anthem band member Jeff Prystowsky will be stopping by ESPN's SportsNation to answer fans' questions about music and baseball. Prystowsky and band mate Ben Knox Miller were teammates on a wood-bat baseball team called the Providence Grays before forming Low Anthem, and Prystowsky once taught baseball history at a high school in Providence. To submit a question for Jeff and find out more information about the chat, visit espn.go.com.

    The band's next live show is slate for July 9, when they take the stage at Impérial de Québec for the Quebec City Festival. For more on the band's upcoming performances, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
