Fire Records delve 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.

Comprised of some of the city's most talented musicians, Daniel Twomey, Jensen Tjhung, Sarah Heyward and Al Montfort hail from various other bands such as DEAF WISH, TOTAL CONTROL, UV RACE and THE FOCUS.

A departure from the harsher sounds of their other projects, LOWER PLENTY create beautifully melancholy, suburban-country music that's made 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 - LOWER PLENTY take us on a very exciting ride.

As a bonus both formats include the debut album "Mean" released only on cassette in 2010.
