LOWER: “Someone’s Got It in for Me” b/w “But There Has to Be More”: 7″

Two songs of lurching, brooding post-punk from Denmark. Futile attempts have been made on my behalf in trying to avoid bringing up two things: the fact that Lower are often mentioned in the same breath as country mates Iceage and how much this reminds me of early Joy Division. I hate to say this, but I can’t help but feel like this style is the soup du jour in the current underground music scene and I, for one, have enough sense to know that soup isn’t going to satisfy my appetite. –Juan Espinosa
