Charlie Darwin

Charles Robert Darwin  (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882)

Cut & Paste post for Charlie Darwin’s birthday from a 2009 Beat Surrender feature on The Low Anthem. 
The tracks are from the bands performance on NPR’s Mountain Stage in April, and given Darwin himself was born just a few miles up the road from me and it’s the bicentenary of his birth it’s fitting “his” track appears in this set.
