Lower Dens (band)

mrmagoo  said about 3 years ago  or at  11:27AM on Thursday, February 23 2012 in music

just wanted to make a thread about a band I like, that don't have a thread

great shoegazey band, comparsons to Deerhunter et al, fronted by Jana Hunter who has a really interesting voice (she has released some solo stuff on Devendra's label, as well as collaborations with Phosporescent and CocoRosie)

Lower Dens released Twin Hand Movement in 2010, which is a really great album
check out the song Rosie

new album 'Nootropics' coming out in May, first song from it has come out recently, called 'Brains'
you can see the vid on their site -
or just listen here -

Try and hunt out their Channel 4 (UK) special ''Abbey Road Debuts'' with Tom Ravenscroft from April / May 2011

A track from it is on Soundcloud

Was hoping to see them in a month or so but the show is now sold out

hyperfuzz  said about 2 years ago:

Going to see them tonight. Have heard nothing. Will let you know!

hyperfuzz  said about 2 years ago:

Some bits were great. Other bits flat. It was orrite. Bought the record on the strength of the good bits.

dimestorehood  said about 2 years ago:

where'd you see them hyperfuzz?

Mercury Lounge, NYC.

mrmagoo  said about 2 years ago:

really keen to see them at Primavera, i hope the clashes aren't too severe!

anok  said about 2 years ago:

i'm not feeling the new record, but they played some oldies at sxsw. definitely check them magoo!

steveholt  said about 2 years ago:

Really liking Nootropics. Good sound.

gabbo  said about 2 years ago:

regret missing them at sxsw., but i think i was eating an awesome burger instead, so, y'know... swings and roundabouts.

anok  said about 2 years ago:

lalz. story of my sxsw. so many sets missed because of delicious food.

mrmagoo  said about 2 years ago:

Nootropics is the definition of a grower i think, really liking it now

Great production, quite dark at times

tigers  said about 2 years ago:

I'm digging this too. I have two bands in my playlist starting in 'lower'. It's annoying me more than it should.

mule  said about 1 year ago:

Discovered these guys through the whats in my bag with sharon van etten, great band. Their sound is pretty samey throughout twin hand movement but its a good'n.
