Lower Dens / Treasure Island @ Eclectic

Still not sure how to deal with that mad awk block of time between The Princess Bride and Haters in the Building? Enjoyed DIVE’s set last weekend in Eclectic’s dining room, but wish there was a touch more gated reverb involved? Or does it just seem like freaking forever since Treasure Island’s maddeningly infectious “TV & Poetry” was stuck like nutella in your head?

As we’ve previously reported round these parts, Baltimore-based indie-mopers Lower Dens are rolling through Eclectic tonight after a spirited opening set by acclaimed Post-Linus sweethearts Treasure Island. Dens’ upcoming offering is a double-LP called Nootropics, and, if “Brains” is any indication, it’s going to be a wonderfully shoegazy, mopey, noise-infested affair. Hannah Baker ’14 offers up more details for tonight’s show:

Lower Dens’ first album, Twin Hand Movement, was arguably one of the best sleeper hits of 2010. Their newest single, “Brains,” was given Best New Music by Pitchfork and their highly anticipated new album, Nootropics, is dropping later this spring on Ribbon Music (the Domino Records-affiliated label that’s released material from John Maus, Laura Marling, and Black Dice).
