Lower Dens – “Twin-hand Movements”
A four-man band from Baltimore and one of many side projects of Jana Hunter this is. Their psychedelic, experimental indie rock makes me think of bands like Sonic Youth, The Low Frequency in Stereo, The Warlocks and Calla.
“Together, the freak folk quartet has a sound that is psychedelic and murky, embodying the experimental nature of the Baltimore music scene with songs that are equal parts reverb-drenched folk and swirling ambience.” (Allmusic.com)
Almost every track on the album is great and unique, and my favorites are “Tea Lights”, “Rosie” and “Hospice Gates”.
My rating: 8/10
