When Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter set out to write Nootropics, her Baltimore folk-gaze crew’s forthcoming full-length (and Ribbon Music debut), she opted to start with a keyboard instead of a guitar, just as an exercise. “Brains,” the minimal but seismic first listen from that full-length still features some guitar strings, but it’s a markedly different animal from anything Hunter’s offered to date. She’s actually front and center for the Tristan Patterson-directed clip for “Brains” below, and what appears to be static is anything but.
