Track of the Day: Lower Dens – Hospice Gates

26 May
(Note: Due to the sheer number of submissions we receive, there is no way we can give each and every album the attention (and word count) it deserves, but we can devote time to at least one song from each. So we started this feature to give worthy bands and their music a spot to shine. We hope this helps you discover new and exciting acts, and as always if you enjoy the music please make an attempt to support the artists by either attending a show or buying a record.)

Jana Hunter is awesome, and any band she puts together should automaticly be awesome. So when I learned that her new band, Lower Dens, was not only going on a national tour but putting out a full-length titled Twin-Hand Movement, my first thought was “awesome.”

Lower Dens- Hospice Gates

Verdict: At a time when so much of the music that’s out there feels the same, it’s nice to hear something that is similar yet completely different. Led by Hunter’s drumming, “Hospice Gates” is a weirdly anthemic piece that continually pushes forward with Hunter’s vocals, and a bit of jangle to the guitar parts, before ending in a wave of chaotic feedback. Awesome.
