Lower Dens

Swarming guitar fuzz, bass waves, Jana Hunter’s voice, and insistent drum throbs are the core components of Baltimore’sLower Dens. Hunter, sometimesknown for intimate, ghost-heavy weird-fi, is now writing and playing with a group that mightget filed as new wave, or drone pop, or post-punk.

Swarming guitar fuzz, bass waves, Jana Hunter’s voice, and insistent drum throbs are the core components of Baltimore’sLower Dens.

With duedeference to her solo work, we’re very glad.

The swarming wave-throb, coupled with Hunter’s lyrics and redolent, charred voice, wrecks.

The band’s upcoming record, Twin-Hand Movement, is eleven perfect songs long. From opener “Blue & Silver” (anxiety mountsat a quick clip until the finalclimactic release) to “Plastic & Powder” (a churning, narcotic slow-burner) to “Hospice Gates”(penultimate album cut, proud weirdo anthem, possible creativezenith), not one is a space-taker. They’re rife with thesurvivalist paranoia you’d expect from residents of a post-urban port hole (and this particularsongwriter), crafted methodicallyand beautifully, and carry you enthusiastically out into the rolling breaks of industrial filth-water.

Lower Dens formed in 2009, when Hunter set about finding a full-time band. They spent the rest of the year sweating inattics and basements, and onlystepped out of the shadows to do a quick tour and record. Twin-Hand Movement wasrecorded by Chris Freeland (ex-Oxes drummer; proprietor of BeatBabies, Baltimore), mixed by Chris Coady (at his DNA, NYC),and mastered by Sarah Register (of the Lodge, NYC and the band Talk Normal. « hide
