Lower Dens have made a video for "To Die In L.A." which is the first single from their forthcoming Escape from Evil. Directed by SSION's Cody Critcheloe, the video is a mini noir thriller set in the titular city and starring singer/model/scenester Actually Huizenga. Says Lower Dens' Jana Hunter:
The song takes its name from the film, 'To Live and Die in L.A.' and both the song and the film are about something wild, careless, exciting and tragic. The video needed to reflect that. Cody was the obvious choice. The first time I saw him in person, he was on top of a crowd in Monterrey, pelvic-thrusting and singing, as SSION. I fell in love immediately. Who better to translate this ode to reckless firebrands.You can watch the video below.
As mentioned, Lower Dens will celebrate the new album with a few shows, including Baby's All Right on March 31 which is the LP's release date and is now sold out. Lower Dens will be on a more proper tour this summer, with another stop in NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 11 which is part of the Northside Festival. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday (2/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (2/25) at noon.
The summer tour hasn't officially been announced yet, but all known dates are listed below...

Lower Dens @ Chicago's the Riv, 10/1/2012 (more by Grant McAllister)
Baltimore's Lower Dens went into new, motorik directions on their second album, Nootropics so it makes sense that tracks from the record might work well in the remix world. Hence, the Nootropics Remixed EP which takes three cuts off the album and puts them into the hands of Trentemøller, Cex, and Steve Moore. You can stream Trentemøller's excellent recrafting of Nootropics standout cut "Brains" below. You can buy it directly from Ribbon Music, and if you buy any Lower Dens title, you'll get Nootropics Remixed for free.
Meanwhile, Lower Dens shared with us their picks for Best of 2012. All four current members contributed lists and none of them were straight LP lists, mixing media with inclusions for live shows, books, food, film and ephemera. Check them out below, along with that "Brains" remix.

House of Ladosha (via)
Brooklyn duo House of Ladosha, who recently opened for Azealia Banks, have been around for some time but they've been buzzing a bit lately due to an increased attention to the "gay rap" (for lack of better words) scene, which has been the subject of many recent articles, most of which they are mentioned in, along with Mykki Blanco (who plays NYC this week) and the arguably more successful Le1f.
They have two upcoming local shows scheduled at the moment, including 285 Kent on August 25 with Triple Six Sound Club, Neuport, and P.O.L. Style and Santos Party House on September 20 with SSION, whose video for "FEELZ GOOD (4-EVR)," which you can watch below, features a cameo from House of Ladosha, and TEETH. The Santos show also doubles as SSION's album release party. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
House of Ladosha just dropped a new song called "Bel Ami" (ft. C-Breezy), which you can download above, or stream below with the SSION video and a list of all upcoming dates...

The Gossip played Terminal 5 on Tuesday (May 22), supporting their new, disco-ized album A Joyful Noise which came out the same day. Given the success of the Soulwax remix of "Standing in the Way of Control," it's a logical progression, and Beth Ditto has taken on the new role with the command you'd expect. Maybe you watched the show from your couch, as it streamed live from Bowery Presents's YouTube channel. There are video clips from that stream below if you missed in on Tuesday.
The band jet off to Europe soon for a tour and those dates are listed below. Check out more pictures of The Gossip's T5 set below, as well as openers Ssion and Creep (who got a little help from School of Seven Bells' Alejandra Deheza).
Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon for the two Wilco shows in Prospect Park. They go on general sale on Friday at noon which is also when the My Morning Jacket show at Williamsburg Park goes on sale. My Morning Jacket dates meanwhile goes on presale at noon but access requires signing up for their fan club or something (promo code MMJ2012).
Williamsburg Park now has five shows total announced and will be part of the Northside Festival in June too.

Ever...
Now in its fourth year, Fun Fun Fun Fest has made a significant impact on the country's winter calendar, successfully combining the vast worlds of indie, punk, rap, electronica and comedy while showcasing some of the city's most unique local businesses.
