Lower Dens - "Brains"

Micachu & The Shapes - "Low Dogg"

Less-heavy corners, if you knew the right ones to look in, still revealed an magically itchy sort of unease. Baltimore's Lower Dens did their best work yet on the terrific Nootropics. "Brains", keeps its krautrock tight, while Jana Hunter floats over the groove, steps gently around it, peeks out from just around the corner. London's Micachu & The Shapes lowered their already unusual pop down into a grungy tunnel on their second album, stitching rusty industrial loops together, softening them only slightly with very British melodies deflated down to quarter size.
