lower dens Batman / Dear Betty Baby (7", £4.95)label: gnomonsong
This single includes two amazingly well articulated moments from America's newest sweethearts, Baltimore's Lower Dens. Batman is one of the most arresting songs from the recordings that yielded the heralded and regaled Twin-Hand Movement album. The band waited until just the right moment to unleash this crystalline piece of pop perfection. Ending in a sweet buzz of humming, ringing guitars, the song is over before you know it. Feel free to pause and repeat. On the flip, Lower Dens demonstrate a different, equally winning approach on their suitably elegant reading of Mayo Thompson's paean over five minutes of majesty and mood. These two songs complement and build perfectly on the sound of Twin-Hand Movement.
