With every listen, I seem to grow more and more fonder of Lower Dens’ latest record Escape From Evil, which they released earlier this year via Domino Records.
I heard them play most of the new record near the albums release back in March at Baby’s All Right. They returned for a slightly larger show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in June as a part of the Northside Festival.
Jana Hunter and the rest of the band ran sounded just as triumphant, with new songs, and old, sounding blissful as all hell. The Escape From Evil tracks fit snugly alongside older favorites such as “Brains.” The little subtitles of new songs such as “Non Grata” and “To Die in L.A.” sound even better live. They had command of the crowd the whole night, and didn’t let loose at any point.
They’ll make their return to New York on September 28 for a performance at sister space Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are currently still on sale.
Find photos of their performance below, along with opener TEEN.
