The folk rock group, Low Anthem, recorded its latest album, "Smart Flesh," in a vacant pasta sauce factory in their home state of Rhode Island. With songs like "Ghost Woman Blues," the album delves into themes of love and longing, and features the character of a wandering, desolate woman.

The upcoming album expands on the sounds of their last critically acclaimed release, "Oh My God, Charlie Darwin." Here and Now producer Alex Ashlock spoke to the members of Low Anthem in 2009, and we revisit that conversation.

This segment aired on January 7, 2011.
