Lower Dens' 2010 debut LP Twin-Hand Movement was a largely overlooked moment of understated brilliance. Native Texan turned Baltimore transplant Jana Hunter had been quietly toiling in the throes of experimental indie rock for years before forming an official band around his uneasily atmospheric solo songs, and though there was no dramatic shift in style or tone, something crystallized under the Lower Dens namesake that hadn't been there before. Finding a foggy middle ground between Motorik-Krautrock rhythms and the most dimly lit corners of shoegaze, Twin-Hand Movement built an atmosphere that was instantly transfixing though deceptively simple. Following a series of singles and a few other scattered appearances, the band returns with sophomore effort Nootropics, expanding their sound only slightly with more electronic elements. While less guitar-centric, the same narcotic feel of the first album carries through here, a patient continuation of the languid summer night soundscape that Twin-Hand Movement set up so well. In some ways, Nootropics is a series of continuations. The two-part "Lion in Winter" begins with a bed of ominous synth tones before abruptly emerging into a new wave-leaning, subdued pop track driven by tinny electronic drums and bumbling synth bass. The minimal churn of "Brains" continues without a pause into the scratchy Neu-inspired addendum "Stem." Moments like these make the album feel like an ongoing extension of itself, circular themes of anxiety and displacement reappearing through the clouds of moody melodies. Hunter's ghostly vocals are sometimes reminiscent of Baltimore peer Victoria Legrand of Beach House, calling out softly from under layers of wistfully beautiful noise. The similarities are striking on "Propagation," a dirge filled with longing that duets Eno-esque fuzz guitars with a humid vocal line. The moment that brings everything into focus on the album is the last 45 seconds of "Lamb." This darkly brilliant composition goes from tersely building verses into a soaring arc and unexpectedly fading into disintegrating noise as it ends. Much like Belong's blurry melodies tangled in webs of noise or even the holy sonics of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless, it's in this brief moment of transcendence that Lower Dens achieve something so otherworldly it's impossible to ignore. Like its predecessor and the earliest Beach House records, Nootropics is so mired in restraint it will fail to grab many ears on the first go-round. However, once listeners get their heads around the sound, it's a definite on-repeat player. Free of flash, Nootropics is the sound of smoldering. It's the sound of what's left behind after the fireworks display, and the gentle dread of smoky ashes floating softly down from the sky onto an empty beach. ~ Fred Thomas

Lhasa, el astro inolvidable

Tan solo tres álbumes en estudio, un directo y tres giras internacionales bastaron a Lhasa de Sela para dejar una huella imborrable en la historia de la música popular contemporánea. La llorona, The Living Road y Lhasa son trabajos tan diferentes como redondos que nos muestran un universo peculiar y al mismo tiempo reconocible, a medio camino entre el sueño y la realidad. Sus temas, elaborados a partir de claroscuros, nos hablan sinceramente de los sentimientos de una artista cuyo arte vocal, intimista, rebosante de emoción, establece con el oyente un pacto de complicidad. Por lo demás, su trayectoria vital puede leerse a manera de capítulos de una novela, sin que falten los ingredientes del mito ni los estremecimientos de los relatos más hermosos y conmovedores.

Tom Waits, los años de Asylum

Antes de convertirse en una suerte de Howlin’Wolf, punk de cabaret el personaje de Tom Waits surgirá bajo la forma de un compositor obsesionado con el jazz, las melodías de Broadway y la Generación Beat de Kerouac. Entre 1973 y 1980, el californiano grabó para el sello Asylum seis álbumes de estudio y uno en vivo, recientemente reeditado y remasterizado en Hi-Res 24-Bit. Una vuelta a los inicios tan caóticos como estimulantes de los más seductores vagabundos del Dharma.

Y Jack White acudió al rescate del rock

Tanto en los años Whites Stripes como ahora en solitario, Jack White no ha dejado de cortocircuitar los modos del rock más trillado. Diez años después de «Seven Nation Army», este genio siempre envuelto en mil proyectos nos hace un vaticinio: el rock está de vuelta, y regresa con fuerza. Mientras tanto, no estará de más analizar el fenómeno en que se ha convertido White.
