NEW MUSIC: LOWER DENS 'ESCAPE FROM EVIL' (O.B.O. RIBBON MUSIC)

Lower Dens | 31/03/15

Ribbon Music is pleased to announce the return of Baltimore’s Lower Dens with their third album, 'Escape from Evil'.
 
Lower Dens’ 2010 debut, 'Twin-Hand Movement', was a stunning evolution of guitar brilliance and murky emotiveness, while its 2012 follow-up, 'Nootropics' was a stark, textured paean to experimental bands of the krautrock era. 'Escape from Evil' marks a bold, monumental step forward for the band and the welcome manifestation of Jana Hunter as a singer we’ve never quite seen until now.

23-year-old songwriter James Cicero grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, the son of Italian and Spanish Catholics. His grandfather was a poor trumpet player, and his father a strict military man. As a result, when Cicero bought his first guitar at the age of seventeen, his father took to locking it in the attic. Cicero left for college in Dekalb, IL, met drummer Matt Evert, obsessively wrote songs... Read »
