The lead track, Brains, from the new Lower Dens album, Nootropics (which I'm sure you know by now is pronounced No-eh-tropics), has been everpresent on the UOH playlist since the end of January. It's an unassuming krautrock monster of a tune. And the video is available now. More of a filmic interpretation really, directed by the award-winning Tristan Patterson, where each minute twitch in the musical arrangement has a visual shadow. So the entry of the hi-hat on 45s prompts a rhythmic shiver around the inscrutable Jana Hunter's face. It's ingenious really. I recommend you click here this minute.
Tour dates are to be announced around album release time (end of April), including in Ireland apparently, so stay tuned.
