Recorded in a single live take around a handful of microphones, here’s the first taster from the forthcoming album by The Low Anthem. You can almost feel the cold lingering in the air of the videos “Pasta Sauce Factory” location; ghostly piano chords reverberating throughout the skeletal frame of the song with only a lonesome clarinet and three-way harmony keeping the whole thing upright. A band fascinated with tone and timbre; ‘Ghost Woman Blues’ is nothing short of breathtaking and a tantalising peak at one of early 2011′s most eagerly awaited releases.
