Lower Dens | Non Grata

The Lower Dens/House Lords 7-inch split is the ninth record release launched as part of Famous Class’ “Less Artists More Condos” series. The series was created to honor the memory of Ariel Panero, a friend and partner in Famous Class. Past releases have seen the pairings of bands like A Place to Bury Strangers and Ceremony, Deerhoof and Half Waif — along with other artists like Xiu Xiu, Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees. This week’s 7-inch features a single called “Non Grata” from the Lower Dens, fresh off the success of their 2012 release, “Nootropics”. “Non Grata” find the band in sweet form, as dark atmospherics merge with robotic funked-out electronics, creepy guitar lines, and the delectably rich and spectral vocals of Jana Hunter. You can stream the Lower Dens track below or go to bandcamp to stream or purchase both tracks. Follow Lower Dens at twitter. – David D. Robbins Jr.

Lower Dens | Candy (Video)


Lower Dens posted a new video for the dark and beautifully enchanting “Candy”, a song off their stellar release, “Nootropics”, out via Ribbon Music. Front-woman Jana Hunter sounds fantastic on this track, and it’s one of a handful of my favorites off the record. The video was directed by Alan Resnick and Noah Collier. -- David D. Robbins Jr.

Lower Dens | Propagation (Video)

Baltimore’s Lower Dens have a new video for “Propagation”, a track off their sophomore full-length “Nootropics” (No-eh-tro-pics) out on Ribbon Music today. It’s such a drowsily gorgeous, narcotized track, with lead singer Jana Hunter sounding like Chrissie Hynde — her vocals drawn-out and lithe as drifting smoke. Video is directed by Sebastian Mlynarski. You can stream the entire album courtesy of the band, at their website, through Spotify. “Propagation” is the second video from Lower Dens’ new record, following the video for “Brains”. Sorry, but the band’s Brooklyn tour date tonight is sold out, but you can still catch them in Philadelphia, PA at Johnny Brenda’s tomorrow; Washington, D.C. at Rock and Roll Hotel on Thursday; and Friday night in their hometown at the Ottobar. — David D. Robbins Jr.

Lower Dens | Propagation

“Propagation” is a single from Lower Dens’ forthcoming album, “Nootropics”, out May 1st in North America and April 30th for the rest of the world on Ribbon Music. It’s a smokey twilight song, with a tangle of echoed backing vocals, lead vocals, and contemplative atmospheric guitar. A real beauty. You can pre-order “Nootropics” on limited-edition gold-colored double LP with black swirl here. – David D. Robbins Jr.

LOWER DENS | Brains (Video)


Sweet. A very simple, but cool new video from Lower Dens for their slow-burn single “Brains”, from off the upcoming LP “Nootropics”, which will be released on CD, double LP, and digitally on May 1st in North America and April 30th throughout the rest of the world via Ribbon Music. The video was directed by Tristan Patterson, and features lead singer Jana Hunter singing as if on some sort of pirated TV, straight of the David Cronenberg “Videodrome” sense of aesthetics. – David D. Robbins Jr.

LOWER DENS | Brains

Lower Dens and their wonderful lead singer Jana Hunter have a new song out called “Brains” from off the band’s upcoming and highly-anticipated release “Nootropics”. It’s a frenetically-paced track, steady drums mix with gauzy guitar fuzz, hard-strummed bass, as the the song builds into a wave of sound and droning allure. This hypnotic new track follows the group’s 2010 record “Twin-Hand Movement”. You can download the new track at Lower Dens’ official website. Follow the band at facebook, or on twitter.
