“Don’t look back / Wait for me,” Jana Hunter sings in her low moan on “Non Grata,” from Lower Dens’ split 7-inch with Baltimore neighbors Horse Lords (via Pitchfork). Lower Dens’ 2012 album Nootropics expertly rewarded such patient open-mindedness on tracks “Candy” and “Brains,” and the misty psych-folk band’s latest track is in a similar vein.
“Non Grata” is from the ninth installment in Famous Class’ Less Artist More Condos series. Like previous entries, including Ty Segall’s disco-powered “Music for a Film,” it benefits the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music, a nonprofit devoted to instrumental music education in public schools. Listen to both sides of the release on Bandcamp, and check out our 2012 Lower Dens profile.
