THE ORBWEAVERS @ ST MICHAELS
Having fallen for Melbourne "folk noir" outfit The Orbweavers' Graphite And Diamonds album back in 2009, it took another two years to get to see them live. Thanks to Melbourne Music Week, popping my Orbweavers cherry was a tasteful and gentle experience. And, in a church. Armed with new material from their recent Loom album, they nestled perfectly into a night curated by Mistletone. Later in the evening the church quivered in feedback from the always raucous Beaches and grew cathedral-of-sound size for Htrk's mesmerising headline slot. So to celebrate churches being the new nightclub, some Orbweavers.
