DOWNLOAD: Lower Dens - Brains
Baltimore band Lower Dens nails a distinct atmospheric darkness, so obviously I've been anticipating the follow-up to the group's 2010 breakthrough Twin-Hand Movement. Well, it's finally here in the hypnotic "Brains." Driven with a puttering motorik beat and cold black waves of guitar, the song plays on tension until it finally explodes into an anthemic Kraut-pop monster. An awesome preview of coming attractions.
