Lower Dens

7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 12. The Luminary Center for the Arts, 4900 Reber Place.

Lower Dens
Shawn Brackbill
Lower Dens is part of a growing Baltimore scene.

Jana Hunter boasts quite the pedigree, from her split LP with Devendra Banhart to collaborations with the likes of CocoRosie and Indian Jewelry. Hunter fronts the Baltimore-based Lower Dens, whose latest album, Nootropics, forms a union of chilling vocals with space-rock guitar. Lower Dens manages to funnel Woodstock-era psychedelia into a pure drone of lovely pop music. The percussion stays pointed and firm, merging the understated bass with repetitive drive. Hunter works in a minimalist approach to the benefit of permeable songs that sound shiny and accessible.

First to Show, Last to Go: For all the ink we can spill Lower Dens is a sure bet, but opener No Joy brings a more jagged edge to the femme-fronted psych rock you're already there for. Show up on time.
