Introducing >>> Lower Plenty

The always excellent Fire Records have delved further in to the Australian underground with the signing of Melbourne-based four-piece Lower Plenty. Their transfixing LP Hard Rubbish was voted Album of the Year 2012 on Aussie indie bible Mess + Noise and is now due for a worldwide release in April.

Named after a Melbourne suburb, Lower Plenty create beautifully melancholy, suburban-country music that’s made (and often performed) while sitting around the kitchen table.

Raw and delicate, Hard Rubbish was recorded on eight-track reel-to-reel tape, often in just a single take. Their folk-tinged indie rock is flecked with experimentation whilst retaining a firm hold on some fantastically memorable melodies. With a non-traditional set-up of two guitars, drums and processed percussion with four vocals we are looking forward to hearing the full album very much. ‘Til then, like us, you’ll have to make do with downloading Strange Beast from the record…
