For Jana Hunter, the multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter of rising Baltimore band Lower Dens, album release dates typically mean anxiety and, once they're over, relief. But on the morning her group's second album, "Nootropics," hit stores, she said this day felt different. "I'm very excited about it," Hunter said earlier this week. "I feel like a little kid celebrating a birthday or something. " It's a feeling the members of Lower Dens have earned. After the band released its critically acclaimed debut album, "Twin-Hand Movement," in 2010, the group toured beyond the point of exhaustion, leading to member departures and panic attacks.

Unofficially, they're coming for the same reason sex columnist Ashley Alexandra Dupre left the 'burbs: To make a splash.

Before the show began, lines of eager concertgoers snaked down the sidewalk outside the club. The crowd of more than 1,000 well-dressed hipsters poured into the space until there was barely room to move - let alone dance.

On a chilly Friday night in New York City, Jana Hunter sang a dreamy ballad over a persistent bass line, her quivering voice cradled by the atomic guitar work of her bandmates in Lower Dens.
