Last week I lamented not being able to keep up with the ever expanding Daytrotter sessions.  Ditto goes for Hear Ya who have been releasing some excellent stuff this past year including last week’s session with Rhode Island’s The Low Anthem. Below is the one of the session’s highlights, “This God Damn House,” and the pertinent notes. Be sure to check out the companion video.

“…one of my favorite tracks from What The Crow Brings emerges in “This God Damn House.” Ben starts off with his alto horn while Jeff gets the feet moving on the pump organ. We were all taken by surprise when Ben stepped away from the mic to grab his cell phone. We started switching cameras from him, assuming he had pressing business that required an urgent text message. But then he grabbed a second phone and lifted them up as he whistled to create a spectral sound to finish the song.”

Head over to Hear Ya to grab the session in its entirety, plus videos.

    It’s impossible to keep up if you have a real job 🙁

  3. @Miguel – No joke. The solution to all of this? We all get jobs with Daytrotter. Problem solved.

    I just want to throw in that The Low Anthem is quite possibly the best concert I’ve seen all year. Incredibly emotional and moving and beautiful.

  5. One of the best albums of the year.

  6. quite have to agree with you all on this, I saw them on Block Island this summer where I was living and they recorded the album, wow it was great to hear something so timeless and ethreal in this dingy bar that I love so much.

  7. Thanks for the shout AD. Seeing these guys perform up that close was something special.

    Since its impossible to keep up with Gore’s Internet, I’d recommend checking out our session with The Deep Dark Woods. Might be my all time fav that we’ve done.

    We also have Strand Of Oaks, Port O’Brien, Elliott Brood, Lissie and AA Bondy coming before the end of the year.
