Lower Dens

janahunter

Do you ever wake up in the morning wondering what Jana Hunter has been up to lately? I really do. It's sort of the same thing as wondering where all the good indie rock went. In that either one of them could be anywhere. Ms. Hunter moves a lot and is as materially elusive as her haunted folk music is elusive in its basic nature.

Recently she has been found  in Baltimore, fronting a band called Lower Dens. They have a single even:

"Hospice Gates"


I have the crazy feeling from this of a big wind coming up. Of something good and strange on the way. Their album, Twin-Hand Movement, is due out in July.

Anyone got a better way to embed a song from a link on here? Or does it only skip on my computer?
