Art of the Cover - Lower Dens' "Escape From Evil" (2015)

Lower Dens have just released the follow-up to 2012’s gorgeous Nootropics.

A collection which showcase the Baltimore quartet’s descent into ’80s-inspired minimalist pop.

On Escape From Evil, the band's lead singer Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. Hunter is stepping up and taking center stage has emboldened every other aspect of the band.

Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is very strong indeed!

The album was produced by Jana Hunter with no small help from Chris Coady (known for his work on acclaimed albums bu the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Blonde Redhead ... etc.).

Escape From Evil is out now on Ribbon Music.
