Standing in a circle as if they can't bear to miss themselves play, these four men are relaxed like it's just another Friday night of beer and chord progressions in singer Scott Levesque's garage. Sure, they laugh when things get too loose, but you can always feel the fire-eyed intent, the absolute conviction. Quite right, when you have such lovely, lucid songs, glowing like Super-8 memories; the amorous surrender of 'Girl Singer', Scott's voice cracking like a sun-dried Steve Malkmus, 'Summer' looping round and round Rick Brennan's daydream guitar, the Guided By Voices desolation of 'Soft Polluted Blacks'. "An acoustic guitar just isn't sexy, is it?" smiles Scott, patently wrong for the first time tonight.
Adding the forcefield to the pastoral idyll, Wheat provide both the raw material and the pure grain spirit. Drink deep.
