The fourth album from Lower Dens, The Competition is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent, dealing with modern capitalism and its psychotic effects. Its 11 songs range in scope from the personal to the political, but overall express an epiphany: you need radical and unquestioning compassion for yourself if you’re to reimagine what society could be.

More diverse instrumentation and a slightly more uplifting tone are the first things I noticed. But it's still the Bon Iver I love, instantly recognisable, unmistakable. He's always been a master at letting the music breathe and that's still here. Marion takes me back to For Emma, Forever Ago. rob hammond
