    Video: The Low Anthem on the "Late Show with David Letterman"

    The Low Anthem were the musical guests on the Late Show with David Letterman last night on CBS. They performed "Ghost Woman Blues," the opening track off their soon-to-be-released Nonesuch album, Smart Flesh, the follow-up to their 2009 Nonesuch Records debut album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, due out February 22. The band had promised "a simple affair" and made good on that, gathering close with Ben Knox Miller on guitar, Jocie Adams on clarinet, Jeff Prystowsky on jaw harp, Mat Davidson on hammer dulcimer, and all four band members making sweet four-part harmony. Letterman even came around at the end to compliment their playing, not least Jeff's jaw-harping.

    You can watch it here via CBS.com:


    Instant downloads of "Ghost Woman Blues" are included with all pre-orders of Smart Flesh in the Nonesuch Store. The first 250 pre-orders of the album on CD, vinyl, and in a two-disc deluxe edition also include a letterpress printed poster, signed by the band. All pre-orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album available on release day. To reserve your copy, visit the Nonesuch Store now.

    All About Jazz has published a preview of the album from Something Else! blogger Mark Saleski, who promises: "If you liked Charlie Darwin, you'll love this recording." You can read the article at allaboutjazz.com and somethingelsereviews.com.

    The band remains in New York for a sold-out show tonight in The Allen Room as a part of Lincoln Center's American Songbook series. Details of The Low Anthem's New York City record release show are due out tomorrow. For more on the band's upcoming performances, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
