Lower Plenty w/ Ill Winds & Moon Rituals

  • Botany View Hotel 597 King Street Newtown, NSW, 2042 Australia (map)

Named after a suburb perched on the outer fringes of Melbourne, Lower Plenty are comprised of some of Australia's most talented musicians. The quartet are typically Australian in that they seem to exist on borrowed members, drawing together musicians responsible for bands like Total Control, The UV Race, Deaf Wish and The Focus. Unlike the harsh and direct approach of many of these outfits, Lower Plenty take the circular route, preferring to dwell in isolation and self-reflection, the result being some truly astonishing home recordings. 
The latest album Sister Sister – the band’s fourth – was recorded in a kitchen in Collingwood. It was freezing cold and grey outside, the band rugged up against another Melbourne winter, seated in a circle, each exploring a musical idea of another, imbuing the record with a quality of restlessness and shared warmth.

Egg Nest Music and Bedroom Suck Records are please to announce the band’s first Sydney show in over three years. Joined by by local Sydney band Ill Winds and Moon Rituals. Entry is free.
