“when variety sounds this good, it's hard to fault a band for sharing so many ideas in one place” pitchfork
 
"Lower Dens know when to hold back and when to push forward, how to manipulate the dynamics of a rhythm for maximum effect, when empty space is more powerful than noise, and when noise is perfectly placed to suffocate and exploit an open space…… an album that soars without ever needing to deliver anything so obvious or clichéd as a punch line." Drowned in Sound
 
“Each listen brings me new sounds to fall in love with. " The Line of Best Fit
 
"one of the best alt-rock albums we've heard all year." Neu Magazine
 
Not only are Baltimore’s LOWER DENS (Jana Hunter – vocals/guitar, Will Adams – guitar, Geoff Graham – bass/vocals and Abram Sanders – drums) playing tonight at London’s Lock Tavern supporting Beach House on their UK dates and, having released one of the most beautifully dynamic and not to mention, under-rated albums of the year with debut Twin Hand Movement (Gnomonsong) – the band can now confirm they will be supporting DEERHUNTER at Shepherd Bush Empire on 31st March 2011. Tickets are on sale now and full details can be found HERE.

Twin-Hand Movement contains eleven perfect songs, rife with the survivalist paranoia one expects from residents of a post-urban port hole (and this particular songwriter), crafted methodically and beautifully, carrying the listener enthusiastically out into the rolling breaks of industrial filth-water.

LISTEN TO 'TEA LIGHTS' & 'HOSPICE GATES' HERE

Swarming guitar fuzz, bass waves, insistent drum throbs and Jana Hunter’s redolent, charred voice are the core components of the band. Hunter, sometimes known for intimate, ghost- heavy weird-fi, now writes and plays with a group that might get filed under new wave, or drone pop, or post-punk. With due deference to her solo work, we’re very glad.

Recorded by Chris Freeland (ex-Oxes drummer; proprietor of Beat Babies, Baltimore), mixed by Chris Coady (at his DNA, NYC), and mastered by Sarah Register (of the Lodge, NYC and the band Talk Normal), Twin Hand Movement is a collection of songs where, from opener “Blue & Silver” (anxiety mounts at a quick clip until the final climactic release) to “Plastic & Powder” (a churning, narcotic slow-burner) and  “Hospice Gates” (penultimate album cut, proud weirdo anthem, possible creative zenith), not one is a space-waster.
