Today's local music: Lower Dens
Local music comes from outside the San Francisco borders for the week of Monday February 4.
It's because of a bet KALW made with Baltimore public radio station WTMD about the Super Bowl.
Because the 49ers lost, KALW lost the bet so all week Crosscurrents is featuring local bands from Baltimore.
Baltimore indie-rock band Lower Dens is first up - a five-piece with two full-length albums to its name: Twin Hand Movement (2010) and Nootropics (2012).
Singer/songwriter Jana Hunter is the frontwoman and she is joined by guitarist Will Adams, bassist Geoff Graham, drummer Nate Nelson, and Carter Tanton on keyboard.
Crosscurrents featured Lower Dens' song Holy Water.
