Nth Wheel, Lower Plenty – The Stevens ‘A History Of Hygiene’ LP Launch, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2013-12-20)

The Stevens Poster BW

Unfortunately I was unable to stay for The Stevens’ set, who were launching their fantastic LP on the night, but I got some really great recordings of Nth Wheel and Lower Plenty.

I’ve been a fan of Nth Wheel for a while now – this set documents the now-four-piece’s continued movement away from earlier grating downer sludge to a fuller embrace of pop elements. These new songs are great, quite different but still retaining a lot of what made the band interesting to begin with. That being said, I’m super glad the band played Catch You Out and Drug Holiday.

It had been ages since I saw Lower Plenty play a show with Sarah (as apposed to just a three piece), so it was awesome to see her playing with them again. Heaps of new songs in this set, some that they’ve been playing live for a while now. All are fantastic – I’m very much looking forward to their heavily-rumored third album.
