We first met Lower Dens at CMJ 2010, which now seems like eons ago. Today we have a new video from the Baltimore band. ”Propagation” is the second video off their new album Nootropics (pronounced No-eh-tro-pics,) out today on Ribbon Music. Directed by Sebastian Mlynarksi, the video for “Propagation” is inspired by the Japanese dance style, Butoh, which came out of post-WWII era Japan as a form of experimental protest in dance. Pretty appropriate for May Day 2012. We love Lower Dens and have been fans of Jana Hunter through many of her projects, so we couldn’t be happier to see more things coming from these guys. Lower Dens play a SOLD OUT show at Mercury Lounge tonight and another tomorrow at Glasslands.
Tickets are still available for their Philly, DC, and Baltimore shows. More dates for their US tour here.
