Lower Dens: “Propagation”
Baltimore band Lower Dens continue the slow march to their highly anticipated sophomore release, Nootropics. “Propogation” is the second single to be offered, and it presents yet another departure from the “new wavey” post punk sound that the band established for itself in their first release. The newest tune is a far dreamier, atmospheric jaunt than most anything off of Twin Hand Movement. It makes it seem more likely that overall, Nootropics will be a slower paced, denser packed series of tunes, which is the impression that the band gave when they performed several of the new songs here a few weeks back. Lower Dens will purportedly be coming back through town again this summer, likely after Nootropics’ May 1st release date.
