Bedroom Suck Records presents the third LP from Melbourne's, Lower Plenty
This is a curious record, an interesting amalgamation. Lower Plenty are a Melbourne four piece made up of experienced muso’s who have found time over the past two and a bit years to put together Life/Thrills, their third album as a unit.
Suburban malaise and considerate reflection saturates each note – a common thematic element of the current generation of contemporary Australian folk-pop. Sparse percussion and acoustic guitar work well, seemingly recorded in tight spaces where the noise can soak and the lyrics can stand alone, without being washed out or overwhelmed; although the instrumentation is minimal in parts it still feels vibrant.
