    The Low Anthem Performs on WFUV's "Words and Music from Studio A," Their Music "Always Compelling, Inventive and Fresh"
    Ryan Mastro

    Before they left for their current European tour, The Low Anthem visited NPR member station WFUV in New York City to discuss the making of their latest Nonesuch release, Smart Flesh, which they recorded at an abandoned pasta sauce factory in Rhode Island, and perform a number of songs off the album: "Matter of Time," "Hey, All You Hippies!," "Boeing 737," and "Ghost Woman Blues." You can hear those performances on WFUV's Words and Music from Studio A and their conversation with host Claudia Marshall, now available online at npr.org.

    The Low Anthem's music "is at times a rowdy stomp, at others a breathless, hymn-like hush," says Marshall. "The Low Anthem's music is always compelling, inventive and fresh. Welcome to folk music 3.0."

    The band returns to the States from its European tour with The Head and the Heart in mid-April and will head straight out on the road again, first with Iron and Wine through the rest of April, then heading to New Orleans Jazz Fest and launching its own headlining tour. For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of Smart Flesh on vinyl and CD, with high-quality, 320 kbps of album included at checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she made the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph." Chaney performs in London on June 19; tickets are on sale now for her North American summer tour.
