laid back melody surrealists lower dens take shape with the release of their second studio album and first for ribbon music - 'nootropics'. while not a complete departure from their debut album 'twin-hand movement' (gnomonsong), 'nootropics' ascends from it's predecessor still. with the creation of 'nootropics', lower dens have authored the second chapter in their ongoing story and the sound is a piercing gaze outside of their once familiar beginnings. 'nootropics' (pronounced no-eh-tro-pics) is said to be inspired by their native b-more, with the album title supposedly a reference to transhumanism (aka the use of technology and artificial intelligence to extend human capabilities). the record was engineered in benton harbor, mi, with producer drew brown (radiohead, sandro perri, beck, blonde redhead) and completed in baltimore, and is the band's first release since carter tanton stepped in to replace departing guitarist will adams.
