Planets and moons followed. Everything in motion, constantly changing, as in a dance of the fireflies. At some point, Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky were born to the human family, grew up to love music, and as atomic randomness dictates, found each other turning two on the baseball diamond. They started a band in 2006 called The Low Anthem, and over ten years of making music together, have developed a distinctive sound, and grown a beautiful friendship. Sounds and silences co-exist. Sounds of nature, extrahuman, fill the silences on the ballfield. What sounds can guitars and basses make into this great creative void? Thus began the journey of acoustics, friendship, song, and their meanings. Providence, RI was the meeting place. They found an apartment together on East St., bought a microphone, and got to work. What came out they called What The Crow Brings. It was their first record. "I remember hanging a microphone outside a third floor window, and the cable dangling over a clothesline on the second floor," mused Jeff. "We got the take, though," said Ben. That winter, while many Rhode Islanders sought shelter on the mainland, Ben and Jeff assembled a small crew of friends and sailed to Block Island to make another album. What came out they called Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. It was their second. "I always wanted to record the sound of crackling fire, and finally had my chance" said Jeff. "You never know what thorns to the rose may grow," said Ben. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=267452 The Bowery Ballroom The Bowery Ballroom
