1_Television_House Of Vans

On October 8 House Of Vans delivered a fantastic post-summer concert featuring a stacked triple bill. New York’s very own Television headlined, while Viet Cong and Lower Dens offered strong support. It may have been Viet Cong’s last show here under that name since they’re in the process of changing it, which made their perforamnce a little bit more special.

Lower Dens at The Bowery Ballroom (September 29, 2015)

By Anthony Bauer, December 31st 2015

LowerDens-BoweryBallroom-22

On a late September night, Lower Dens made their return to New York for a show at The Bowery Ballroom. Along for the ride and opening the show was Abdu Ali, who also hails from Baltimore (just like Lower Dens). 2015 has been a fantastic year for Lower Dens – they released their absolutely amazing third album, Escape from Evil back in March via Ribbon Music and have stopped in to New York for a bunch of shows, including an album release show at Baby’s All Right and a Northside Festival performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

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.

[new]: Lower Dens – Brains

By Will Oliver, January 17th 2012 — with 1 comment

Baltimore’s Lower Dens have released a killer new song called “Brains”. Heavy on the layers of instrumentation, the song just builds and builds as dramatically as one could hope. The guitar fuzz rises and echos, stimulating memories of your own past that you thought were lodged deep within your brain.

“Brains” will be on their new album Nootropics, which is out May 1 via Ribbon Music.

There was no way I could pass up seeing The Gene Clark No Other tour when it came to Brooklyn. First of all No Other is truly a great record, one that often gets forgotten. Secondly, members of some of my favorite bands were getting together to put it on. Where else would you get to see members of Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Grizzly Bear and The Walkmen on the same stage?

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2012

Yesterday I blessed you with my favorite albums from 2012, and now, here are my favorite songs from 2012. It’s always tough to narrow songs down to a list, even if the list is 100 songs long. A lot of great new music comes out at a rapid-fire basis these days, from the biggest artists, to the smallest.

When it came down to it, these were the songs that kept the best company of the last 12 months.

As always thanks to Camilo for the artwork. You can stream the songs themselves, or listen to one giant spotify stream right here.

I present to you:
